Haha I've been nitriding everything. It's like when you buy a deep fryer everything gets it.

I like the green and black. The links look more like gun stocks now

final checklist on the fender. top off fluids, grease everything, retighten/torque, and recalibrate the computer for the tire change. its on 42" pitbull rockers now with 17" H2 wheels. this is going to be my main beater offroad set-up. i have some work to do on the front bumper to get the 47's to clear properly.

so ive been out and put about 450 miles on the truck on-road, logging roads, light off-road, etc. im still getting my sea legs and trying to learn the truck. overall it just plain works. the radius arm does limit the flex a little bit, but im also not likely to get into a situation where extreme articulation is a regular thing. ive got a bunch of pics and videos, buuuuut ive been asked to hold onto them...for now. the new roof rack materials are all here, i just need to get the truck over the Big Dog to get that started. ive been priming the water a bit to see if i can get a good deal on some new LED based lighting. we shall see.

 

got her weighed. it was 7000 stock. the weight ticket also reflects a couple hundred pounds of stereo gear, duck decoys, guns, and ammo that was all on board at the time.

i pulled out the rear radio controls (that have been obsoleted anyhow) from the back of the center console, and it left me a nice spot to mount the ARB switches. i drew up a small simple panel and my buddy chopped it out on his plasmacam. it holds in with 4 rare-earth magnets i epoxied in from the backside. just needs powdercoated now.

the truck has gotten raving attention and dropped jaws everywhere we go. we pretty much emptied the Summit Racing showroom when we took it up there a few weeks ago. ive still got some projects to go on the truck, but god damn....2 things are for sure: the burb is fucking awesome. and i am fucking handsome.

well, after all that tire bullshit. its settled. 44" PB Rockers. they fit good, clear pretty good, looks right, and drive right. had the truck out a ton of places, seen some trails, some mud, and some pavement... and had a bunch of fun with my boys in it. that was the goal. still need some slider/steps and a new roof rack... i just cant seem to find anyone local that really knows how to bend tube and look good. i may bite the bullet and take it to Woodlee this winter.

 

i had a magazine shoot lined up, but i bailed because i still have some things i want done before its shown like that. they may try again next spring, well see.

 

 

 

here she is after a 6 hr clean up after the Danville mudrun.
