Scored a complete 2004 SD60 from pick n pull on half off day yesterday. This will make a nice front end for me, and it was very cheap. One step closer to my truck bed build.

If you are a toolkit member, there is an email list for it. Also, they post it on Reno 4x4. Some holidays are always half off, like 4th of July.

Uh huh. Hopefully. And gears the matching rear from the same truck! All complete. All in good working condition. Even the brake pads appear to be full of life. I officially have a set of tons baby!

Got to finally do some wheeling. The LS and the PBRs performed beautifully.

Havenít been up to much on the jeep. We are, however, planning a Rubicon trip in a couple weekends. Itís gonna be lit.

I decided to go with a 15 cubic foot rooftop bag for this trip and from now on. That way I can get all my soft light stuff up high and keep all my heavy pokey stuff in the tub. I will also be relocating my cooler and gas can from above the spare tire to the tub. Iíll still have the cooler rack as an option, but the cooler, gas, heavy spare and my swing out tools are overloading my swingout. The spindle is fine, but bumper itself is trying to pull off my frame when I get to bouncing. I could fix it but imma do a stinger style soon anyway.

To mount the bag on my roll bar. Iím going to weld loops to the inside of the top hoop of the cage. Then weave a 30í x 2Ē wide ratchet strap through the loops to for a hammock. Iíll tighten the strap, and the bag can sit on top of the strap and secure to the cage.

Here are the loops I started making tonight. Some need extra trimming, but itís a good start.

Well my babysitter fell through, so we took the whole family in two cars to slick rock. The wife and youngest camped while me and the oldest went crawling with my buddy and his wife. It was epic. Slick rock is way harder with the reroute and itís so much more fun. All we took was video basically, so Iíll have to link some later.

I really quickly made an oil pan skid plate since Iím running a truck LS Pan. Good thing I did it. I hit that skid once pretty decent.

Edit: tried to post pics and it wasnít working. Lame

Hereís what I did with the metal loops I showed earlier. This will be a solid platform for my rooftop bag.

I have two major things to fix before the Con in a few weeks.

I keep dropping my driveline, and itís getting pretty beat up. Iím going to buy the super long travel woody. The driveline snaps upward and binds when it pulls out, then it grinds the splines together. I had to file the goobers off the shaft to shove it back in. Time to fix that.

I also had some jacked up noises during severe breaking. Found the source. Need to fix that for sure.

Felt like a real fabricator after this fix. Cut out the portions of my girdle that contacted the driveline. Then played the hole.

I got sick of dealing with the baby sitter plans falling through for my Rubicon trip this summer, so I sold my truck and bought a family crawler. The super duty axles will go to this build. I will start a thread on the dodge forum in pirate. Itíll be called the ďDreadnoughtĒ

Itís been difficult to post here with the newer size restrictions on photos, so I apologize for not posting as much. I use my phone almost exclusively when it come to forums, and resizing pictures isnít easy.

Anyway, hereís a couple quick vids from the Rubicon trail last weekend.

Since posting pics on this site has become much more difficult, Iíll just have to leave you with video links.
