    Is your shitbox on 37s rolling yet @Tacofire98 ??

    When's the Chinaman's shakedown run happening?

    It is! I drove it to the new place over the weekend. Has some small things to wrap up, need to get the wiring for the lockers done. It's scheduled for an alignment on Friday.
    Hows the end of the month looking for ya?

    Here's proof it's actually getting done! I have about 250 on the new gears, just need to wire up the lockers and find a different airbox setup

    I'm pretty sold on giving it go now with the crawlbox. But it intimidates me every time I roll up to it.

    There's bigger holes everywhere now. It's tore up like every other trail.

    Looking sweet!


    Your new bike in yet too? Chinaman's one day and a ride the next if we can find a warm-ish weekend.

    It was supposed to deliver last Thursday, but signature required. I'll try to pick it up Monday or Tuesday. I was really hoping to rude it this weekend.

    You need some carbon fiber in your life!

    Won't fit. I already cleared the corner of mine a touch, and it still rubs.

    Although now I'm wondering if you can raise it an inch, or if that would cause a bunch of other issues. A cold water (air) intake would be easier for sure.

    I already have a 1" body lift. I don't think it will be enough. I'm thinking a cone and then fab up a small box that stays tight to it. To try and avoid a "water" intake.
    I need to play around with it and see how reasonable it is to route it up to the cowl through the fender

    Hopefully no one's expecting updates on my shitbox in here lately. :rofl:

    Hmm, I wanted to make it back to Sedona this winter, so maybe I need to do both. :D

    Unsure how up to date your first page is...what leaf springs are you running now? Still J59's? Bastard pack? My OME's from 2015 look like a W when loaded now...

    They're J59s. Also added some 1/2" lift shackles this year. They work well for how the truck is set up currently.

    If you have any amount of weight, I would just call Alcan and have them make you a custom pack. Be prepared to spend close to a grand though!

    Ive weighed my options quite a bit. I am not willing to spend that much on leaf springs alone. I dug around some and will most likely run 63's frenched. I thought about alcans but i want to maintain or increase articulation at the wheel. Id rather fab a little and move shock mounts than settle for less articulation. A lot of options to bastardize the 63 leaf packs as well.

    Also, how has the eco-crawler been? Issues or bugs? I will probably end up with that before I even regear with these 35s...:anonymous:
