    After a weekend roadtrip to NJ to pick up my 42s. I got a chance tonight to mount 2 of them and test fit them. I've got a lot of trimming I can already see. I've got to mark them up and break out the plasma cutter. Hopefully I'll get a lot done this weekend. Still got to finish the tbi swap, trimming and I've got a date with my gear guy to put those 5.13s in this weekend. I need a beefy draglink my stock one keeps slipping on the splines, anyone know who or where I can get one made. Thought about buying the tubing and weld in ends and making my own.

    I got a bud who can make 1.5x.433 tie rods, and even makes them bigger than that if needed. 1.25x.313 is standard but can be sleeved with 1.5x.120 for a total of 1.5x.433. $85 sleeved and threaded.

    I was wondering about that myself.

    he has a semi floater in the rear, and a 10 bolt or D44 front and he's talking about gearing to 5.13?

    SNAP, crackle, and POP are going to be your favorite words on the trail!!

    I know, I know. Yes that is a hoss of a 10bolt up front but I'm replacing the sf w/govlock with the locked,disc, ff sitting on the other side of the shop. I was hoping a D60 would fall from the sky by now but no luck. I've got the gears sitting in the shop ready to install. I guess I need to stock up on front shafts.

    Seeing a Dana 60 fall from the sky would be cool, but i would sure hate to get hit by it on its way down :D

    I plan on picking up another set of shafts before our trip next month. So will more than likely be changing them about the same time you are on the trail. Looks good, I will be down this weekend to see for myslef and lend a hand if you need for the day or so.

    John,

    nice looking rig!

    Are those RCI buckets? I am considering a set and wanted to get your opinion on them. Just how uncomfortable are they....:grin:

    really, any input would be greatly appreciated.

    thanks,

    Andrew

    Got the seats from Summit for like $38 each. I haven't trail tested them yet but have drove them around town. They are actually fairly comfortable, if you like hard plastic support. It takes the slump and hump out of my sitting style.
