    Got the shock hoops and shocks all mounted up. Went wheeling down in Socorro. The shocks make a huge difference, rides so smooth now. The extra gearing is amazing, can basically idle up the trail and have so much more control.

    Steering box plate all welded, got my frame plates cut out and began welding them in. Unfortunately day was cut short because I ran out of welding gas.

    Got the knuckle all back together and began on the steering, frame plates, and shock mounts. Don't mind the angle of the draglink in the first picture, the axle is going to be moved forward another inch or so. I had an axle pin relocation plate that moved the axle back due to the steering...

    More progress, pulled the crawl box apart and sealed it back up. Installed the 4.7 gears in the rear case. I really wanted the Marlin gears but they have been on backorder for some time and was able to grab the TrailGear ones for 20% off so couldn't pass it up. Install went fairly smooth...

    Tube doors are on hold for some other changes. 4.7 Tcase gears showed up and began working on the truck to get those in. Have had a leak at the back of the motor for some time now and decided to pull the Trans to check it out. My first suspicion was valve cover but I have changed it prior. So...

    Video of the carnage... So looking into option 5, picked up a door from junkyard. Researching how to make a swing out cage section and found some tube clevis mounts used for race cages, Just not sure if will hold up to abuse and is kinda $$$ especially when it is going to get beat up. Would...

    Been wanting to make some roof panels for the back cage that is a bit more permanent. Was thinking aluminum sheet, have to weld tabs on, or maybe custom canvas. Anyone have any suggestions/experience, material type, thickness?

    Got some better beadlocks few weeks ago, they were already all welded up and assembled, just needed some new paint. Look to be from DIYbeadlocks, Bullet style and have the anti-coning pieces. These are by far more heavy duty then my old beadlocks. Should hold up to the abuse better.

    Defended my Thesis last Friday, and was a success. Met up with a large group and went wheeling on saturday, ended up snapping the driver side axle shaft. A huge hole formed right before this upward slope rock face such that it is now undercut. The buggy in front of me rolled trying to make it...
