    Jack's 2007 Chevy Build

    I have a 3" WFO sas kit on my 2002 duramax and the drag link barley kissed the oil pan at full flex. My solution was to add 1/2" more pre load to the coil overs. This gave me the clearance I needed and I will eventually up grade to a adjustable King bump can and ditch the poly bump stops.

    The WFO kit is awesome. I have no complaints, it is however labor intensive to instal. I have looked at the BDS kit, and it seems pretty nice also. I know they have a good no questions asked warranty and the install seems pretty straight forward. It just depends how far down the rabbit hole you...

    I got the t case in with and was able to measure for drive shafts this week. Reno Driveline Service had them done in a day! Since I lost my aftermarket t case brace with the stock setup I will be building a support bracket and an additional cross member to support the rear of the case and keep...

    Once we got to a good sledding hill I decided to spin some donuts in 4 low to clear some snow. Bad ideal...... 4 low in 30-36” of snow spinning donuts and pop goes the front drive shaft. Thankfully I keep a spare in the truck. I was able to swap it in 15 minutes. The problem is the np263hd...

    Been awhile since I’ve updated the build. I’ve been working a lot and the truck has been sitting. A few weeks ago we got an above average amount of snow here in northern Nevada. It took me two days to dig out so I could get the truck out of the garage. That weekend I went up up in the hills...

    Not much to update right now. I think I have good spot to mount the compressor up under the bed towards the front. Hoping to pull the trigger on my Arb’s soon so I can get this thing re- geared. Also planning on some rock sliders soon. Went up in the hills a few weeks ago to cut out Christmas...

    Well now I’m not sure about that location Jack 😂. I definitely want to keep it as safe and clean as I can.

    This is exactly where I have my switch panel mounted, about the only free real-estate under the hood on these things lol

    I spent some time under the truck on a creeper yesterday and I think the old spare tire location should work out. For now I don't plan on running an auxiliary tank. I'll have to mock it up, but I should be able to tuck it up in the crossmember and put a nice cover/splash guard on it to keep it...

    I'm having a hard time trying to figure out where to mount my ARB compressor. There is no option under the hood as there is no room for it. I also don't want it in the cab, because I don't want to listen to it or run lines in. My options are: 1: Mount the compressor somewhere in the bed and...

    For a truck with no sway bar this thing handled my toy hauler pretty good. It’s around 12k loaded with roughly 1400lbs of tongue weight. Luckily I won’t need it to tow that heavy any more. The new 3500 with the 10spd Allison is a freight train. It’s main purpose now is off road adventure...

    I had some parts show up earlier this week 😎 Nitro 4.56’s and and Arb compressor and locker manifold kit. I’ll be collecting parts this winter and hopefully have it done soon. Front and rear Arb’s will be coming soon. My power steering pump feels like it’s getting week so I think a PSC hydro...

    I swapped to 8x170 bolt patter. I am running 1.5” adapters in the rear from Fred Goeske (wheel adapter.com). Made from Timken Bearing steel and rated for 80k lbs. With the 1.5” added width in the rear my track width is now equal to the wider front axle. I didn’t want custom drilled unit...

    Man your truck was so nice! The Burb is awesome too. Glad to see you swapped everything over. Saw some pictures of the roll in Moab, such a bummer! That dmax swap will be fun!

    No I was running a different 16x8 wheel with 285’s when the truck was stock. I’d imagine you be ok with a small front bumper trim with a 9” wide wheel.

    Thanks you Sir! I'm actually in Wellington so we're pretty close! The flat bed would be awesome. I've been eyeing a norweld tray bed but will probably end up with a Four Wheel Topper Project M eventually. Your truck looks great! We should definitely meet up for a run some time.

    We also took a drive up to Duck Creek Village and broke track up to Strawberry Point before heading out to the family ranch. We had weather earlier in the week and the road up to the ranch can be dangerous if wet. We headed up early in the morning while it was frozen and back down before it...
