Although I'm not a fan of the turds, I do love seeing Exploders airborn.

so what is the reasoning behind posting it in the ford section under pics of your rig?

nice rig, but seriously?

You pretty much nailed it The sliders are getting cut off and redone. Original plan was to work them into a step also for a roof rack, but that was before chopped the top.

The bumper I don't mind so much, but would rather a plate bumper with winch mount. The steering is a concern, but not high on the list of things when the rear still needs locked. The body lift stays easier to work on my shit.

Central Point, yeah, but I work and go to college in Medford. As for cutting the fenders, did you not look at the front? They are cut way the hell out I need to do a bit of trimming on the rears though.

Also, to flip my steering to on top of the knuckle I have to re-ream the holes right, its not just a flip and bolt it thing?

Ruff stuff makes inserts -> http://www.ruffstuffspecialties.com/.../INSSTEER.html and a kit http://www.ruffstuffspecialties.com/catalog/YLINK.html which is the avenue i will be taking on the rebuild of the front axle on my truck.



Mines flipped and I have bent mine. I'm not the worse driver on the planet, just can't see shit sometimes. I also drive VERY slow. I'd make them a little higher on the list.

How are the sliders welded on the frame? With as far as they stick out and as close to the body as they are, they look like they would cause more damage than protect.

The lower part of the bumper isn't bad, just the triangle on top is. Lose the triangle, cut a section out of the center, add a universal winch plate, and call it good until you can afford the plate bumper one you want.

From what I have seen and read, you drill a 7/8" hole all the way through. Insert the sleeve, insert the tie rod end, and bolt the other side down. I will talk to Dan before doing it though just to make sure I am using them correctly.
