here are your updates. It's gonna be a long weekend keeping in mind that the truck must be submitted saturday. It obviously won't be finished, but as of five minutes ago, the truck is running. It's always a little scary to try to start a vehicle after its been down for a few months. The only code lights are the four low and abs. The truck is now sitting on all fours.

The alcans got here just in time.





Fox 2.0's got here. They're nice. One thing that kinda chaps me is the fact that I've spent who knows how much money, and every company I've ordered from has barely even sent a sticker. In fact, the only ones that have have been in the ARB and Fox boxes. Guess they don't like advertisement. Oh, that's my shock sitting on my HDPE.



My 3/16 plate sliders. They will have to be trimmed, but it was pretty amazing thinking that they are 3/16 thick and eight feet long. Takes some pressure to bend them.

went to leafs for stability. They are eight leaf packs and flex very well. Have a similiar set on a scout. They are very impressive. Will be carrying quite a bit of gear and a full size spare. This is still a semi daily driver. Figure that if I'm not happy with them, I will put ori's in the rear and four link it. We will see. Deaver makes a great product. Speed? I've got speedy rides for that. A turbo or supercharger would be nice, but I'm out of money. Working two jobs now. I can't add a third. I'm sure this truck will see a little air. I stress a little.

Trucks looking better & better, really like how clean the Ram Guard/platform is!

Been debating doing a SUA for some of the same reasons as you and the added speed ability but was always worried about the loss of clearance & hitting/breaking leafs but this truck will obviously see worse places then mine ever will so I'll be waiting to see how it does which will probably make a deciding factor

rolled her out for a little fresh air. sitting low in back as we are building shackes for the rear springs. Will incorporate d-rings into the shackles. Will weld on shocks later and start on sliders. Will be an all-nighter.

The tale of the tape. Pictures were taken. Due to delays, the truck was not finished. According to Pewe, that's alright. They need to see what it is. I hope this is enough to get the nod. Due to the lack of drivelines, we had to improvise and flex the truck out at the local grocery store's pharmacy drivethrough. We pulled it up with another truck. It was slightly sad to have to pull the truck, but the truck flexed great right out of the box. In flexed shots, there was only 9 inches of strut shaft showing. Still five more downward inches. The compressed passenger side could go up another two inches. The rear Alcan's flex great. The passenger rear tire is not picked up in the air to being bottomed out. It was against the wall and the driver tire was binding up on the bumper. As to aid in getting it down, we didn't go up any further. The tasks of things yet to do. Please keep your fingers crossed for us to get in as we have put a tremendous amount of work into the build. We will continue with updates.
1. minor trim work to fenders.
2. Mount the winches.
3. Mount the storage box and powertank.
4. Plumb rear breaks.
5. Drivelines front and rear.
6. Paint the fenders.
7. Finish the cage.
8. Plumb the ARB's.
9. Trim and box the bumpers
10. build shackles (the ones in the pics are temporary)

The rear upper shackle mount serves dual purpose as the d-ring mount. That is one inch plate. It is welded to the bumper which is mounted to the frame. The frame was boxed, reinforced, and reinforced some more as not to fail. shackles are temporary.

This will be daily driven alot. I'm not saying every single day as those tires are expensive, but i will drive it alot. There's nothing that says it's not street legal besides the beadlocks. The full hydro takes a little time to get use to, but I don't feel it will be that big of an issue. As for the rear spring under, we did that to minimalize spring wrap from the flexy springs and increased torque of the dual cases.

Truck looks awesome. Do you own or work at a little 4x4 shop near McGee Creek. The building in the Background looks Familiar. I think I stopped in there a couple of years ago looking for directions to Potapo[SP?] campground.....Sorry for the highjack.

The front end doesn't look like it is doing much. I am guessing the shocks still need to be tuned.

yep, I mentioned that above. The driver side strut still had a good five inches to go down and the passenger had two to go up. Everything is still pretty stiff. It will take a little break in time to get her where she needs to be. Pics were posers only.

Joe's shop is in atoka, OK about 45 minutes from McGee creek lake.
