    before i do my body bushing this weekend, i should update my latest mods/fixes

    IMG_1736.jpg

    new OEM (fuggin $460) cv because that lil piece of metal sticking out is a bad thing :facepalm:


    IMG_1740.jpg

    TC sway bar gusseted spindles thanks to baddass @Bentrodder

    4 new coopers because my spares were bad but rolling and i blew the front two getting home from destroying my cam tabs....

    CFA689C8-E505-46B2-9C8C-67D81B999C36.jpg

    new TC cam tabs (they forgot new bolts so i get those next week with a new alignment after the body bushings and hopefully the removal of some driver side preload)


    thats $3300 worth of damage from an amazing Death Valley trip. would totally pay $3300 to do it again :der:

    you can get a oem replacement for about $140 or so. But those only last me about a month so I gotta pay for the real thing. I still need to pull this one apart to see if I can repair it somehow, sounds like this weekend will be a lot of messy black gloves on the kitchen counter

    Nice build. I didn't get your statement about the box in the back seat. Care to elaborate?

    I pulled the seats out
    put a floor in
    built a box that is separated in the center with two doors, one for each door access.
    put up a back rest and attachments to secure the dog
    carpeted the exterior so it could be shampooed
    I use the driver side for my clothes and shoes and medical kit
    passenger side for extra shit but it could be used as another clothing and shoe compartment
    my clothes always stay fresh and dry instead of having seats there or folded down taking up space

    So, all that being said. If you are running duffel bags in the bed, at some point your clothes will get wet, at some point your passengers clothes will get wet. So if you dont want to have to build a rear seat delete box, dont let them look at my trucks back seat as they are trying to dry their clothes in the cab with the heater.

    :cheers:

    deaver had them made and then shipped them to me.

    Fully loaded I found a CAT scale and got my front and rear axle weights. Then send them these numbers and my usage and lift needs.
