I like it! Which tank did you get 23 gallon or the reduced size? How much body lift?

Thanks Joe! it's the 23 gallon tank and I have a 1" body lift.


Upgrading before I even get started.... the front shocks showed up today so here they are next to the rears. Fronts are 14" travel, rears are 11". now I just need to get all the brackets in place and get them on the truck.

Out of circulation for a bit, looking great B. Any plans to make special one off reservoir holders?

RuffStuff already makes some.

Why reinvent the wheel?

Don't distract him from making the things no one else makes, even he buys from RuffStuff.

And I wouldn't go with anything but when the choice is there.

Killer Bilsteins Brian...Can't wait to see them on your rig.

So if guns kill people, I guess pencils misspell words, cars drive drunk, and spoons make people fat!

Ok, so I finally got those shocks installed. I ran into an issue with my upper rear shock mount interfering with the hose on the shock. after some trial and error I ended up changing the end of the mount so it clears. all was good so I welded them on.

For the fronts all I did was grind down some of the lower shock mount on the duff arms for a little more tire clearance. It is smoothed and rounded now to help keep from cutting the tire but it still just hits at almost full lock so I'll probably adjust the stops a tad.

Interesting trivia about those radius arm shock mounts. Over the years we have seen some tires make contact with them and others don't. Because of so many tire and wheel options out there it's hard to know who will have to adjust the bumps and who won't. Early this year one of our Bronco's had a tire rubbing on the shock mount, We wheeled it like that once real hard with no issue then adjusted the steering stop after we got back.

Typically when running dual duff shocks, if you have a tire clearance issue you will find the back shock head will usually make contact with the tire before the mount. On custom applications like yours you have the option to play with it more and dial it in.

Cool build, fun to follow. Not sure if we have met, if you're a friend of Taskers we might have already.
