That is rad! Can't wait to see the finished product. What shocks are you going to run up front to control all of that weight?

3.0x16 c/o, 3.5x18 bypass and 2.5 bump .....little miss matched on the colors right now. Blue 3.5s were already in the rear with deavers.




Got some stuff welded. Still need to weld the pass side radius arm mount, steering mounts (will wait till tierods actually cycle), and a few gussets and pieces here and there. Hopefully steering will be welded and finished before the weekend.




Finally got a mig going on this project. I was 100% tig, but WAY too much welding in a short amount of time.

Heres a good pic of him jumping with the solid axle. And remember, those are 37s on the truck, not 33s haha

Got the steering going today.



Carlos got some nice psc stuff to put on as well. Theres more then just the ram assist

Decided to move the ram onto the swinger instead of putting it on any of the steering links



Camber and caster is now set. I fiddled around with the steering a little more today and everything is set. Everything clears full bump and steer. So after some welding during the week, ill start on the shock hoops and engine crossover. Ride height


Bump


Also added another side plate to the driver side mount
