I've been cleaning up the chassis and axles in prep for the suspension install. I'm constantly surprised just how clean this Cruiser is. I used a little bit of pen lube on one side of the front suspension... it came apart so easy I skipped lube on the other 3 corners and it just zipped apart

The rear end is ready to hang springs, shocks and the swaybar. I hope to tackle that tomorrow.

One step closer to dropping off the bumper and sliders at powder coating. Tonight I knocked out the license plate frame. With a 33-34" tire the factory plate location would be nearly completely obstructed, no good. I looked hard building a lot disconnectable mount for the spare tire carrier which would affix to the carriers wheel studs and come off when you need the spare. Ultimately I bailed on this as I often have a Trasharoo, Maxtrax or Brai Grill on the tire. So that left the back of the Jerry can holder. I feel bad covering up the @TRAIL TAILOR logo but I'll some stickers to make up for it Jason.

I wanted to run an early 40 license plate lamp, I just dig them. I modified a non US Hilux plate frame with the light. It will overlap the plate by 3/4" but I test fit the Utah plates and it doesnt impact any visibility of numbers.
