Well, I have been in the WEROCK circle for a little while. It was fun and expensive like everything else. Tired of traveling long distances to just wheel for a few minutes. Thought about building up a trail worthy rig with highway roads accessible in mind. Sure I will still use the enclosed trailer to haul for long weekend getaways or small events.

-2002 4L80E, Advanced adapter with VSS

-2002 Ford Superduty F350/F450 HP60 axles shortened
-Unit Bearings (TG)
-Rear Unit Bearing Pockets, Spidertrax
-ARB's, 488's
-17" wheels
-37x12.50x17 MTR Kevlars
-Tundra Brakes.. Secret
-Genright Rear Full Stretch Corners
-Genright Rockers
-Genright 05-06 Fuel tank, higher PSI for LS engine
-1998 Durango Steering Box
-4qty 16" FOA 2.0 remote res Coilovers
-7/8" heims, 1.5" DOM .250 lower links, 1.5 .120 upper links

Waiting on chasis CNC tabs being cut for frame up and driveline/suspensions. 8 hours of auto cadd dimensions and designs off to hypertherm, where my buddy is an engineer. Why not cut useful parts rather than R&D parts that get tossed in the scrap barrel..

I have been lazy lately, buying Genright bolt on parts and making targets. Tired of that stock toyota crap kicking around. Thought I would use some spare axle shafts for small projects. I would rather use spare parts for my own projects than sell them at a slap in the face price from half of the people out there wanting a deal..

Filler neck is from the Genright Rear quarter stretch kit. Relocates the filler so if you wanted to run a stock flare it will work. It's a super thin cheap plastic piece. The one I got that which I stuffed in the hole got crushed in the shipping, have to ask Genright for a new one, better since their crap isn't cheap..

Still waiting on Plasma parts being cut, always that favor that can slow you down. Sometimes full price gets the job done on time..

Ordered a filler tube and Pump lock ring from the dealer for the gas tank, rather cheap. Better deal than used parts on CAR-PART.COM.. Although I did get a used 05-06 fuel pump assembly with 20K miles for 85 bucks.

Wanted the fuel tank all set up so I can stuff under neath and make the frame around and incorporate the coilovers..

85-87" Outside of tire to outside of tire. Have a few sets of MTR's, one set on 4.5 BS and once set on 2.5" BS SO the 2.5" will be 91" Outside tire dims
