Just let me know when you want it dropped off, BIG BOY Grin Cheesy Grin

Just to update everyone else.  I visited the shop last week since my Build Plans were not quite finalized.  After seeing some very impressive Jeeps on the trail and in the shop (Ben's and Jeremy's) my initial plan was modified.  As noted previously, I was leaving some creative freedom to Jeremy and Max.  Not everyone was included for suggestions, like Max's post, since I would have to then sell the house for the build and live in the Jeep.

So what is the Tomb Raider's next phase going to be Huh Huh Huh

Here is a list of new components:
  • Hi-Line Gen-Right front and rear coners/fender to accomidate a stretch
  • AEV Hi-Line Hood
  • RockJock 60s Front and Rear, 5.38 R&P with ARB Lockers
  • Sway-Away Coilovers all the way around
  • Walker Evans Beadlocks
  • 40" ProComp Tires
  • Hydraulic Assist
  • Rollcage
  • Antirocks
  • And finally, some Custom Paint to theme it, for my son of course Wink

Well, I think that about covers it...

Your right Smokey but you have to love technology Grin  I wanted to stretch for stability and then coilovers came into play.  My son wanted Bigger tires, hence the 40".  Then needed to beef up the axles...  You get the picture.

So who's interested in the old parts Huh

I'm sure that I can't afford but maybe some left over grade 8 bolts, but post a list of all that is coming out and you might get some hits.

For anyone who is wondering, the build should start soon, remember this will be a rather large build (at least for me).  We have been waiting for several parts to come in to get started.  I am very excited about this transformation for my Jeep and will be out on the trail as soon as the build is completeGrin  This is not intended to be a mall crawler.  As I have wheeled with some of you already and plan on doing much more this year.

Again, all of the parts coming off will be available if you are interested, see Jeremy. Wink
