Mine is "Rust free" but the interior is trashed ....... well everything is trashed really I have a Vortec 454 NV4500/NP205 and a 60/14 bolt combo for mine. I'll probaly end up with 37" MTR's I wanna set mine up for Moab . I'd like it to be a cabale rig but still Highway drivable ( no trailers kinda rig)


i really like the bed design on your Sub ranger that looks really tough

Holy Sh*t! You have been busy. Thats why I never hear from ya. So we going to make Alaska Offroads winter run? I think it is around late Nov. Grab ol Matt as your side kick. I am in. Eric said he would fly up and ride with me. Mine will be done and tested by then. I think it would be a great time. I am thinking a week. I have a trailor I can use from a buddy.



*EDIT*.....Thank you for painting the frame. Your rig looks much cleaner and custom. NOW WHACK THE REST OF THAT REAR FRAME OFF! Your departure angle will be great. You can follow me over the tricky stuff. LOL!

Looking good man!

Is there any way you can put your drivers side cylinder clamp inside the fitting so there is no way the cylinder can slide out of the clamp? If not, I'd recommend some radial loctite between the cylinder and the clamps, and some antisieze on the bolts so you can frequently check torque.

I love the bed and departure angle. Do the same to the front. The axle looks good.
