Got mine a few years ago and it was fine. A second one bought at the same time wasn't 100% straight.

HD Springs

I was not happy with how low the front end of the truck was sitting and I haven't even added the heavy front bumper or winch yet. So I decided before I got the fenders on and everything put back together I would swap out the medium load Terrafirma front springs with the heavy version. When both sides were done it added and inch and a quarter and she is sitting almost level now from front to back. I also added a Terrafirma gas tank skid plate since the stock tank is pretty thin metal.

If anyone needs a brand new set of medium front springs let me know. They were installed but never driven on.

Swivel Ball Seals....UGH!

While I was swapping out the front springs I noticed the left side swivel ball seal was leaking pretty good and the truck has not even been driven yet. I guess I should have replaced these when I did the hubs and bearings, but at the time I did not want to dive into it.

I took the plunge and put in new swivel balls, seals, bearings and new CV joints. The old swivel balls weren't in too bad of condition just some light pitting. What a nasty messy job to replace them though....

Slow but Steady...

Made a little more progress this weekend. Cleaned up the windshield frame and installed it along with new top and bottom seals. Got the vent flaps in and also cut out the openings for the new back up lights. I went with two 18 watt LED's. Should be nice and bright. I also have them on a switch along with two pivoting LED's at the top of the rear door to use when camping/off roading, etc...

Too HOT to work!

Well it has been 120 degrees outside and about 150 in the garage so progress has been slow! I have been doing what I can inside the house during the heat (the wife really loves this). I recently swapped out the glass fuses to blade fuses.

I wanted to cover up the opening in the front wheel wells so mud and rocks are not damaging the foot wells. An easy solution was to mount a set of mud flaps to cover the openings. I also got both wings mounted, the hood, release cable, hood latch and grille.

Few More Things...

A few more small things buttoned up. I installed the vent bug screens, floor panels and seals, bulkhead hump, gear box cover.

Also rebuilt the wiper assembly. Cleaned and re-greased the motor, installed a new rack and new wiper arm mounts. also have new tubing and spray nozzles to put in after paint.

I think she is almost ready to be sprayed....

Doors on..

Doors are on and I seam sealed all the areas that needed it on the floorboards and cargo area. She is booked to go to the Line-X shop on Monday the 15th of August.

Although I should probably leave her in this rainbow pattern of white, green, and black. I wouldn't have to worry about anyone messing with it that way I bet!

Back in Black

Dropped off Monday at local Line-X shop. They quoted 5-6 days for full interior and exterior spray. The next photo should look a lot nicer...

Yes, it will be a textured black finish with the UV coating.

Teaser Photo!

The guy spraying the truck just text me a teaser photo. The UV coating is not on yet, but I think it looks bad-ass! Not to mention this stuff holds up way better than paint and comes with a 10 year warranty.

I dropped it off Monday and they thought 5-6 days to do the truck. Today they said it should be finished Friday so 5 days total. They still need to put the UV coating on.

Is each piece being sprayed separately?

Based on this seam line (which I'm sure dried cleanly), I'd guess not. But it looks great nonetheless and that stuff is so thick that fitment/re-joinery could have been affected had it been sprayed separately.

Yikes! I'd say so. I wonder if that is Line-X, Rhino liner or a different product...
