      Hey guys, Still hoping to finish this up but again , life and circumstances kind of stopped me. A war broke out here, riots.... gangs took over most of the country and no fuel around. Clearly we had to close the shop . Took almost 3 months for...

      I had to share a bit of coolness! I purchased all of the SS pin sets from SMG. But alas he did not currently manufacture the tailgate pins. I asked him and he mentioned that he thought about making them. I sent him one my hinges and Voila here...

      A BIG shout out to Georg@Valley Hybrids for supplying the ARB’s and setting up the new gear sets, providing the knuckle rebuild kits and Marlin double axle seals. The afternoon was spent cleaning and polishing my balls, normally an enjoyable...

      I have accrued some furlough time and got back on the project, shock mounts and steering stops are burned in and the housing painted. Next step is the fun part, getting the housing back under the 40 for good and start assembly of the knuckles...

      I was told by the wife I was spending too much time on the 40 and not enough time (aka $) on the house. So I have been on a cruiser hiatus. I have completed quite a bit on the list, still have a lot to do but most of the heavy lifting is done...

      The air for the turbo will be pulled from a grill that was made from an extra like the heater intake so it will look like the period era is with the rest of the truck.
