Thanks for all the positive feedback. I still have a metric ton of stuff to do to this rig.

 

The list:

 

Skids

Swing out tiregate

In cab guage for the OBA

Double sheer Track bar and mount( I don't trust the rusty's one ).

Alignment

Cherokee doors

Bed liner the inside cab and bed

Maybe bucket seats

winch setup

The list goes on and on...

 

 

Ps. The only thing the dog will fetch is 8 foot long tree branches. Not kidding :nuts:

When I first got my 4.5 packs from Rusty's my rear sat REALLY high, WAY over 4.5 inches.

 

This is even after I took the lowest leaf out of them:

Now the leaf is back in. After two years and alot of loads of firewood I'm probably now riding at the advertised 4.5 height... Some guys on here are having problems with them breaking, so far mine have held up OK and they are nice and supple for good articulation.

 

Truck looks good, all the Best on the rest of the buildup.

Well I recieved my full guage panel I got off e-bay. It was advertized as 88 to 91, and it is a 92 to 96. :mad:

Obviously he has no idea what he is talking about. You need an '87 to '90 cluster. A '91 cluster is not the same as the '87 to '90 clusters. :nuts:

Some pics of the OBA setup. It consist of a some twin cylinder belt driven compressor my boss gave me. It does real well, and it stays pretty cool. The check valve and relay/pressure switch are from viair. 85 PSI on 110 PSi off. Front bumper is my tank. I still want to get a air manofold to clean everything up.

Do you plan on adding protection for your front corners?

No not at the moment. Basically anything I encounter on a front corner will hit the tire first, or it will hit the center bumper section which is nice for my approach angle. I would like to add a center skid plate to protect my draglink and swaybar. I am more concerned with high centering it. I need to fab up some rocker armor.

I am pretty happy with it. I need to mount it and check everything. Then I can take it back to work to have it sandblasted and painted.

 

And here is some tool porn. :D New tool crib at work.

Ok. I started another project ( like I needed one ). It's a cargo basket that fits flush in between the bed rails. I made it so I can store all my gear and haul wood at the same time.

Kinda like a roof rack for the bed. Still need to put a floor in it and have it blasted and painted. I really wanted to get rid of that POS plastic toolbox.

 

so here is the pics.

55"X24". 3/8 poop pipe. 2"X1/4" Flat.

Clutch plate

Pressure plate

All new u-joints in both shafts

I found a freeze plug leaking. So I am installing a block heater in its place.
