    Well I have a trip planned this weekend that I have been hard wrenching to get my junk done for and just wanted to post a few pics and ask a question

    where is the cheapest best place to get long shocks asap must have them here by friday ? and what is the longest number for gabriel shocks, If i have to go thru AZ

    I mounted my fuel cell granted how it is now is not permanent but here are pics....all that is left is fill my trans and transfer case get my brakes bleed, then just timing check , and wire a few misc things Alternator, Elec Fans,and fuel pump to my nifty switch panel.

    1. Grommet the hole through the bed for fuel line.
    2. Those tie wraps on the d-shafts will probably break. Use metal clamps.
    3. Torque and tighten all chassis and suspension bolts.
    4. Grease all fittings.
    5. Check lugs.
    6. Carry tools and enough fluid to replunish all at least once.

    These are a few things off the top to do. Alot depends on what you are going to do and whether you tow your rig. But as a first out since many mods and upgrades, you need to prepare for the worst. Good luck and wheel it hard.

    ground that fuel cell!!!! :eek:

    you've got a plastic cell, inside a plastic box, filled with fuel. ask anybody who runs a plastic bedliner about static electricity.

    why didnt you narrow the rear bumper? seems kind of pointless to narrow the bed if you're going to leave a stock bumper on it.
