You need to pull the cab in order to do the engine work?

looks very good with the color matched bumper. Has a more high end look to it! Great work!

For the engine work that I will be doing pulling the cab will make it easier in the long run. I'm going to be adding quite a bit of power so I need to change some of the engine internals. You have to pull the motor in order to do that because the lower cross member is to close to the oilpan to be able to do it in the vehicle. The little work that it will take to pull the cab is much better then reassembling the motor in the frame a piece at a time. I would much rather put the motor completely built back in the truck then put the cab back on. Much easier and cleaner in the long run.

Pic of the bumper finished minus the light bezel's which need some modifying for my lighting package. Also some pics from playing in the snow. Those little jeeps wouldn't have made it on their own. It was awesome out, mid 40's for temps we got up in elevation and had to play with tire pressure a little more but tow XL packages are definitely unstoppable. Great times, if you haven't yet you should really get our and use these bad boys.

No the Nomad is not for sale, the new owner was out wheeling it with me this last weekend. We are pretty good at building new ones though. Thanks on the pics, we will definitely have more soon with all of the builds, Howitzer, Mine "Sledge", the Nomad XXL, and a couple more being built shortly. By mid summer you should see a whole Gaggle of them out on an exploratory camping weekend. Last nights progress was a factory dual alternator install. Had the dealership turn on the circuit and I ordered up the mounting bracket with hardware, secondary location alternator, extended belt, and power cable. This way if I'm winching and I decide I want to listen to music, turn all my lights on, have an ARB fridge freezer, and possibly run a small village I can do it all at the same time. Sweet install, super easy.

OK, so now you got me interested. I was thinking about doing this too as my truck only has the 180 Amp alternator. So it is as easy as getting the bracket, the alternator, a longer belt and power cable and have the dealership adapt the computer? That is it?

Any more info on this swap? maybe via PM? Thanks a lot!
