Yes I've made progress, I just haven't posted in a while.

The fire wall, dash, pedals and floor are in, the motor and drive train is in, seat mounts are in, gas tank mount is in, I need to build shock mounts and hood bars, wire, plumb...and all the small stuff.

I'm going to take a week off this fall to try to wrap it up. Its been too hot to work on it this summer.

I just finished the Front Axle :D The axle in the above pic was just a stock roller.

TG Lg. Armor, Fully Trussed, FROR Gussets, 30 Spline Longfields, TG Magnum Studs, TG High Steer, TG Hydro Asst, ARP Hub Studs, IFS Hubs with Longfield Chromo Gears, FROR Taco Brake Brackets, 2000 Taco Brakes, E-Locker with Cryo'd 5.71's set up by Zuk, Inchworm E-Locker Guard, as well as New Bearings and Seals.

I think its fairly well built! :flipoff2:

It's alive!

After 5 years of starting and stopping this build, I wheeled it for the first time today. :D

It performed very well, now I just have to learn how to drive it!

Congratulations!
Thanks Man. I was pumped when I got it running about 6 months ago, that was a huge milestone. I was excited to get it moving on its own about 2 months ago. But wheeling it for the first time was priceless :D

I had a few shake down issues, like the TG power steering pump pulley fell off, fuel kept spilling out the vent when on an incline and the T-Case got real hot because the fluid was low relative to the angle the drive train sits at in the chassis.

I can solve all of these issues...then I'll wheel the piss out of it!

I still have a few issues to sort out before I go too far from home. Pm me your number, I could use some help with something.

5 years is a long time to wait! That makes for a sweet payoff though! Congrats!
