    Whats Good Everyone, I guess its time I put a build page together.
    I have been through these build pages too many times and you all have given me some great inspiration. I have finally figured out where I am going with this and have decided to start documenting it all to watch it come to life.

    My main goal:

    I did notice a more throaty sound out of the trd exhaust, seems slightly louder under acceleration, little more raspy at idle.

    Andrew @JeepAndrew (KeepersMetalFab) built it for me, I did the design and sent him the drawing with the dimensions and worked with him on building it, he did a fabulous job!

    The Batchelor is a little bit larger, I can fit 2 people plus all you gear you ever need, or 2 large dogs. The Cayley is smaller, and when I taped off the square footage on the ground to get a visual of the size, I realized just how much more room that increase in size offeres. I also dont need to over hang for the ladder entrance, in the south west, we don't get a lot of rain.

    Yes sir, still haven't gotten to the shackle flip, waiting on a plasma cutter to get the bitch rivets, so I cant report on performance, yet. Should have em ready for Rock Therapy in May! But here is the list of what you need to get em mounted.

    ProComp eye to stud adapters PN: EXP 690001
    -----Amazon link Here
    Bilstein Reservoir Clamps PN: 11176015
    -----Amazon link Here
    Bilstein 5165 Remote Resi Shocks PN: 25-187717
    -----255 Valving; Travel: 11.3" Ext Length: 27.4"; Collapsed Length: 16.14'
    -----Amazon link Here
    ATO Shackle Flip Here
    Im running AllProExpo Leafs

    I'll post a pic of the shocks later if I can remember to grab one, they are beautiful! Still havent mounted em cuz I wanna get the shackle flip done so I'm not bottoming out the shocks, but its all sitting in a box, in garage, ready to be mounted. @JeepAndrew should be getting a plasma torch real soon and then the game will change!

    Dig that retrofit, hoping to do mine this year

    Sweet, thanks for the info man! I was wondering how you were going to run them with the shock having eyes at both ends. Looking to run expos here soon so I'll be checking in to see how yours look. Sweet build by the way!

    And I highly recommend retrofits, you'll never go stock again!
