    Well it's only about 8 months behind schedule but my jimmy is just about done.I've posted a few pics of the build a while back.

    One year ago it looked like this

    This was my first truck that I have built and it has been a learning experince.
    I got alot of ideas and tech from reading post on this board.
    After many many hours and lots of $$$$ its just about ready for the trails.

    I still need to: Finish running brake lines
    Mount up hydro assist ram and HD tierod
    Make exocage on the front
    Relocate dual batterys to bed so I can mount air filter for
    turbo on the firewall
    Install lights on the front
    Work all of the bugs out of it and a bunch of small stuff
    That I can't remember right now.

    Yea I used a BTF bridge on the axle.The whole anti wrap including the bridge only cost about $400.I kind or based it off the MOO one with the orbital bushing.
    Thanks for all the complements.I can't wait to get on the trails.

    As we used to say about a well built ride back in the 70's "that's sano" (i.e. sanotized).
