Thanks! I didn't realize those were necessary. They just look like normal beams with the lower ears cut, adjusted, and rewelded. I can snag some this weekend. I want to go through the front end and install new Spicer 760 joints – my u-joints are 22 years old :whiteflagBumper looks great as does everything else, but where's the pics of the beams!?!?
I really had no intention of moving to a swing steering setup but Bobby at Solo (co-owner) started talking to me about pros and cons anyway. He told me they see the stock steering links flex when guys hit the whoops hard with 37s. You also get more bump steer through the travel cycle.Yeah I am more or less putting the same parts together for my 92. That was one of the things I cannot decide on and I also agree its expensive. I feel like the stock stuff will be fine for the speeds at which I will be going, likely very similar to what you will do with yours. I'll wait patiently for your post sand dunes thoughts and pics and such...
Looks great, I really like how those methods tuck up into the fenders at/near full stuff, makes me think the offset is actually where it should be on a stock fender opening truck.
It's been a while since I updated. I drained and filled the t-case with new fluid and did a bit more research. Turns out the pump does not run if the truck is the engine is not running (obviously) and that can cause a squealing noise.This is going to be a brand new truck before I know it! I guess 8 years of wheeling, 3 years of sitting, and very little maintenance will do this to the parts.

Share some thoughts here or in that thread if you have ideas.
It can’t be any worse than the cut up stock box that was in there.The solo engine mounts are nice, I really like mine. As also is the desolate gas tank skid.
I also run the fipk with the pre-filter. Zero issues with this setup. Obviously its a little susceptible to water/mud but I have not had issue either way.
Cool updates and pictures. I need to get out that way for a desert run some day
