Looks nice. What are the the matching things on the rear wheel wells?  Looks like a jack handle maybe?

Those are seat bracketry. I'll be pulling it out as I won't ever be putting seats in the back.

Makes sense. I donít see 37s fitting with the current ride height, maybe if you only plan to go straight!

Just testing you.  I am looking forward to a methodical easy paced build.  I thought the tires looked to be bald so had to wonder...after a closer look they are just very much street rubber.

Yeah this truck has never been off-road. Diffs and axles have original paint on them with not a scratch. Owner was just going to take it to Ecuador with him when he goes down there to retire.

I would expect the shear mass and size of the new rig to limit it a bit in comparison to Red off road, but more importantly it's a much better overall solution for all of the other things SqWADoosh enjoys and needs it to do well.  This rig should be the most comfortable of the three for daily driving and weekend camping trips while still being capable of handling the vast majority of difficult off road trails.

All depends how much body damage he is willing to take.
If you see it, its for sale.

I've had an 80 follow me everywhere except the rubicon (which I know he would have zero issues with). I'll be able to do everything I did with red with the exception of some really tight trails between the trees. Which I'm okay with losing those for what I'm gaining in drive ability, comfort, and space.

Nice pig. Pull the locker actuators, see how the guts look. They donít last long here in Washington if you donít regularly maintenance them. I have Avm hubs if you want to ditch the flanges

I've ran e-lockers before. Familiar with rebuilding them. Don't think these ones are going to be an issue any time soon as the truck was garage kept while in WA and a CA truck before this. Never taken offroad.
