Hey! I'm here; finally. So, yea after a going through many iterations of the truck. We are here.
I met @Snowsk8air2 when I moved to Flagstaff and its snowballed since with the truck. When your around go fast stuff, you want to keep up or win. When you cant, what do you do? Spend money. A lot of it.
I used to live in Florida. So old setup was more for east coast wheeling. Mud, rocks and trees to ping pong off of. Which worked great out at WindRock and Black Mountain. Not so great out west here. Much more fun out here.
I do enjoy getting out to camp and relaxing and such. Its just more fun, when you can cruise along two track at a decent pace verus crawling along.
Anywho as I can copy pics and post back story about it. I will.
I am rough on the truck. I find the limits and exceed them. If there is BadLine, I'll find it. Just let me go first. However, I'm always down for a GoodTime.

Current state:

How it started?
Day I bought it with 6miles on it. .

Out by the Mint this year;
We’ll get the rear end tidied up and back together in the next week or two and start buttoning up the loose bits on the front before the end of summer. Or at least make sure you can send it at the cinders take over
And put it back together with the JD Fabbed inner fenders
Lil custom made UMP setup with an expensive MAF adapter..

Parts started going on smoothly

Had to pull apart the front because the EMF were clicking. Top caps were rubbing the ball of the joint. EMF is making taller caps and sending em over.

However, things still went on. Camper is on. Just need to get the winch and bumper back on.
Aaaannnd it works pretty good out of the box. Gonna turn some tubes on the rear bypasses a little and probably end up revalving the front to something similar to what I had in my truck before adding bypasses. This big girl is gonna dance.

just watched all of those clips with the free bird guitar solo playing in the background on accident. Significantly improved the experience haha
I'm horrible on keeping stuff updated. However, its been working well. Rear as settled. Calling Deaver shortly with updated weights on the truck.
She's a heavy gal for sure. With just the basics for DD duty. 6360# almost dead even too at F3200 R3160
I'll get some pics up
So. For those with solid axle I’m sure have heard of and maybe use EMF ball joints?
Which in that form. Probably great. In an IFS LT. Not so great.
Expedited reason to swap to all uniballs.

Then we had the holidays and such.
Through @Snowsk8air2 met with @Adventure Endeavor for a quit day trip on Broken Arrow.
At the beginning wasn’t looking and backed up to make room for a Jeep.
Got tippy. Consensus was to drive into a tree and get level then back it up. Added some good scratches but worked.

Then started the hard crunch for KOH with the team. I am very familiar with the TH400 and Tcase in the car now.

KOH was a blast.
Then went to the Mint400. Which is a fun annual event for a group of us.
As my usual self. I took like 2 photos during all that.
This past weekend @Snowsk8air2 and I worked on getting in the Solid Offroad motor mounts and Tundra rack in from BasikBiker
The tie rods are from JD to match the Lt kit.
