been running one of these for a while. My last bottle lasted 12mos. Included a fair amount of impact work which uses lots of gas. Only way to go if you have the space.

Started on some bottom of the list projects, to include a universal mount that slides into my jack points. With this mount I can attach a vise as shown, or a folding table top I'm building.

Intresting. I have seen a vise kit that fits into a hitch receiver for the back of trucks.

And here's the folding table I fashioned from an old aluminum street sign. It's strong enough for use as a cooking/kitchen table and a few beers.

Holy crap - you've got some pretty insane hardware going on there! Can't wait to see pics of that setup installed. Hope it solves that rear end dampening issues you posted about.

I can already tell the RTE rear upper mounts won't work and I'll have to fab up taller ones. Springs should arrive next week and I'll be ready to bolt everything up.

I'm shooting for 5" up and at least 8" down. The rears are 14" travel shocks. I'm doing some work on the a-arm too.

Is that on the 110? Those don't look like the KM2's you had on it? Can't really see the upper mount - but looks like it was done with square tubing?

That's going to have some setup when you are done - with the X-Eng trailing arm kit.

I use a smaller (tiny!) set of tires on the truck when I am working on it - makes it easier to move around and work on. Upper mounts are 2" square .25" wall square tube welded to 1/2" plate.

Makes sense. Mounts sound interesting. If you get any more pics of them please post. Cool that you can make your own stuff. I just got a Lincoln TIG machine and will be learning the ways of the torch this winter. One of the things I want to do are sliders - or at least modify the ones I have to fit much nicer.

Front is all done with new springs, Fox Shox, and RTE mounts.

Rears all done too, with new springs, Fox Shox, RTE lower mounts, and custom upper mounts.

The other pic is my ride with hooptie tires.

Tomorrow: Rear disc conversion!
