    Yeah. I still haven't gone back to look at their response. I got as far as the 2nd sentence (I think) where they said there were no delays. What do you call a job stretching 7 weeks when the owner tells you he hopes to have it done in 2 weeks when you drop it off.

    My thoughts exactly.



    In other news, I've ordered some other things for the truck (electrical, not mechanical). I won't have time to install them until after I get back from visiting family for Christmas, but I'll have 5 days between when I get back and go back to work to make it happen. Hopefully, it won't be too fucking cold. If it is, I can go to the shop at work, but it shouldn't take all that long to install. I just need to tear the dash apart.

    Thanks. I have parts on order from @ARCHIVE to redo the spring perches and u-bolts. His setup runs the u-bolts from the bottom, so it will eliminate the big u-bolt plate that is interfering with the shock mount placement now. I have another shop lined up to do the work. I'm just waiting for the parts to come in to schedule it.

    I went over to @Casper66's house today to modify the @Mobtown Offroad transmission skid to fit my truck. Chris took care of the modifications and welding. He also redid my cmc while I got the skid plate painted.

    Didn't get any pictures of the other side of the skid showing the bracing.

    Stopped for dinner not far from home and inspected the mounts. No signs of rubbing.

    Thanks again.

    Thanks, Caleb. :) The IPOR situation is unfortunate, but it'll all get worked out eventually.

    Haha. Funny you say that. I've thought about starting a build thread but obviously haven't.

    A few updates on things.

    Back on 25 Jan, I heard from the bank that IPOR refused the charge back, so my claim has been escalated up to Visa for further arbitration which could be another 60 days.

    I'm dropping the truck off tomorrow at the store @Fish12South manages to have them start work to fix the stuff wrong with the rear suspension.

    Today, I installed the @KB Voodoo bed rails and tailgate cap. I also reinstalled my Bestop, hi-lift jack, and @At The Helm corner gussets. I left the windows off the Bestop for now because I couldn't get the bar that holds the bottom of the rear window installed. The part of the bed rails that attach to the 2 bolts at the tailgate make the opening too narrow for the bar to fit. I'll need to cut a little off of the bar for it to fit. 3/8" or 1/2" should be plenty to make it work.
