    thanks guys. its coming along really slow as this whole time so far ive been building with a broken leg in a cast on crutches.... so im moving a bit slower than the normal well abled human being hahahaha. ill keep this updated as i can but we are looking at a month of almost no updates as i head in for surgery on thursday. should be back to fabbing on the truck within a month or so i hope.

    thanks again for all the kind remarks! any of you in SD want to learn some time feel free to pm me. you come wanting to help, ill supply the brews.

    ^^^ thats the way i look at it man... i welded some off road castors to my little shop stool so i can roll around in the dirt and do my thing while seated as much as possible. hahaha.

    as far as a timeline for when im hoping to be done, i would like to have it together and out for testing by early december so i can tune shocks and get everything set for christmas weekend in the desert.

    well got the upper rear link 100% completed. started the jig for my new lower arms, was nice to at least get that started. only reason i couldnt at least get one lower built and tacked together today was my pile of shit step bits couldnt drill out the tabs to 5/8. went and bought another step bit, its more dull than my old one. wtf is that about?! ill get pics posted once i get the lowers off, painted, and uppers and lowers back on.
