    I'm done with the rear suspension for a while. Now its time for the front. It's going to be a $1700 investment. So I'm going to wait until I can purchase it all at once.

    When I get to the front, I'm going back and forth between stock piling parts for SAS, or long travel.
    I've got to get new leaf packs for the back first though.

    So here's a few pics of where I put my winch solenoid box. I extended the cables that came installed in the box with 4' battery cables from Advance Auto Parts. The cables already had ring terminals at both ends. They are all black because they were the only ones availabe terminated that way on both ends. I'm probably going to rework a few things with it down the road.

    The box is nestled right behind the air filter box, perfect space. I'm going to be making a bracket so it's solid. The cables are zip tied to the A/C line running below.

    Hit some trails with a bunch of other board members this past weekend. Nothing too crazy. The trails did remind me of how bald my back tires are though, some 285/75-16 Treadwright Guard Dogs should be arriving by the end of the week or beginning of next week.

    Hoping to get my extended shackles and poly bushings installed this weekend.

    So, right before I had to go on a business trip, I installed my extended shackles. Burgman and I took some measurements once it was done. I love the new stance (pics to come). Fortunately, or UN-fortunately, however you look at it, instead of doing sliders before my build-up takes a summer hiatus I need to get longer shocks because my current 5100's are too short by 2 inches. Soooooo, I'm debating between 3 choices. I need 17" compressed, and at least 24" extended.

    Choices are 5125's, Fox 2.0, or Radflo 2.0. Looking a little more at Fox cuz I can get remote resi's from DSM for about $200 a pop which is about the max budget for this need.

    Thanks man !!! At first I wasn't sure I liked the green. Now I love it because it's sort of a rare color, you don't see as many on the road as white, silver, and red.

    Get those parts laying around put on man !!! :cool:

    Sweet !!! Yeah, I hate the idea of running spacers, but I need to get these new tires off the frame when turning, and nobody seems to have problems with them, so I'm excited to see how it looks with the tires kicked out a little.
