    I'm looking to do that very plywood floor thing and puma location in my 80. Where'd you pickup non-warped 1/2" Baltic Birch? Home Depot let me down pretty hard last time.

    are the tie rod ends new?
    do they mount differently between the 100 and 200 series?

    there was a 200 series owner that had his done with the bend facing forward and it hit the inside lip of the wheel at full lock.

    TexAZ, your correct they were put on the wrong side and therefore the curve is forward not backwards. I just tested clearance and I only have about 1/4 inch between tie rods and the wheels at full lock.

    Thanks for pointing that out, bummer that I now have to do the whole dealer thing again.

    Sorry man, just saw another set of tie rods that looked suspect.

    At least you caught it quick.
    Next time you are in Phoenix bring the truck. Would love to see it.
    Came out amazing

    Yeah. I was just here for a quick meeting. I want to do a trip out here and do Crown King and some of the fun spots. The reality is, if I come out this way by truck, it’ll probably be the Tundra. Seems like lots of fun go fast spots out here.

    YEP, our bad - very sorry this happened! When you get here at 7am, we will attack it immediately and get the ends swapped and realigned while you have a cup of coffee. The tech is already prepped and will be ready for you.

    Home Depot. Found a pretty straight piece, and had them cut it at 5ft, so I have a 3ft piece leftover.

    This week has been pretty eventful around here, OME springs installed. The Bushwagon is no longer slammed. Picked up some new to me rims, and she is off to get new rubber on all 4 corners at the moment. And she done little flexing....
