Why are you wheeling in a running stream?:confused:

With permission or not, that seems wrong...
It was a flood... they were running for their lives! Pandemonium... dogs loving cats... the whole terrible tragedy!!! Glad you werent there...

update...got some work done

Cut it in half and started working on it. Hardest part of the bending is done. The splice above the dash was a bitch. compound bend that had to end up on a brace. I slid a piece of 1.5 in the a-pillar hole so the splice would be strong (not real purdy though, got some smoothing to do). I'll be changing the dash and front shocks also. 4-linking the rear with 2.5 airshox, 2.25 lowers with 1.25 heims. Here's progress so far.

Looks good! Now do a monocoil with a 1-link and use the driveshaft as the link like you have in the pic! Save tons of $$$ and make racebronco "angry"

Looks great. But IMO, you really need to re-do the radiator/grille hoop on the front of the rig. The old inverted-U shape doesn't fit the badass cab you're building any more. ;)

Yeah I was seeing that too. I was hoping to hit it with a 12 pound sledge right between the eyes and give it some attitude...But I'll probably just redo it.:D

Little bit done today. tieing into the frame was a bitch but it should work pretty good. put a 2x6x3/16 in the frame rail. That will give me a place for frame style upper link mounts and a 2x4x1/4 x-member between the two that I can mount the lower links to. need to figure out the bracing in the rear to support the airshox fuel cell and radiator. here you go...

looks great, but now u need to fix the front IMO
There is a hood for it. I will put that on there and look at it again and see how it looks. It covers up the bar over the lights. Its a waggy hood so it has a little peak that may work. We'll see...
