decided to go all out

ordering all the goodies from rovertym for suspension later this week. Ordering the full toyota swap front and rear from rovertracks. Almost done with the custom rock sliders, fuel tank skid plate, jerry can rack and relocating the tire 3" etc. I'm excited to get it done. With about a $600 difference in arb setup and reinforcing the stock unit, it made sense to just make it better now.

Made it further than half of the other guys, but the Hammers won.

I'll do better than that! I'll probably be asking your advise. Still hung up on whether to relocate the front shocks or not. I have learned that Disco II upper mounts will work with homemade lowers welded. Is it worth it?

I don't know. I never did it. It is nice to have the shock outside the coil just for the ease of things. I went a different direction. Kieth will probably give you good info.
