Thanks.

Plans are for a dual tcase, 36" iroks bias, and winches front and back.
Depending on the budget I may regear to 5.29's or put 4.7s in the second tcase.

Other than that I plan on building a cage, bumpers, sliders, etc.

Hopefully I can keep it between $3-4k. I am at about $2100 right now and that includes (4) new 36X13.5 iroks, a new smittybuilt winch, frame steel, a used second tcase (not the adapter though - about $350), consumables, etc.

Looks like my plan to buy a new mountain bike is off until next year:confused0006:

I hope to have it done by May long weekend but I have two kids, working wife, and a full-time job (who doesn't?:dontknow: :dontknow: ) so it may take a little longer.

I will have to check it out, thanks for the heads up. Those aren't shackles, I just hacked that together to act as a spring mount so I could mount the rear springs in the front. I am going to build a new spring hanger/bumper/winch platform in the near future.

are you stretching the cab?
The original cab is long gone, stupid of me....I should have kept it. I don't really know what I am doing with the cab yet. Suggestions???
