    Just stumbled onto your build thread. I met you at Takeover in 09. Good looking mods so far!

    So I got off work a bit early today and got my Moog ball joints and Toyota bushings pressed into my LCAs. One more thing off the list....

    I also got my BAMF LCA skids painted and ready for install.

    Oh, and I ordered motor mount gussets, UCA double shear kit, and hopefully plates for boxing the frame from Solo Motorsports.:spy:

    Ordered 4 MTRs and a 4.56 third from ECGS today. Also talked to Solo Motorsports, and they should be shipping my UCA double shear kit, motor mount gussets, and frame plates tomorrow.:goingcrazy:

    This came in today as well. Not really truck related, but I'm still pretty pumped about it.

    Me too!
    The truck is coming apart this weekend, and in about two weeks all the parts under the "Moab list" should be installed. The only bad thing about doing everything at one time is that if I have an issue, I'll have so many places to check!

    I wish I could do Moab this year. Actually showed the wife some pics of it and mentioned going out there, thinking she'd laugh at me. She actually said we should plan it :eek:

    But it would have to be next year, since all my vacations are planned for this year already :(

    Gives me time to get the crawler on at least :D

    Got the TC cam tab gussets welded in. These things are a pain to weld in for a novice such as myself. In other words, it ain't pretty, but it'll work.

    I also got the spindle gussets welded up and started working on my rear brakes... Should finish that up in the morning and start on a few other things. :spy:

    Done? I'm not sure I'll ever be done haha. But, at least the 305s are on and it's rolling down the road again. I didn't have much time to take pics and I ran over my phone at some point during the process, so no pics right now.:(

    I see you have your 305s on as well. I'm curious to see if you run into any fender clearance issues down the road. I went ahead and cut 2.5" out of mine in anticipation of the next tire size.:spy:

    moving up again i see :spy:


    yea i'm waiting for the next warm sunday so i can get under there and see where i need to clearance more...so far driving around i have not heard any rubbing...but my pinch weld is flat, cab mounts chopped. fenders already trimmed near the firewall and my arb cut for clearance..

    i'm sure i'll end up trimming more of the flares and i need to setup something to keep my brake lines out of the way of my tires (rope or zip ties)..
