    Looks nice, I like the way your battery cables are run, the red dipstick top really sets off the chrome breather lid, and all of the braded hose covers are a very nice touch.
    Did you install the dual shocks or were they on the truck when you got it??? how does it ride?/handle?

    Thanks,,,, the dual shocks were on it when I bought it,, it had RS5000's all the way around. When I bought my Tuff Cnty. EZ ride springs,, I got all new shocks and dual stearing stabilizer from them also. I rides pretty good and seems to handle just fine. Actually, I posted the wrong pic,, those battery cables run to a Summit Remote Silinoid mounted on the fender,,

    Todd,

    You should make a trip to St. Louis and we will go wheeling before you head out to Alaska. The rig looks real good, I will try not to get you too muddy [​IMG][​IMG]

    I might just have to Mudzer,,, It needs a road test before I make that huge of a road trip. I got family down in Cape,, I might run down to see them before I go,, if so, I'll let you know.

    Keep up the great work and good luck with it

    Todd,
    Thought I throw in a compliment too, since you've helped me out a lot. That is one sweet looking ride man. Its what under the hood that counts, and you got it where it counts. Keep up the good work, and you'll keep making me jealous.

    Heck Yeah, you can copy it. This is my first ever attempt at this much work on a vehicle. I've learned so much in the past 6 months and I couldn't have done it with out all of you. THANK YOU! And a special Thanks to Steve for running this board and making it all possible.
