Woke up early to try again at sheet metal fabrication to fill the gaping holes in my tub for my disco seat install. This was 'take two' after a few fails last night. After some wasted efforts this morning, I'm convinced that I'm in over my head. The cutting and bending is not particularly difficult, the challenge is that if a cut or a Bend does not match up by 1 mm it throws off the whole install! Now begins the search for a metal fabricator that may be able to get this done before Uwharrie. Otherwise I may be out on the trails was some extra ventilation back in the rear of my vehicle

I have another project that I went and picked up a few months back out of a barn in Texarkana.. it is a 1975 DJ-5D postal jeep. I have it up and running. Had to have new floor pans put in and a new gas tank fabricated.. next step is going to be taking out all the glass and media blasting or sandblasting by someone or myself. Is the process difficult? I see that you have the Harbor Freight rig as what you used.

Work is being done at a snails pace but slowly coming along. Thank God that my Volvo 70 is my daily driver. As many know, I have a 200tdi engine that will be transplanted into my D90. So far I was able to get my lazy uncle to change the clutch. I was told the the timing kit will be put on today. Therefore, I can safely say that in 2-3 weeks both clutch and timing belt will be completed. After that the Garrett High Performance turbo intercooler will be mounted. The truck should be ready in about 2 months.

Yellow 94 is in the shop getting a new EMECU. Yay for me!

97 LE is in process of replacing exterior hardware with stainless and getting roof rack repainted. PO had taken it off at some point and there are light scuff marks where it was handled. Swapping out all exterior light lens covers. Gonna get it buffed and waxed when the sun comes back out.

So you went heavy duty (751) in the front, and medium duty (764) in the rear? Why mix and match? Are those 255 tires?

If the above is all correct, could you take a measurement in the rear to the top of your rear capping towards the back of the truck?

I'm getting ready to do my rear springs, and I've been trying to decide between the medium & heavy duty OMEs.

Looking for a measurement to approximately here:

This is what I am going with on the ST with SG front bumper and Warn 9.5...hopefully it will play out as nice.

I had the same setup with a sg bumper and 9.5 warn winch. I have an le with a bunch of crap on it and ran 255s. It worked really well.

Had hd shocks up front though.

Yeah I was just surprised he is running a stock front bumper, yet the truck seems to be sitting fairly level front-to-back.
