I didn't think it through and just cut it straight across the top, not thinking that when I shortened the mounts - it would allow the bumper to follow the curve of the box.

    Tomorrow, A little sanding, some paint, and see where I want the exhaust to exit. Not sure if I want to just drill a hole in the bumper for the exhaust to exit - or if I want to half moon in the bottom and make it exit kinda like the rams.
    Looking good! I get what you mean by shaping the top edge. I would have done the same thing. DOH

    I had the r/t idling today and heard whistling (sounded like the "Andy Griffith theme! LOL) Anyway, it was coming from my catch can. So, I removed & took it apart. The upper gasket had be sucked in on one section. I cut two new gaskets out of thicker material and resealed all the fittings. The O-rings that came with it were hard and cracking too. I'll give it a day to dry before re-installing.

    Bought it without the shroud because I had already modded the one from the previous fan to work with my radiator.

    Pulled the front bars off the x brace , starter, well cause it only had the bottom nut, the top bolt was missing, removed the linkage, and converter bolts, and driveline , also drained the new fluid out, slow work but I’m in no hurry either

    Pat, yeah i plan on hitting the track this year. Still kind of undecided weather or not I'm going to run for points. First test and tune is this weekend. If the weather cooperates, I'll probably get down there Sunday and make a few runs.

    Hope to see you down there this year.

    Got the upper and lower control arms out, going to get the leafs out tomorrow and install the poly bushings, as well as sway bar and steering rack bushings.

    Got almost all my poly bushings installed, just need to do the steering rack, and front sway bar bushings. Probably going to replace all the power steering hoses too while I'm at it.

    A little update, after a week of driving. The ride is as good, if not slightly better. The handling is slightly better also. Keep in mind, I still have the stock Bilsteins, so with proper shocks, the ride and handling could be even better. I don't have the final drop numbers yet, as I've not had time to go back to my dad's shop to measure. I want to measure on the same surface to be as accurate as possible. Just by looks, it does look slightly lower than the WC control arms with stock springs.

    I am very happy with the decision, and would recommend it to you, if you are on the fence.

    After re-bushing the A-arms and installing 03 brakes I had the alignment done last Thursday. Yesterday started buffing out a couple years worth of neglected scratches. I noticed a bunch while the truck was up on the alignment rack.

    I'm digging the Mopar skull. Pretty neat. Did you design that?

    Project Maverick. I feel the need, the need for speed
