Ok, I just have to ask.  With all the money he's spending on this, why not a D60 up front?

Because he's not hard on equipment like Phantom 309.



I thought I'd go ahead and save Ben the trouble.

I'm not tryin to be negative about the jeep, I was just curious because of the amount of money being spent is all.  I'm completely jealous!!!  What size tires are going on it?

At first he was going to keep the 258 six cly so the 44 was good I think if he had to do it again he would run a rock jock but he has spent to Much on the 44 so we will see how good rcv axle are. He is running 37" iroks.

I love it! Why the decision to tube the front? Clearance issues?

Yes I could not get any up travel so tube was the easy way to do it. I am waiting for the new winch to add more tube.

dang,, im not a jeep guy,, but thats sexy..   I like the idea to make room for up travel in the front.
Are the co mounts in the rear going to be frenched into the chassis or is that the final placement ?
killer build :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

The rear co mounts are frenched into the frame about 1/2in that is all I could without cutting into the body the tires clear at full flex so it sould be good
