im gonna buy a bunch of tubing and go to town on it before i get coilovers and bumps, that way i have a good place to mount and attach everything.

money tight this month so im kinda keeping it chill. me and the woman are going to coachella next month so iv got to save, so there will be a little lack of updates for a bit.

and for the cv no it doesnt exceed it, in the pics if you were to let the axle sit on the plywood it still has room to go more. but it also helps because my little stub driveline is angling down from the t case so you have to add probably an existing 10* from how the flange sits to the 30* cv. thats why its able to travel so far with such a short driveline.

also all my led stuff to build a custom light bar came in the mail, been messing around with stuff. testing. blowing shit up. seems like i have it all worked out and i think its all gonna work out as planned. ill wait till im done making a final product to do a good write and link sources. hopefully if it all works out people will be able to have a step by step on how to make their own light bar thats hopefully as planned comparable to a 1000$ light bar but only have to spend 150$ in parts. also thinking about doing some custom rock lights with the same setup. could potentially be the brightest rock lights out there. im not looking to make/sell stuff like this. just more of a fun build it yourself and save a decent amount of money kinda deal.

Interested to see what you do with the light bar/ rock lights. Sounds like it could be a great idea

Hey, how are you extending the fuel pressure line?

just by adding new fuel line hose, just took the old stuff out and replaces it with new longer line, previous pics a few pages back should show everything pretty clearly, all the lines still over length right now till i get the tank permanently mounted, then ill trim the extra dangling line and clean everything up.. held with double c-clamps. 1 high pressure line, the return, and 2 evap lines. really easy. specially since on my model of truck they ran the stock hard line under the cab instead of on the frame. and the hard line stops right at the back of the cab so that's where you slip on your new lines.

you only need fuel injection line for the high pressure from the pump. (pricey stuff like over 10$ a foot)

the rest (return and evap) can just be regular low pressure carburetor line to save money.

i know its not much as far as fab work but i completed one the light bars iv been experimenting with for the past few months. got everything figured out, im gonna run at least 2 of them. maybe 3 depending... this ones not completely done i still have to seal it so its water tight but im not gonna bother with that yet. these are CREE Xm-L high powered 1000 lumen 10watt leds running slightly under 3 amps per led. they are neutral white 4500k light spectrum, looks exactly like daylight. from that i know this is one of the best leds on the market right now. they have the highest percentage of lumen output to power consumption. with this aluminum extrusion im maxed out at 5 leds per bar. im rough estimating the lumen output at 4700 lumens a bar (since there not being powered to 100% and after you subtract the loss of lumens from the optic lenses). cost around 150$ in parts. i may do a DIY light bar write up... but from what i found out this was more difficult to make than i expected. its not mentally hard but the finesse workmanship was pretty intense. everything is so crammed tight, so small, and delicate. its got 3 modes, high..low..and strobe. don't care for the strobe since it literally would give someone a seizure, but the drivers im using to run the leds have that mode so it is what it is. they will be on top of the cab. looks goofy right now since there no tubing there yet but they will look good once there's other stuff in place. each bar is pretty small, 7" long 2.5" deep and 3" tall. ill try and snap some pictures tonight of the light bar in action.. but from my experience the camera doesn't really take a realistic picture. just for reference from what i can see is was probably 3 times bright than the high beams on my car.

as for future progress im gonna start everything else really soon. just got a big end of the season bonus from work so im buying wheels and tires as soon as i can finally find what im looking in the area. then its just tubing and coilovers/bumps and im ready to rock.

the camera doesnt take pictures worth a shit in this kind of scenario but this is the best comparison i can come up with through a picture. the brightness in both pictures is actually less than what they are in real life because the camera focuses only on the hot spots. in reality the light bar lights up the trees in the background also but the camera wont pick it up. the other pic is of the high beams on my car, which are actually really good for my little p.o.s. probably about 3 times brighter, than whats on my car. plus the leds are a way better color spectrum.




im using 17* optical lenses for the leds. one thing that these xm-l's are known for its having a really massive hot spot but also still have a decent amount of flood light. so it works out perfect. theres a really good focused center where you have it pointed but it still floods out and light up most everything else around it.

the camera im using for this whole thread is a panasonic lumix dmc-zs3. best camera iv ever used. its about as good of a point and shoot as you can get before you get into a real camera. and the one im using is old. probably like 3 years old. their new one they have out is better.

finally had enough money to buy wheels and tires. got a set of old school 40" mtrs, 6 total tires. 4 at 95% tread and 2 at 45% tread. also got 5 allied monster beadlocks. that way i can have a real spare. really stoked on how it all looks. wider than i thought though. i like the wide look and for stability on the trail... the the chp's are gonna hate me though. 4" backspacing 9.5" wide. since the back is still on jack stands the weight pivot point is all weird. so once the backs done the front should drop back down atleast 3/4". even though i actually like the height right now. frame is at 25.5". the night shots with the fender cut make it look big but its really not.
