Transfer case cover finished with the integrated seat mounts.

I found a set of the liquid sounds shallow mount speaker pods with a set of Kicker 6.5" coax speakers.

Most importantly I started mocking up my Fox 14" coilovers. I had to cut off the shock hoops, move them forward about 2.5" and kick them back about 10 degrees. The lower shock mounts are from Artec and integrate to the lower link mounts. The upper shock hoop mounts are from Wide Open Design.

I had a chance to work in the truck for a solid 3 days. I got the front D60 welded out and painted. Both coilover mounts are done. The full hydro is mounted and the lines are plumbed. I finally finished mounting my last tire and torqued it to spec since I was tired of looking at it. I mounted the front grille and welded in the driver side seat mount.











I should have a roller by the end of the week when I get my coilovers back from Brave Motorsports. I'm pretty excited. It has been a long time coming.

Links are done, steering is plumbed and bled, the engine fired up after 8 months on the first crank and the auto seems (fingers crossed) to be working correctly. I'm pretty happy. Kinda overkill with the pics but I'm proud of all of my hard work with some satisfaction that 98% of it was done on my own.













Short test drive completed.



Knocking out the little things.

Vision X Optimus pods



Bed lined out with a Pelican case for tools and and my ARB recovery gear


Interior wiring and shifters completed


Well the test drive went well on Friday. I didn't push it too hard and put about 5 miles on it. The full manual control of the auto is pretty sweet. I even threw the plates on ha ha.






Just a few little things to wrap up over the next few weeks before my trip to Gilmer.
