    Good looking build and something similar to what I am going to do. Been looking into Icon suspension. Here good things. Fox always comes up in convo too. How does your ride handle?

    Thanks bro. Don't think you can go wrong with either. Handles great! Especially w/o the sway bar. Adjuster on the coils is coo, but once I found my sweet spot I left it.

    what up homie! Dude thats a nice build! Lets go wheeling! @Spolar and I are doing Salton Sea to Joshua Tree this weekend! We do a trip about once a month or so.

    Hey man I need to do that tank mod. The transferflow doesn't work for me because it hangs too low. Can you elaborate on the fuel tank crossmember? I heard that 2nd gen doesn't have the crossmembers in the right place, but it sounds like you had to get a crossmember too? Did it bolt in or something?

    Any chance you would be willing to detail how much chopping you did to fit 37s?

    I ordered 35s, but I would really like to fit 37s.

    I updated the fuel tank post on the first page with part numbers. Unfortunately, I didn't take too many pics while doing the install to do a guide, but if you guys have any other questions, I can definitely help you guys out.

    Thanks man! Definitely roll with you guys one of these days when things settle down over here. I got too many crying babies and not enough hands.

    My truck has holes for the crossmember(4 on each side). I bet if there's nothing in the way to add the crossmember on the 2nd gen, you can probably just line it up and drill out 8 holes.

    Yeah man! We just chopped as much as we can at the body mount, hammered down the pinch weld and trimmed inside the front bumper a little bit. The alignment guy pushed the wheels all the way forward for max caster. I rub a little bit in reverse at full lock.

    It took awhile to get it together, but the finish product is solid!

    Have they thought about making one for the single? I don't have one, but definitely interested in getting the single and a mount of this quality looks fantastic, pricey, but worth the $$. @joonbug

    We definitely can if there is a demand for the single.

    We're working on a custom switch panel and skids at the moment.
