Front diff guard going on. Made from 1/4" to bring the total thickness to 3/8's in the high impact areas. I don't know why that pad looks angled in the picture, it doesn't in person.

Parts for brakes, steering and rear axle are starting to show up. Front suspension is mostly complete.

Rear axle is scheduled to show up today. Just waiting on the orbital valve to show up to be able to finish up the front.

Working on our new DIY front flat fender kit.

Rear axle showed up. I'm pretty impressed with it. About $1200 for the axle, shafts, bearing pockets and seals shipped. Trail-gear had it welded and shipped within 3 days.
Hopefully have it mounted in the Roxor tonight or tomorrow night. Will need to get the wheel bearings bored out for the 35 spline shafts.

What calipers are those bearing pocket brackets for?

Ah, gotcha. I assumed the bearing pockets had the caliper brackets on there specific to what you ordered.

Things to do before Friday in no particular order:

1. Lengthen driveshafts
2. Button up steering hoses and cooler / Fill with fluid
3. Trim Rear fenders
4. Plumb brake lines (fittings should be here today)
5. Assemble rear axle (waiting on breather and drive flanges, should be here tmr)
6. Make engine skid plate
7. Mount rock sliders
8. Mount and wire fog lights
9. Mount and wire rock lights
10. Fill all fluids (Steering, brakes and axles)

Tires are back on to figure out trimming.



Rear calipers mounted. K10 Caliper and pads, rear superduty rotor and superduty wheel bearing are used on all 4 corners.

We had an awesome time at KOH. Got the Roxor "finished" enough to drag it across the country with zero testing.

Other than a few issues, it did great and moved our butts around the desert all week.

Issues:

- Front axle is leaking diff fluid from the passenger. Must have damaged the cheap summit seal when installing the shafts.

- All four tires rub really bad. It was expected though, since I ran out of time for bump stops. Ended up trimming the rear fenders a little more on the lake bed.

- Steering is super slow at low rpm. Going to look into swapping the pulley or the whole pump.

- Mile marker hub on the pass. side kept unlocking for some reason. Will upgrade to chromo outters and flanges.

- Brakes are super soft. Have to look into a booster upgrade.

Still need to finish up the rock sliders and rear corner armor.

Looking into a 1" body lift to allow me to raise the trans and tcase to help with building a flatish belly skid. Also need to get beadlocks as we burped all the air out of one tire on the trail.

Just out of curiosity, why didn't you do a shackle reverse on the front?

Never really had an issue with my other front shackle rigs, so i didn't see the need for it.

Plan is to run it for the season and tear it down for links in the winter sometime.

Waiting on new seals for the front axle and chromo stubs/flanges to show up.

Properly set up front shackle works way better imo. Plus no need for stupid long drive shaft slip.

5.43s with 35 spline spools front and rear. There are a bunch of tunes out there now that pretty much double the power.
