Looks awesome man. I really like where you’re headed with this. It has got to be awesome to have access to all that equipment.

Looking good so far, only thing I'd be concerned, personally, is those deep notched chassis just to access the skid bolts to links. I'd be scared chassis could bend at those notches...

Yeah. I've wondered about that also.Plan on adding some tubework so Hopefully that will help. If not,I'll figure something out for support.

Haven't been able to get this thought out of my mind so, I eliminated the notches. Screwed the link screws in from the inside. Now I'm just waiting on my new rails to get back from the waterjet.

Also, finally got my rings mounted. really like the simple look of these.

Also,was indecisive on what I wanted to do with the lower links. If you've seen some of my past builds,you'll know that I usually make some machined lowers.
Couldn't decide on what old design I wanted to use so,I drew up a new design. The basics on them are the same but,I changed them just enough to make them unique to this build. The first pics are some of the old designs.Last one is what I think I'll make for this one. Let me know what you think.
Speed holes always make you go faster but Im liking the the newer styles here. they just add an extra level of "holy Fark thats sick"

Got my links machined today. Sandblasted one to compare it to the raw finish. Think I'm leaning towards the raw finish. I'll run them through the tumbler on Monday to see how they come out.

Getting closer. Got the chassis and bumpers painted. Not overly happy with the paint but,I'll redo them when I get a couple of other things done.
Also,got the links mounted.

Wasn't happy with the crappy plastic caps on the stock shocks so,ordered some Pro-Line Pro specs. Feel much smoother.
