Finally, some pictures for all those who asked

I know I have taken a while but a few people have asked to see a bunch of things a bunch of times so here are a few pics. I am going to wait for the cage to be finished before posting that up because it has taken so long, I just want to get it finished before I show it. So first, for Brett, here is the 6in round speakers mounted in the hard top. It was a tight fit but worked really well since it took no space and allows you to actually hear when you hit 70mph!

Here are teh 6x9's in the bulkhead. There are two amps behind there too. It was a tight fit but I really did not want to waste any space on my stereo.

Here is the front end. Check out the clearance under that diff!! I am not showing the modified radius arms that hold it in place untill I get permission from KC. He might put it together in a kit and I am not sure he wants it on the net. Just to give you guys an idea, it uses up every inch of those 14in shocks with the ease of a rear suspension. That equals over 17in of travel in the front end. And I know this might ruffle a few feathers, but it makes the SG 3 link look like a joke. I have ridden in both and there is no comparison to how this handles both on the road and off. Of course, I am biased, but this is the best thing I have done to this thing.

And just for bling, one of the roll cage taken from the roof. I will post pictures of the whole thing very soon as I think I am about to be done. Oh man, I can't wait to be done!

Took you long enough! Jeez I though my clothes were going to go out of style!! Nice looking Tdi Dave. Is the tub carpeted or is that rhino lined? I can't tell from the pictures because everything appears dimensionless in the back. I like the NSO roof emblem too!

Thanks for the pics Dave. That is looking sweet as a nut!

Needs more diagonals/triangulation...



























Just Kidding. Hopefully you are familiar with some of the classic PBB discussions on failed cages. I'm sure KC is....

Looks sweet.

Thanks for the nice comments! The tub is all carpeted with good old Home Depot outdoor carpet. It was pretty cheap. I don't have a problem telling anything, the diffs are 9in with 4.56 gears. The rear is a full floater too! I know what your talking about Dave! It cracks me up some times on PBB listening to those guys. When I get the cage done, I'll take some pictures of how it attaches to the body.

I can't believe I almost forgot! Nothing like a $30 steering wheel to really give your truck that special look.

Dave,

You completed the whole look with those yellow outlined shifter numbers

I'm a bit disappointed you don't have the cross-drilled racing pedals

Kidding aside, nice job on the truck!!!

Nice big tach. Good for those drag races
Is that a km/h speedo??

That Tach could be bigger. The only thing that kills the life of that 300TDi is high revs and heat. I should use it for drag racing. Ever since I put on that 3in exaust, I can peel out in first and second gear on a dry street with 37in tires.

The speedo is in km. That speedo and the heater motor are the only two moving parts on the whole truck that I have not replaced.

Got Yellow? or how about Got Rice?

Now I need to go back and read what you wrote

Looks sweet so far. I'm really curios about the front radius arms, if I have to guess on what KC did to it to make the front flex is take the bushing design and add either Johnny joints or hiem but I could be wrong.

On the coil over mounts, do you have a bar that connect both mounts to each other. I see one in the back ground but not sure if it's the one.
