    Getting the bed off was a real pain in the ass. Ended up having a coworker swing by with the bucket truck to lift it off.

    I also pulled the 3rd member to send to ecgs to replace an air seal. That ultra grey rtv was really holding it tight.

    Got the new tank in today. Poured 3 gallons into it and let the truck run for a little while. All seems good so far. Going to double check all the connections and bolts tomorrow and then put the bed back on.

    Sucks only being able to work on it before work at 3:00.. work always ruins everything.. :p

    Had a bolt break while trying to remove the old tank. Rear driver side strap bolt. Had to cut the box open and remove the bolt with vise grips, then welded the box back together.

    Ok so the tank is in and it has officially been filled. No burping issues. Took 29.6 gallons.

    Rear diff took longer than expected to get back home, but it’s reinstalled (honestly haven’t tested the locker to see if it’s holding air now).

    My old fox 2.0 remote resi shocks are back from down south motor sports. I saved $100 compared to buying new ones, between shipping and rebuild and replacing a shaft. I taped them off and hit them with a nice coat of fresh black paint. Can’t even tell how corroded they were lol!

    Plan for tomorrow is to mount the shocks and weld on the ruff stuff resi mounts.

    Ive also been working on a 4x innovations latch for my swingout. There was no way to use it the way it came, but after some modifications, it’s getting there.

    Thanks. My CBI rear bumper has a big hand screw to hold the swing out closed. I’ve never been a fan of it, so now 6 years after buying the bumper, I’m finally doing something about it.

    I swapped out my rear shocks today and welded on the ruff stuff resi mounts. Didn’t take any pictures during the process, but here is the finished product. ED14F767-363E-4170-A861-9822AC7FF32D.jpg

    I’ve always thought they looked a lot more professional than the clamps and self tapping screws that came with my shocks originally. For anyone that can weld halfway decently, I think they’re great.

    I was planning on waiting till I get my go fast camper, then weigh the truck and get custom deaver leaf springs. But, after thinking about it, and seeing just how shitty my all pro expos are holding up, I decided to order deaver stage 3 leaf packs yesterday from headstrong Offroad. They’re designed for an additional 700-1000 lbs in the bed.
    My weights are: (approx)
    300 lbs- CBI rear bumper (according to their website) and I’m thinking the spare tire weighs about what the stock spare, hitch, and bumper weighed so they cancel out.
    100lbs- tools and spare parts

    So I’m obviously way underweight right now, but soon I’ll have:

    250 lbs- Go Fast Camper

    So that puts me close to the low end on the stage 3 leaf packs, plus on trips I’ll have the arb fridge, yeti cooler full of beer, cooking and camping gear, so maybe another 150 lbs?

    I’m also really interested in a drawer system, but don’t want to build my own and have to worry about plywood getting wet, so I’m looking at the decked drawers, which according to their website, weigh 230 lbs.

    With all of that I might have a hard time staying under the 1000 lbs max for those leaf springs.

    I like the idea of drawers for storage and a flat deck on top. I’m just worried about the weight.

    Same here... specially because I want to eventually put the fridge in the back and it most likely not work with the lower profile rtt/bed rack I have.

    Yea I’m not thrilled about needing a $450 fridge slide with tilt to be able to see in the fridge.

    Actually when I googled the rack, there are no shocks even involved. They just have a pin lock that allows the front to pivot down. It would be very easy to make your own. Maybe @Nimble9 can add to list of products for us east coast folks :)

    I like the ones that slide then drop keeping the fridge still leveled.... but not happy on any of the prices I've seen
