Re: New UJoint Project

It's going! We had to knock out some other things and wait for some special parts so progress has been slow. Back on it now though, just tacked in the motor mounts yesterday.

Re: New UJoint Project

Side shot-- 6" lift, 315/70/17 BFG's on Black Rock wheels. Dual Bilstein 5160's up front, Aluminess F&R. It's hard to tell in this pic but the lower body is coated with Rhino Lining that has been painted body color.
