We were at it again.

4 guys, 60+ hours in 4 days....

New Specs:

Triangulated 4- link rear (4ft long rear lowers haha)
3- link with panhard front
2in .25 wall DOM lowers with 1.25 johnny joints at one end and polys at the other
115in wheelbase (from 128.5 in)
Took 12 in out of the front of the box and 8in out of the rear.
Pushed front axle out another 1.5in
Fox Air shocks 14 in front and 16in rear (not on yet)
15 gal fuel cell
Ram assist

The fenders will be cut and going back on front and rear with all of the tubework in the front going behind the fenders.

The bed cage / fender skins arent done yet.

It only has 4-5ft of stock frame left.

Cut 3in out of the rockers and rolled the sheet metal into the tubing. There will also be a tree pivot tube added to the rocker guard.

Still missing the cross on the roof along with a cross inside the cab.

Still a ton of work to do but its getting there.

Should be close to finished and have some more updated pics in a week or so.

Looks awesome, can't wait to see it finished. Your rear axle truss/link mount looks nearly identical to what mine will be getting pretty soon.

Looks pretty good. I must say, when do the 1 tons and SBF show up? Maybe a 3 valve 5.4L? I see they're going for cheap on eBay.

He already said FI302 next fall. He's in Tad's crew......1 tons aren't an option :lol:

Now that I said that I'll somehow be the one breaking shit on the Skanee run. Irony hates me.

I dont have a problem with one tons, i just dont see the point quite yet. I go through my fair share of u-joints but its not bad enough to justify the weight / cost of tons yet.

I may do some alloys for the 44 in the spring, but not sure yet.

Anyone pic a weekend for skanee yet? I cant wait... :lol:
