    I got the first post up but I REALLY need to update that thing! I'm posting different pictures in each so there'll be a li'l something for everybody.

    I have an upgraded steering kit that I'm installing during Thanksgiving weekend. Shortly after that I'll get my fuel cell back from FuelSafe and then I can start in with the next round of suspension mods. :p

    I have a feeling that the money you are investing in your truck is probably a better investment than the stock market. Are you accepting sponsors?

    It's a great place to knock around break stuff. I smashed the hell out of my driveshaft armor! I hope to get out there one more time before I change around my suspension again.

    To answer questions in another thread, I built what I knew and it's a rock crawler. :eek: The rear is going to be modified for the desert but that will put the leaf springs more in the way of rocks. I'd like to bounce off some low-speed obstacles and enjoy the current setup before I go and change everything all over again. :rolleyes:

    Tough to say. It was rolled in with the rest of the fabrication work I had done on the truck. It's definitely more than an ARB or any of the other off-the-shelf bumpers out there. I just really wanted something unique on the front of my truck.

    You might have some luck contacting Total Chaos and asking them for an estimate for a bumper similar to what they built for their 5-lugger:
    [​IMG]

    Their bumper is far lighter than mine and incorporates a 1-piece aluminum skidplate. I had Carroll's build my bumper and skidplate to flow into BudBuilt's steel underbelly skidplates.
