Very cool. What size tires are you running?

The front axle and steering box are very similar to my setup. My front axle is a hpD44 it if a Ford with Chevy outers and retubed for Waggy axles. I also used a steering box out of a late 70's Bronco. Mines linked however.

The color is cool as well.

Killer. The Google photo links aren't working for me, but what I can see is pretty badass. I wish the new sx's were true to size, but I bet they are still killer on pnw and east coast trails.

Wish my axle was a retubed HP. Would probably cost about as much as switching to a 60 for me to do it at this point, but maybe I'll have the gear to do it one day.

Have not been on site for a few years. Doing some more major mods. Installing Sm465 4spd and a 203/205 doubler set up. I found that to do this I needed to have a stock flywheel machined to fit inside the 2.8 bell housing and drilled to accept a 2.8 clutch set up. Do to the weight of the trans and tranfer case set up I am building a cradle to mount every thing on that will also be tied to the engine so the bell housing does not have to take all the stress.Image

Bumper is made by Northwest Trail Innovations Battleground WASH. It is a first gen Toyota that I made custom mount for. Just a flat plate off of both frame horns.http://nwtrailinnovations.com/

I have had the sm465 203 205 set up in for awhile now. Biggest hurdle to the project was having flywheel made. Used a stock one and had the face machined flat to take off the step , and had to remove every thing that was farther out than the od of the ring gear. Also need to change to a jeep Cherokee clutch master cly to get the correct bore to make slave push far enough.Here's a video at the ohv area near my house
