Thanks for letting me bug you guys for a few minutes. That truck is pretty impressive in person. It also reminds me that I need bigger tires on my truck!

I'm not sure 40" tires and a Hemi go together very well. However, 37's might be an option...

We can't wait to get it dirty either. Howie pulled out of the shop under it's own power last night. Got it all loaded up to go get gears done. Got a lot of looks going down the freeway. It feels awesome, fired right up and with all of the emissions components intact it is so clean it sounds like wind through willow trees and nature and stuff. LOL, so far so good on the happy motor but time will tell as to whether the DPF in the bed will be able to deal with the bends or if everything will just plug up. Here are some pics for your viewing pleasure. The list of components going on for gearing are, Nitro gear 5.13's, ARB air lockers front and rear, Dynatrac Free spin kit, and RCV's with the passenger side disconnect being deleted. Going for as much strength as possible. I realize the 4.88 gears would have a larger pinion but the 5.13 pinion is still absolutely gargantuan.

DPF should be fine, look under the passenger door on just about any newer class 7 truck. You may need wheelie bars on that rig. From the photos it looks like a very professional ( factory ) build. nicely done.

Well it has been a while, here are some updates. We are down to the wire working on some of the more critical survival armor. We leave Friday afternoon for Moab to go ahead and debut this build at Easter Jeep Safari. Anyone can wheel a Jeep, Foolsize is where its at. We are also trying out some new DIY bumper plates that have an aluminum adapter with steel top plate so if anyone would like to try building their own light bar mount on the AEV bumper they can. Rear bumper is a Mercenary high clearance with the Baja corners, it is completely tied into the frame at the front portion so I could literally drop the whole truck on it and it will protect the rear. We also have a rear winch mount skid that fits on the frame in the rear taking up the space where the spare tire went, we are loading it with a Warn Zeon 12-s Platinum so we don't have to reach in and flip the engage/disengage lever. The rock sliders will be headed to powdercoat in the morning and should be fully welded on the truck tomorrow evening. Finishing up some of the tubes to kick it out away from the fenders. Working on getting some lighting set up so I can see off to the sides for the big drops in Moab, nothing is quite as fun as wheeling at night in Moab because the drops are really big and you can't always see them.
