Got the rear cross member notched for clearance at full droop and limit strap tabs burned on. Fire extinguisher mounts made up for the front seats too. Bumpers are getting powder coated today and got the switch plate for the ARB air toggles tacked up.

Thank you sir!

Got the gooseneck and front driveshaft hoop done this weekend, probably going to put the bed back on tomorrow.

Getting the bed ready to put back on! Had to cut for the gooseneck and notch the bed cross members for clearance on the bypass shocks. Normally they're installed upside down but I wanted the shock body up out of the rocks.

Let me know how it fits with the by pass shocks!! That's one of the things holding me back from those shocks. The upsidedown piggy backs too. Don't like the idea of the body on the bottom. Especially on all the gravel roads. Looking forward to installed pics!!! Looking great!

Thank you sir! Beds on and everything appears to have plenty of clearance. I'll get some under bed shots once it's in place and bolted down. Still have to make some support brackets tied to the frame for the rear transferflow toolbox/tank mounts.

AWESOME work!!!!! All around a slick build! In particular, I really like the solution on the rear shock setup, I ripped the piggyback reservoir off one of my rear Kings (and very nearly the other as well) on a particularly difficult section of trail on only the second wheeling trip after my suspension install- only three weeks after install. (ended up having to put my stock rear shocks back on and have Carli rebuild my Kings since one was broken off and the other was well on its way to being so) I have actually been running my stock rear shocks since then due to fear of tearing up the Kings again. But now, one of the stock rears is blown so, need to figure out a solution. (I should have a loooooong while (about 56k miles) ago but well... didn't, DOH!!!) I want to run them body up but couldn't come up with a good way of doing so. Your pics have shown me that way though!!!

:cheers:

Morgan, just so you know you can run your rear shocks with the reservoirs over the axle instead of pointed away from the axle. That's how I run my passenger shock. Both shocks have the resi pointed to the rear of the vehicle. Image

Thanks for the pic damagewagon! Unfortunately my shocks are a different design (not as cool) and will not fit in that manner. Kinda hard to tell in this pic but, it's the best I've got.

Thanks ram4rocks! Flipping the shocks isn't all that hard, and it's definitely worth it for those of us that drive by Braille lol.

So you are running limit straps
In the rear eh Tim? I debated running them with mine as well but never ended up doing it. I think my leafs barely allow the travel my shocks can give so I figured eff it. As usual builds looking great! Can't wait to see some action videos etc

Been a while since an update as I've been busy with other things, but finally getting around to doing some maintenance on the wagon. Repacking the front hubs with NEO synthetic HP800 and changing out the grease in my EMF rod ends to use the same redline cv2 as the carli ball joints.

Disassembled each joint and cleaned out old grease, then cleaned and reinstalled everything with fresh redline cv2. Now I can use 1 grease gun for the whole truck. Takes about 5-10 minutes working at an easy pace per rod end. Very well made stuff. Go Canada eh!

Thank you sir!

Changed out my master cylinder today, I was able to "bench bleed" it on the truck with a handy dandy kit I picked up on amazon. Took about 30 minutes to swap it and bleed everything. Pedal feels great now.

Also I don't think I ever posted pics of the swaybar module bracket or steering reservoir so here they are.

Got to do a little to the truck today, finally got around to making the strapt tire carrier lockable and swapped all the different locks on the truck for BOLT locks that are keyed to the trucks ignition key. Got rid of several keys and simplified.

Also swapped out the Baja designs squadrons I've been using for fogs with some new DOT rigid D2 fogs. Going to try them out tonight and see.

Thanks man! It is blasphemy, but it's in the name of science lol. The bd lights are so damn bright I can't use them on the street. These d2's are street legal so I'm wanting to try them around other traffic and see if they won't blind oncoming drivers.

The frame horns are from pattonfab, they tuck in further than anything else I've seen. I had to trim a little of my winch cradle to get it even with his horns. Approach angle is vastly improved from stock.

Cool, let me know how the lights go. I was looking at a set of KC DOT lights until I found out about the Gucci lights the Chris's are coming up with lol.

I was talking with Pat last week, I might get a set of his horns. I did want something thicker and that mounted to the walrus teeth holes too, but I haven't been able to find anything like that.
