Looking good Justin, thanks for the update.

Regarding the pic upload....try just doing 3 or 4. I've run into issues myself when trying to load 5 or 6 large mb pics....I'm thinking there is a limit on how much can be uploaded and compressed by the software.

Thanks guys.

Good call on the pics Duncan. I tried three at a time and it worked. On the one upload that did work, three of the pics were off my Iphone and three were off the camera. So how about the rest of the pics?

I framed the floor in with 2x2x1/4" angle, it`s welded to the cage and tied to the frame. In between the angle and the original floor is 1/8" plate that I cut and fit to fill the gaps. You can also see how the floor plates bolt down. I drilled and tapped the holes.




wiring is still in the mockup stage also lol.



The radiator hoop I bent up using a buddies pipe bender. Got it on the first try too. The radiator isn`t the look I was going for, but I figured $200 that I would`ve spent on a new Griffin could be better spent somewhere else when I had this one. My plan for a grill at this point is some stainless gravel shaker screen my buddy has in his junk yard.



Windstar fans. How about that ugly a** power steering pressure hose? Probably gonna redo that with AN. Nobody wants to recrimp it if I cut and shorten it. And it bugs me lol.







I built the exhaust with goodies scavenged out of my buddies "save" pile, plus two new mufflers. I`ve been wanting to try these Summit one chambers, which are clearly Flowmaster one chambers. But they have a different sound than my last set of Flowmasters. I suspect because they don`t have a sound baffle my Flowmasters did. Still not sure how I feel about them yet.







It`s been a long time coming, but I`m pretty happy with how things are coming with it. I`ve only had it up to about 30 or 40 mph, but my custom driveshafts don`t seem to vibrate or shake, The DIY beadlock wheels don`t
shake or do anything stupid, and once I get it buttoned up it should be awesome lol.

Love it!

Awesome project, glad to see you getting close to the "finish line", although we all know project are never really done .

I won't lie though, I got a little nervous with that power steering line so close to the drive belt.
