Great looking build, do you plan on putting tin underneath your seats seems like you would get a lot of dirt and heat coming up.

No. The plan is to keep it open under there for better air flow and easier access.

Hey, Tim the rides looking good. If your bored one night you'll have to swing by Scott's place and check out the 4runner. Or check the FMF build in the tacoma section.

Which rear steer valve is that? Mine has the ports going down and I don't have any room for bigger fittings.

It's Howe's rear steer valve.

Are you using Howe's steering pump? If so would you mind reporting back how it performs with the front & rear steer?

Pretty sure Tim has the Howe pump as well. Saw it in the shop the other night and the guys used the rear steer to roll it and holy crap the rear steer is fast!

Definitely seems like a good system.

Good to know I have the exact same system with only an 8" ram in the rear with a 9.2 orbital & was concerned the pump wouldnt be up to snuff.

Running the first annual Crawl Lottery at the 30th annual Dakota Territory Challenge. What a blast! The rig worked GREAT thanks to Jason and Nate at Twisted Customs.
