After a month or so's work, here is what we did:

Front axle: truss, C gussets, sleeves, chromoly shafts, high steer knuckles, rotors, calipers, Warn lock out hubs.

Cross over steering with hiem jointed drag link, tie rod, & track bar.

Adjustable lower front control arms.

Rear axle: Eaton E-locker (original stock locker was shedding teeth), chromoly shafts, rotors, calipers.

17" wheels and tires.

Whew! Now it gets to set until we get back next fall to test it out.

sounds like some nice upgrades... but what a bummer you don't get to play with it right now!

Wow that's a lot of stuff! I'm with K, it is a huge bummer you don't get to drive it right now. Safe travels home & back, and see you in the fall.

Curious to see how things work for you. I have the same rig, still mostly stock.

Currently, I am waiting on Savvy under armor, which is back-ordered. Can't wait to rid myself of the factory shovel!

So far, so good. No wobble at any speed over bumps on the highway with NO stabilizer. I think highsteer and getting rid of the unit bearings are the best mods . If I had it to do over I think I would just buy a Dynatrac or G2 front axle instead of modifying the stock. I need to replace the beat up skid plate so let me know how the Savvy works out.

Peace & Grace

I installed the under armor last fall. everything seems to be working out well. I'm still piecing together some wiring, so that I can relocate my locker pumps. I located some 3 wire connectors from the bone yard, so that I can make a extension harness, to locate the pumps up near the ABS tray.

 

 

I will update when the weather finally breaks here. Still chilly and wet here!
