    I'm gonna run what I got for now . Maybe one day go to a 14 rear .

    I frenched the hangers into the frame and also took shackle tubes and frenched them into the frame .

    Pulled 2 leafs out of my old 4" trailgear springs .

    Got my Dom 1/4 wall link tubes ready to go . My best buddy Ryan (Fernley818) is TIG welding my links right now .


    Thats how it sits .
    Lots of bugging my friends and asking their opinions on every step of the way .
    Just bought a tube bender so once the links are in and ready I'll be ready for the next challenge (never bent tube before)

    I like it. I should have done a similar front frame. I hacked just in front of the stock motor mount

    I was looking at doing something similar to how you did yours . The frame I got looked like it had hit something . So I had to go further back then I planned .
    I don't post much on here but I follow your build .
    I text and bug Aaron all the time !! He has also helped me a lot with some of the ideas I've had .
    Other things I didn't mention .
    It's gonna have fullhydro (trailgear kit)

    Yota44 build thread

    My last truck I just built it as went . When it broke it was upgraded .
    I've been told since I started wheeling that I needed to go 1tons .
    With my new house I finally had enough room to tackle a project like this and not have my wife complaining about trucks and parts scattered in the drive way .

    Big decisions I still have to make are tires (40s) and shocks .
    Money is obviously a issue with every thing . But any advice is appreciated

    The panhard is gonna make me notch the frame .

    Looks like I have to make room for this panhard bolt . Grinding alittle off the truss isn't a big deal . It's plenty thick and won't make much of a difference right there .

    I've seen a few people notch the frame with ether tube or channel .
    I can cut it out and use plate to cover it all back up .

    How close is your axle to the oil pan or pulleys at bump?

    that's 4.5 - 5 inches above ride height. So I think I can run it like that with out messing with be frame .

    I took all this week off so I'll be working on it as much as I can .

    Looking good. I went with Pro-Comps (40's) on mine. Still in the building phase, but here is my test fit.
