Default KNiK Dodge is almost ready

After going through 2 sets of poly bumps stops I thought i would give a set of airbumps a try. right now they are tac'ed in to place since all i had access to at the time was a little flux core machine. next weekend is my other body mount and ill be ready for the M AND G, pending that i solve my death wobble issues...

big thanks to 5 star for solving some of my other major issues

Lookin' good! That driveline angle at the front pinion looks a little better than the last time I looked at it from that point of view.

Is there any bind in that front d/s yoke? Sometimes the larger u-joints will bind up.

I checked it out at compression and droop and it seemed to be fine

Is there a driveline installed in the third picture?

Josh you need to cut those body mounts off and relocate them to the top of the frame. I have been running my custom body mounts for over a year and haven't had any problems with them. I can stuff the hell out of the tires and I have no issues.
Also I found a guy in British Columbia that sells Mog 404 axles and I am giving it serious thought compared to building a new set of one tons. $2100-2200 for a set delivered. That is with selectable lockers, the low gears and the pinion yoke changed over to what ever i need. Hawaiilover off the PS board has been doing the same swap and I have been following and it is coming out sweat with the DC long arms. No more issues with the long arms hitting **** and the clearance under the axles is incredible.

You mean laying in the dirt on the Eska Creek trail, trying to reassemble the u-joint?

I know you are putting the bed back on and the weight will help but open up the spring retainers on the rear and you wil net about 3-5 inches of travel.

Looks excellent. I can't tell from the pics, but did you triangulate any of your links if it's a 4 link, or is it a 3-link? I didn't see a panhard bar (though I could be mistaken) so I'm assuming triangulated uppers and lowers?

I don't know. Lurk around the pirate board and you can find some good stuff out of British Columbia.
