Awesome work Crash.... awesome work!!!!

Thanks :cool:

Check out poker table cup holder inserts. You should be able to mount them in a piece of aluminum wherever you want them in the cab.

I am playing with a couple ideas---started with an insert of sorts.

I've loved watching this thing come together from the beginning, looks badass! Awesome job dude. What kind of brackets did you use for the flashlight?

I looked for them and I don't know if they make them anymore. All I can find are the plastic ones and had these for a long time.

Looks amazing Crash! Awesome work as always!!

thanks :cool:
This build has been fun to watch!!! You made it look quick and easy!!! But we all know how smooth it really "doesn't" go...

No shit huh. But in reality it really wasn't hard, it just tool allot of thought and never got frustrated until doing the hood..

So I won't lie I took it an easy--just to feel out the rig and its capabilities and any issues...

I gotta say it performed way above what I thought it would. I had zero clearance issues with only a couple small problems. The first failure was a dumb oversight and I blew and I blew the front arb line where it was close to the header. Second was a dumb brake fluid leak at the bleeder on the right rear caliper. The third I thought I had fixed but I guess I didn't and that was a small leak at the fitting on the feed line to the pump at the reservoir.

I would have sworn I was still running my coilovers with a sway bar--it drove like a dream...

So I have parts coming this week to finish it all up...

Nice vids, rig rolls smooth on the rocks. That part of g11 is no joke, tried crawling it on a dry 70° day and no Bueno. Second gear and launching the rig two feet in the air was the only way I could get up.

When its dry I usually could drive the passenger tire up the log...

So I have not slowed down and been super busy with getting a bunch of stuff done on my dodge and all new led lights/wiring on my trailer.

So I figured I would update the build since more has been done...

So here is my oops that caused my arb line to fail...

Also something else I should have done from the get go was get a new perportioning valve. I found the threaded shaft was stuck when I went to bleed the brakes for the first time so I ordered a new one.

So arb makes these nice slip lock repair things that are quite handy so I ordered one of those so I wouldn't have to replace the whole line. I also got some more of that heat sock that I had used and not only encased the arb line but I also moved it to the other side of the brake line.

So after my second run with the rig I found a spot of oil on the ground--this did not make me too happy. One thing I was happy was with how I designed the engine skid. I was able to pull the pan with minimal work and just maxing out the struts to give some room. for some reason there was no adhesion on the sealer (gms) to the front cover. Even though I was working on my back it really wasn't too bad to replace the gasket--fingers crossed...
