  1. All is not lost yet 😉 these tips are temporary for the moment 🤪
  2. Exhaust is basically finished. A couple band clamps to allow for removal in the future as necessary. Otherwise.... now I gotta get my ass in gear to finish the wiring and the few minor details to drive her before winter hits!
  3. Thanks for the info and compliment! I’m diving into areas i’ve not worked with yet so it’s an on-going learning experience for sure!
  4. I wish it was only $300 😞 $575. The only local shop that even knew what I was after was who I went with. I know that the only weak spot in my entire drivetrain is now the rear end so I am ok with the cost.
  5. Driveshaft is done! Not cheap but went with 1310 joints to keep drivetrain weak spots down to the rear end 🤦🏻‍♂️
  6. Started fabbing the exhaust this evening. I was able to clearance the tunnel/floor near the torsion bar crossmember enough to get a 2.5” pipe through the area for now. In the future i’ll go coilovers and remove/modify the crossmember for more room and beat the floor back into place. But for now, a few pics
  7. How has it been a month since i’ve touched it?! Got exhaust parts. Still waiting on a pair of 90° bends to begin fabbing the exhaust up but everything else is here and waiting for me I REALLY wanted to have a through body tip out of each lower beside like this but the driveline is destroying my budget Going with this style; though about cutting a rectangle and going through the body with it but.... It’s not the look I want and patching it later will be a ton of work so i’ll angle them down like so and reassess in the future

    Rear air shocks

    I’m running just air shocks for my rear suspension. Although I have not driven the truck yet (still in the final stages of drivetrain swap) they hold up the rear of the truck well This is with about 120psi in them
  9. It adjusts both at the same time so you will need to split the difference of what you feel the 1 side to be off.
  10. I imagine he is not pushing the piston as far up the cylinder. He’ll lower compression that way but it should allow larger valves to be used as well with a larger diameter bore.
  11. Did I miss the winner announcement?
  12. I am sometimes a bit cheap for my own good so I went the route that cost exactly $0 😂
  13. That was kinda the major final selling point for me to snag it. I didn’t feel like messing with a ton of geometry setting up a suspension. This made ⅔ of it almost bolt in. Fits nicely 👍🏻
  14. Another piece made up so I can measure accurately for a driveline
