Well I never liked Colorado and now I know why *LMAO*

It is 95% done ( still need to put the cage and the rest of the snorkel, 4 4000 Hellas and the Suspension upgrade ) but will be on the road by the weekend even without those items.

Alex, the following pic is for you ( you were so right about the color )

I still liked the white rims. Will have to see what I feel in person.

So are we lining yours and Jonathan's up on the 16th and doing a comparison?

Thanks

Charles,

I did like them white, but black looks better.

Not sure if I will make it on the 16 ( familly is visiting - I might )

Besides nothing to compare... I mean Shrek is the STUD and FRANKIE is from Frisco *LOL*

Lee,

If I get it on the road tomorrow I will take a bunch of them, then next week with the suspension and maybe the cage

( need to do some logistic crap to get the cage accomplished )

I knew it was a new photo, give a girl some credit.

Must be coming to Colorado in 3 weeks. Middle of nowhere makes me think you are driving out here since you'll have to go through Nebraska and Kansas...

I think I liked the white wheels better on it as well but everything else on that build kicks ass. It's going to look sick with the cage on. Can't wait to see what it looks like in action on the trail. Very nice job :

Sounds like you are busy as heck getting her done but if you have a chance I'd be curious what the build sheet is - like the axles and suspension.

If you changed out to 4:10's/4:11's you're going to like the way it drives. I was considering a 4.6 but my friend (and a few folks here) talked me into the re-gearing w/heavy duty axles (from Rovertrax) and it drives great; not going to upgrade the motor and I'm a lot more confident with regards to reliability on the trail. I painted the hub flanges flat black and I think they look pretty good...but my wheels are Limestone.

Don,


I thought so, but after I painted them beluga, I like it better.
When I am done will put the grocery list and pics of her in action will be ( hopefully someone takes pics as I always wheel alone ) after the trip end of April.

Some of the items are:

Qt Radius Arms 3 degrees
QT Rear links
OME 2" HD Springs
Terrafirma Turret Rings
Blingstein ( will change but unknown yet )
Equipe Turrets or in lack of Terrafirma
Polybushing ( Orange )
QT Panhard
QT portal Drag
( will do the cones after the trip when I lowered the rear shock mounts )
And if True Trac is fitted HD axels/CV from Keith will be fitted as well

Jay,

I have stock gears and drives awesome, only downfall is downshifting out of 5th on a long steep hill, but I did that on the 90 as well.
I kind of like the color of the flanges as my Turrets, radius arms, rear links, Portal Drag link, Panhard rod and diff guards are that colour, so I bling all around ( like Rico with the Gold Teeth *LOL* )

Currently has a Detroit SL on the rear Salisbury, will put a True Trac in front , but I doubt it will be done before the trip

Thanks for the pats spec Gustavo. It sure is a nice looking rig. I'm sure the beluga black on the rims looks treats in person too and having them repainted will most likely keep them shinier and better looking than the stock black paint (like on my Wolf rims).

Don,

Those wheels have 5 coats of paint ( beluga ) and 4 of clear....

needed to sand the Chawton off as when applying the Clear it would lift.

The Powder color of the nato is nice but don't last long and make the wheels look dull

I think the CHawton Wheels made oldie classy look and the beluga gives the mean ready for business look

I saw Gustavo's rig yesterday and it bears little resemblance to the truck I sold him in November. You guys should push for more pictures....

He's made a lot of custom mods to Equipe parts to make them fit with the existing accesories. He's gone through some frustrating times but the end result is awesome. He's also been quite generous giving his cast off parts to my son for his 110.

I wouldn't change the gearing. with the Tdi, tweaked injection pump,full width intercooler, and 1.4 transfer case, the gearing is perfect for the 33's. Truck will run over 80 mph and is comfortable cruising @ 75 and is fairly quick from a light for what it is.
