Making fast progress. I like the wider rear seat area.

Yeah, the time frame is super short on this one, at least to get it on the road.

Been working on sheet metal and stuff like for so long I decided today I would work on something fun!
Got a good chunk of the front bumper done this afternoon, really dig it!
I also moved the front shock mounts down 3", now I have 5" up and 9" down travel.

Pulled the body off the chassis today then finished welding the cage stand offs.
We will be flipping the tub over tomorrow wo I can clean up the underside and get it read to paint.

Does anyone know Dave(Raleigh1) outside of the forum? Going on almost 2 months since he's been around wondering if all is well?

It looks great!!

Sorry guys, knida forgot about posting over here!

Like said it is back together and running strong, having a blast with it.

Still learning how to drive it, the set up is so much different but so much easier to wheel.

Here is a couple videos


On this one the spotter and some damned rock stackers got me in a real bad spot, got out with minimal damage

Some other pics

A small group of us from Vegas went and ran the Con a couple weeks ago, didn't get many pics but it was an awesome weekend.
Happy to report the trail is not as easy as everyone said it was, although Little Sluice is basically filled in so that sucks.

At the Loon Lake sign



Heading down the slab


Couple of random trail pics



Lunch break at Spider Lake


The Soup Bowl


The Bridge



After Cadillac Hill, stopped to take in the view of the Springs below


We ran the trail in one day, about 14 hours on the trail including lunch and breaks. Next time we want to spend a night on the trail then head to Fordyce and spend a couple of days there.

Got some new tires for the Bronco, not much in life is as sexy as a Bronco on 40s!!!

Trimming begins tomorrow, shouldn't have the cut too much to clear them.
