Also went to 37" irok bias ply

Then after a few trips to the hammers I realized narrower is better so the dove tail began. I really didn't have a clue what I was doing just that it needed to be shorter and narrower.

No for the way it is currently sitting

I cut off the front clip and rebuilt the top/front end of the 22re.
cut out all of the front suspension and stripped the axle.
gutted the interior and updated the mounts for the izuzu amigo rear seat that happens to fit perfectly between the rear fender wells.
started scraping of the factory insulation on the floor to be bedlined.

So did the taxes over the weekend. Being our 1st time filing as a married couple wasn't sure how we would make out. Well we did pretty good so the wife being so tired of looking at a pile of dented sheet metal where a truck used to stand has given me permission to spend the return. so within a few weeks we should have a TG 3link and hydro steer set-up in the garage. now just to wait for the return to come through.

I have read through your build and your truck is awesome. :Thumb: :Thumb:

Looking Forward to getting out wheeling hopefully get to meet some of you guys at the Meet and Greet

I am planning to cut the frame off in front of the motor mounts also.

well haven't gotten much done since last time but started rebuilding my stock locking hubs
Have at least one primed then painted
Image
Image
I am going to be going over the letters with a White paint marker.
Then I bought this color for the center dial of the hub

i assume you live in bakersfield. if it was mentioned in the first post, i didn't notice.

the meet & greet is a good start. this is (in MY opinion) a unique club. we have minimal
rules, but mutual respect for others, for our sport, and the land we play on.

we are all waiting impatiently to wheel with you :Thumb:

After some thought and reading I measured my frame height out right now at 26" s under the doors new goal to bring it down under 24"s with my 37" Iroks

Plan for that french the rear spring hangers and move the rear shackle mount from under the frame to in the frame like the stock front ones would be.

Then set the air shocks and links up front to match.

Was watching the KOH stream yesterday and watched a guy qualify in a truck similar to yours. Still on leaf springs with stock drive train and I think they said he was running a carb instead of injection.

Those hubs turned out nice man.

The skid plate for the tank is all smashed up so i will be building a better one before i put it all back together.

Then I got to playing around with my CAD programs and just made a rough idea for the hangers. Going to have to change it after getting the tank out and looking at the frame better but oh well.
