    Cool

    Definitely massive. Good luck Jesse!
    Traction, articulation, and gearing make a good off-road rig. Just a big lift, wide mud tires, and a winch simply do not.

    Something like that. Maybe 5.

    Got some more done tonight. Had to trim away the skid plate to make it fit, gonna add a piece of plate over that spot to protect it.

    Also got the interior back together. That's a lot of shifters.

    Nah, it is just a security system, since most people can only drive slushboxes, so this will send them running and screaming! LOL!

    Pretty much finalized my Atlas install today. Would have been a lot less involved if I didn't have a custom drivetrain and a tummy tuck flat skid.

    Marked and measured, tacked up some 1/4" steel to cover the cutout, protect the case, and provide a mounting point for the tailhousing support I got for the heavy-as-omg Atlas.

    That's a pretty big gap to bridge with mig wire... hehehe.



    More welding



    Ground down and beveled the front edge of the plates so they (hopefully) won't catch on (much) stuff.




    Final look with the support ring installed. She's a tight squeeze.




    I ordered my wheels today, and the rear axle rebuild kit showed up yesterday, so probably going to be doing the rear axle r/p rebuild tomorrow and maybe welding on some beadlocks next weekend?

    Thanks.

    Got the new r/p set up in the rear axle Sunday. I can tell Mitch wasn't particularly nice to it, which I love. Gently used parts are the best parts.

    I had to grind down part of the cover mounting surface that had some rock rash on it, found a couple bearing races that had spun in the journals that needed some attention to get the press fit back (just a couple smacks with a punch and some Loctite 620) and replaced the damaged ring and pinion with a good used one and new bearings. I haven't done a gear setup in a year or so so I was outta practice, but I managed to finish before the wife started asking when I was coming inside. Always key.

    I'll probably throw some new brake shoes on for good measure, and call that axle done until the link kits show up.

    Front axle next!

    Yep, looks sketchy, but that is usually "par for the course" when doing press work ;)

    It's been thoroughly "tested" and proven worthy! Rather surprised it was in as good of condition as it is! I THINK it has newer shoes / drums / hardware and has very little time on them.

    Looking forward to seeing them getting thrashed on again soon!
