    Still have a few more parts that need some welding but for the most part it's in. After that I need to plate the corners and a few other areas. Also got the orb of traction done

    This is with weight on the springs, these things have a stupid amount of droop. Shackle angle appears to be good, which is good cause that shit is burned in already.

    Shot from the back, so nice seeing an axle under this bitch again. Now just need to set pinion angle and make sure it's centered and burn in the perches.

    Still not sure where to put it yet. Also not sure if I should weld it in place or bolt it.

    or this
    [​IMG]
    For battery placement. Still not sure, did start making a dash template. Need to get some sheet metal to make it out of and make a template for the top as well.

    Thanks man, I just sold the boggers I had. On the hunt for some 42-44s. Picking new/different leaves for upfront, decided to run slider boxes instead of shackles. Should order those here soon.

    Had to turn them down a lil bit on a lathe the fit the hole they needed to but they fit like a glove now. Slider boxes will be here today so the front will start to get mocked up in the next two weeks. Been thinking about putting this on the back burner and doing some body armor for the Tacoma so I can wheel it at Moab next year and a few places this year.

    Started working on mocking up the front. Waiting on my ps u bolt plate. Still haven't decided whether I'm gonna french in the slider boxes or not. Looks like its going to sit low enough as is.
