there,

had to remove the roof basket cause of 2 reasons.. 1.. truck wont fit on my house.. and wont get in threw the security guard. then i wouldnt be able to get into any auto-anything... then 2. im going a rollcage so this was my chance to get everything setup the way i want with everything thought well on the roof to make it as low and close to the roof as possible

yeah im keeping the BL, i need the room over the engine to move the air filter line upward and make a snorkel, so i got more room to play, plus as i said i want the center of gravity low so that way i dont have to lift alot the suspension and keep it as close to the frame as possible, then when i take of the stock fenders and add some "bushwacker" imitation fender flares on so i wont have any clearence issues.

and besides i need those 3" over the frame under the cab to fit the winch the way i want to, so it doesent go infront of the truck but inside the truck

got a few pics i have on the phone ill get tomarrow. just came back from a week long work trip to an amazing beach on the south of the country with the ocean full of plankton first time i see it and it was great how much bright it was swiming at 3 am on the beach.... after a few beers (ocean was 300 feet away from shore chest deep ... cristal clear....and calm as a swiming pool as it is located in a gulf so no currents what so ever...no danger of drowning lol ..).. o well


got my rear locker today! so hopefully they gona start tearing the rear apart to get the LSD moved to the front and install the rear locker and ordering gears for the front

on monday they are supposed to get the brackets and some stuff for the turbo that needed to get moved to be able to place the steering box .

also talking to the mech we bel.ive truck gona sit as prolly as high as it is right now on the jackstands... a lil taller than what i want but i just need to get wider then.

hope to get real pics on monday when parts arrive.

got a call today from the guy working the truck.. said " hey would u like to see ur truck sitting on 38s?"

axles is already under the truck! sitts pretty low actually even on 38s boggers! to bad the shop was full so there was no way i could take a pic of the truck as it was. space was crowded dont know how he works there...

either way axle is in, tomarrow he takes it off again to start setting up the steering box.

i got already the maxxis big horn almost sold (33s) and im probably getting some maxxis creepy crawler 35s that the mech. can get for cheap new...
