Santa made his last delivery today for quite a while since I got my tranny, now I just have a bunch of work to do the next couple of weeks or more. I need to hurry since wheeling season is about to get underway. I'm also really lucky I have such an understanding wife. I'll be posting quite a bit as I start the next phase of my build. Here's a pic of my new stage 3 monster 700.

I got started on the cross over steering and new shocks today. I managed to get the passenger side done, still need to mount the gear box, pump and drivers shock.

Nice. Did you bend the shock towet away from the frame or did you just bolt it on out of the box

I actually was having trouble getting the shock tower to clear at it's full length with the bend in it. I searched online and found I needed to cut it off at the length I wanted and mount it flat to the frame, since I was using 14" travel shocks on a 4" lift I cut the towers right at the bend and mounted it about an inch up from the bottom of the frame.  This put the top of the tower right at the firewall and I had to do some reshaping to make room for the nut. The shock tower also must be mounted flat to the frame for it to clear the steering shaft. It was a giant pain working around everything on the passenger side, the drivers side should be much easier.

Today I got the steering box installed, thanks for the help Lee, and drag link. I also installed the drivers side shock and tower, what a giant PITA that was when I found out the firewall is closer to the frame on this side, after a couple of hours of cutting, hammering and cussing I finally got the shock on. Tomorrow I'll get the pump and cooler done and go try it out.


I also noticed the nice bend in the tierod, I think I'll save up some money and go ahead and put on the high steer.

I finished it up and took it out for a test drive today, I can't believe how much it will flex out now and still turn. I can't wait to really put it work on the trails.

That would be cool, I'm sure Tony will want to put his on a ramp after his SAS is done also.

LOL, all these rocks out here and you need a metal ramp to flex it out. Ges, you should just stick to the mall parking lots. You could be the king of curb crawling. Woo Hoo! :redx:

Started building the winch mount today, I managed to get it tucked in nice and tight so I won't have much overhang. The only way to move it in anymore would be to cut the core support and I wasn't ready to do that.

Looks good, when you said you were tucking it in, I didn't think that much. Definitely wont be in the way. Look forward to seeing the bumper around it!

Thanks Tony, there was a lot more room than I expected. I hope to have the rest of the main part of the mount done and the grill back in by tomorrow then I will do the tubing part of the bumper.
