Few more pics of the tailgate. I should add to that bonehead move thread. I painted the inside and used too much of the paint and the outside I got 90% done.

Slow going but I have most of the rear axle installed. I still need to order some Fox Emulsions and clean the LH hub, brake rotor, and install the longer wheel studs.

Thanks Matt and Charles - feels good to work at the chassis level. Kind of like a massive Lego set. Matt - will love to help if you do a chassis swap on the DC. You are more than welcome to swing by anytime.

I know we talked about a interior cage. Not sure if I might just repair the NAS110 I have and then do the cage somewhere down the line. If you have any other custom ideas before I start fab work please feel free to post up.

Thanks Jonesy! I got the wheels on last night and to have a "roller" feels pretty freaking awesome. I still have a long way to go but step by step.

I got the wheels on and outside so I could flip it around front facing forward. I need to finish up a few items on the axles but should be able to get to the motor soon.

Thanks Charles! I really like having a slot in the garage and just popping pieces on. Working with a galvy frame is sooooo nice.

The only problem is, I am stressing on every part I put on it. If it doesn't look clean or has some rust I refinish it and even the bolts. But it is a good thing as I am mostly satisfied when it is all put together.

Very detailed, love it! What rate did you have the shocks set to?

Oh, and what size tires are those MTRs? You have about 2" of lift from those coils?

I am not sure he rate on the shocks - I got them from Justin at Lucky 8 and he said he knew a nice rate for Defenders. I will be getting a matching set for the rear when I get some spare funds.

The Goodyears are 315-75-16. They run a true 35" mounted (but not on the car).

I am guessing the springs will yield 2". I have LR HDs on the rear and OME front (very close specs to the LR HD) on the truck now and it looks about 2". The stance is just right IMO.

I overvalved mine from Justin and now need to get them much softer. I should have went with his advice I guess. .

So you are fitting 35s with 2" loft and 1" spacers. Planning on any fender trimming or do you think you'll be fine? I ask because Im about to install 4.10s and I think the 285s look a bit lost with 2" lift.

Thanks!
