made this sweet roller set up and got the links all welded up and they even got a coat of bro white paint





got the frame mount burned in, sucked trying to weld as couldnt get my head in there with the helmet on or the torch in some spots nicely



he was also able to re use the tcase skid plate buy moving it back and redrilling some holes. its a nice smooth transition from the crossmember to it and slopped up so should work out real well

Are you at all worried about your link wollering out the these holes? Maybe it's just the angle of the picture but there doesn't seem to be much meat between the holes.

If the bolts stay tight it should never be an issue.

as long as the bolts are tight i dont see an issue at all, plus running a hard washer on both sides of the bolt

thanks man, he worked on it the other night and got a set of ebay F150 headers to fit and lucked out and only broke 1 stud. he figured now was the best time to do it before we stick coil overs and tube work in the way of getting in there

ebay headers for a F150 that he made work on the Superduty. he said he had to beat one tube a bit to clear the motor mount and fill the egr tube plug but other wide no issues and looks like the stock Y pipe will work as well. might make a new one anyways as the stock one has way to many bends and goes all over the place for some stupid reason



he was working on getting the coil over mounts figured out last night. looks like there will be enough clearance between the frame and the coil when the diff swings. the driver side is real close to the master cylinder, like cant have more then 2 threads sticking out the nut to clear close

he finished up the coil over mounts and even braced the back side of them to the frame. coil over gets close to the frame at full drop but can still get a pinky finger behind them. over the motor brace is in too and clears the intake and everything else as well







got the truck off the stands and looks like i guessed right on coils as sits pretty level with 1 inch of preload on the coil overs



front bumper back on and looks like just need a small trim to clear the tires now that the front diff is 3" forward



and i had a few mins so cut some tube for the exo so could start figuring out the rest

so hes been hard at it and got lots done, all new brake lines and fuel lines. built a new exhaust as well and it changed the sound of it for sure, he likes it but im giving him a hard time as doesnt sound like the welfare anymore







with a bolt check and a once over he was able to back it out of the shop and go for a drive around the block before the holidays and seems like everything is good to go and working like it should. so then he got started on the cage. working on this truck just sucks as it was in an accident so nothing is straight so have to do everything by eye as the cab is not on the frame straight and the frame is not straight. the one side of the truck is an easy 1/2 inch or more off from the other side. so makes doing tube work fun as cant just make both side the same. he got most of the cab cage done and welded up, went a little crazy on the roof and also just pushed the sheet metal down to make it fit and same with the cab

This build makes me want to find a cheap crew cab V10. How awesome is it when the stock drivetrain is already decent enough to not have to replace everything right away.

when he told me thats what he wanted i hated it but we did it anyways and now that its done i dont mind it. does look a little weird as the bends dont match as the one on the cab is higher so looks a little off but hes talking about plating them together so think it will hide it a bit.

did get the cage finished up other then needed to add some gussets but can do that at a later date

fender bars



window bar, had some issues with this one as had to make some hard choices on it as with how we built it the hood will not open so its now pinned on. only way to do it so the hood would open and clear the wipers was to make it really tall and ugly looking.





trimmed fenders to fit over the tubes

with the cage done and every thing else done enough we went out yesterday for a test run. truck worked well and only have a few small issues to deal with the 3link. few small clearance issues like the ram just touches the diff cover, trac bar on the diff touched the cross member. truck had the cel light come on and he checked them once home and nothing major and easy fixes as well.

pics











on the way back he said the truck was feeling sluggish and we stopped to take a brake and he noticed the pass front tire was flat. he hit something and bent the rim so swapped his spare on and carried on



just before we got home he heard a loud bang and then said the front end was making noise and could feel something not right in the front end. we where about 10mins from home so just carried on. once home he went and washed all the snow off the truck then we found the carnage. short side axle tube pulled out of the center. twisted up the truss and cracked the center section where the plug welds are.



can see the truss is twisted right where it starts to go up over the center section



so he left late last night and did a 6 hour drive to our buddys shop and picked up another diff. so we have about 8 days to get it all swapped and back together in time to leave for Insanity Fab

Was the bent rim on the same side as the broke housing? Seems like it took a hard hit or was broke beforehand.

rim was on the pass side and its the drivers side that pulled out. when doing the JK truss on the diff they tell you to cut the cast back and think thats what did it. with the truss ment for coils its pretty much just flap plate over the pumpkin and on the short side so really doesnt add much strength. plan for the new diff is to not cut the cast and do the truss right out to the knuckles as dont need the coil bucket flat spots. buddy said he will cut one out on the table for us so hope we can get it all done in time

I didn't see the cast cut back, makes sense now.

God damn, well that's going to be a fun 8-day thrash-fest, but I'm sure you guys will get it done. Godspeed.

Truck is looking awesome and the wheeling pics look great. At least you figured out the pretty big issue on the shakedown!
