    Now that my wobble is fixed, and everything else checks out tight and with no driving issues or noises, I went ahead and upgraded the stabilizer. I opted for the thru-shaft FOX setup.

    Quigley Trac Bar Mount UPGRADE!

    I didn't do anything that would change any of your equation. So, if that does apply, I am still in the game.

    Who/Where did you get the extras from? ( PCM/ wiring adapters, brackets, etc ...)

    Death Wobble FIX: The center mount bolt on the trac bar was worn pretty bad, and the frame holes that that it went through were waller'd out worse than a Rhode Island Red. So, I drilled the holes out to 5/8'', bought a 5'' Grade 8 bolt and drilled it out for greasing the 3/4'' x 5/8'' x 1 3/4''...

    Those shackles are a 12t, and a 13.5t. Just trying to be somewhat prepared for whatever.... I am running a 12k winch. Hence, the many snatch blocks.

    Thx, David. While building it, I was envisioning being down in a revine or something, and getting cable pulled by a huge winch truck. I wanted it to be strong enough to handle that. I think I got close. Same for the rear. My Welder/Fabricator Buddy also thought it should handle a recovery of...

    Got the onboard air system finished up, installed a Renogy DC to DC charger, and really beefed up the rear hitch with additional frame mounts and added 2 more receiver tubes for recovery points and/or a bike rack. Kept the compressor to be easily removable/portable, and I have a 5 gallon tank...

    Finally got this bumper/winch project wrapped up. Besides fabbing some serious mounts for the frame rails, I really beefed up the OEM flange welds and the winch plate, and used Grade 8 hardware on pretty much everything that matters. If pulling hard, along with a snatch block, I will use a...

    Yep. Like you and most others on this site, I want an original and one of a kind rig. Not a cookie cutter. E="Abitibi, post: 2966962, member: 15552"] Saw your post on FB earlier, nice score! Its fun to figure something else than the typical Aluminess for us DIY guys :) Sent from my SM-G973W...

    Scored a Go Rhino bumper for 2 hundy. In my true fashion, it was a little buggered up, but I massaged it to where I am content. It came off of a Police Ram P/U down in West Palm Beach, in which the officer did a Pit Maneuver on some jerkwad that he was chasing. Anyhoos, it's mine now! #WinchSoon

    LKQ. It's rare that they get them, so I try to pounce when I see them there.

    Finally added a driver side window to the house. Took the window and most of the interior trim out of an ambo at local salvage yard, for fab-trimming out the window and the new bed box. Only $75 for the whole pile of stuff. On a previous trip, I scored the turbo off of it for about $75. I have...

    AmboLander Update: Finally did away with the main board and put in a couple of marine breaker panels, added a curtain blind thingy (Home Depot), a diesel heater, and most recently pulled my bench seats and built a Twin/Queen bed box with hinged flip overs. It is about 74'' long, and is quite...

    Hey David, I have been running my Livewire for nearly 5 years. I dig it. I have a 40hp Tow tune from Innovative Diesel and a 60hp Daily from DP Tuner. Dp Tuner said it was formulated for a van that was in The Cannonball Run a while back. I like them, but will like them better once I go to...
