I'm convinced that he's 100% responsible for the axle and shock choices! Lol.

  No kidding Mike!  Kenny "the Queen" sent me an e-mail claiming the front end was going to be on the ground today, and the rear axel will be gone by tommorrow.  If thats the case, where are the updated pics? Huh?

i only had 7.5" to work with.  My bender outside diameter is 10.5".  It worked out.  I'm going to add a cross brace between the hoops.

super excited to see this thing in person! Cheesy  Kenny,  the front end of this thing is too awesome to complete the job without hydro assist.  let me know what parts you need me to get to make that happen.
On a side note,,,, Mike, what the hell is up with your avatar?  Is that a....  what is that?

looks like it's not a problem tapping the the stock steering box.  So, what you need is a 1.5" bore 6.75 stroke ram (psc has one for about $200), a hose kit, and an inline cooler.   I would do a bigger reservoir, too, but I'd have to make it custom to fit.

kenny, im not sure i understand your brackets on the axle. Huh?  i thought we were just going with a long arm, stock like system.  Did you find a way to make it a 3 link?

it's still a 4 link with panhard, like the stock setup.  arms are now 31".  There is no way to 3 link it properly without relocating the gas tank.  I'm still working on the shock mounts, so....i spoke too soon, not quite done. haha
