    Nice build!! I always really liked the Imperial Jade Mica and never found one close enough, but the Impulse Red Pearl I picked up grew on me... Whats the plan with the rear bumper? Also, what are your current thoughts after switching up the OME's in the rear for Fox Smoothies? I plan to flip u-bolts and weld shocks both to the rear of the axle... thinking of switching up shocks when that happens.

    Thanks man! I love this color! But I like how much stiffer they are than the OME but they are not too stiff at all and feel great with the weight in back. They are a little long for the stock mounts as I bottom out the driver side one too often (I think the driver upper mount is lower than the passenger upper mount) but OME were definitely the limiting factor in my rear suspension and these shocks really helped. Now its a matter of getting them recounted the way I want! And as far as rear bumper, I'm gonna have a guy local to me build me a High Clearance w/swingout/gas can mount etc.

    Ahahah I had always liked your truck since I had my white 04. So i guess I kind of duplicated your truck with minor details of difference here and there. And with all the traveling you Monte and Mike do with your CVT's. I figured that they were just tough and good for the hell I'm gonna put it through lol. That and CVT is badass and has great customer service. And picking up a rear cbi outback 1.0 with swingout... stay tuned for all this summers trip updates and other stuff...:spy:

    If its possible to tuck a high pinion Dana 44 under my truck and stay as low as it is now maybe an inch higher thatd be absolutley perfect, I would be in.

    hahah i think that can be pretty easily done. your steering linkages from the steering wheel to the box will be the hardest thing to do but thanks to things earlier today i measured my frame hight and im sitting at 18.5 inches:eek: damn thats low

    Yeah that's what I thought...would I need high steer with a coilovered solid axle? I wouldn't think as high steer is to move the steering above a leaf sprung setup? And holy shit I'm think my truck is at like 17-17.5 with 33's and ifs lol. That would be an awesome frame height for me and a solid axle...

    My rear isn't meeting idahos standards apparently. Needs to be 4" tall at the rear but I only have 1.5" round tube. Just another excuse to spend money.

    I've had frame plates sitting in my garage for nearly a year now. Need to get them on after I finish my trailer.

    It would be nice. Certainly would start with the bumper sans swing out. Be cool to meet up sometime though, our trucks are now twins. You need more antennas now though to keep up. Satellite radio and ham lol

    Hell yeah man id love to go on adventure like you guys do! And I upgrade to a 3 foot cb antenna over 2 as I couldn't get a good swr but I really want to get HAM certified and run a decent setup. What's the difference between HAM and satellite radio?

    Ham is for communication and satellite is for the tunes!

    Does your 2' have a tunable tip? You should be able to dial it in. I have to run sans the cover though as it interfered with my readings. I'm running a 2' and it works great. Mounted on the hood. You probably need to tune it or get a better coax even, antenna is probably fine
