Nice build up thread man, looks awsome, I love the way 3rd gens look with SAS.
Rather have it and not need it, than need it and not have it.
There are only 3 kinds of people in the world, those who can count and those who can't. Which are you?

The next step was to install dual cases with stock gears in both. I wanted to keep the bench seat and still be able to slide it forward. That way my wife could reach the pedals if she wanted to do some wheelin. I modified the rear t-case lever to move it forward as far as possible, which was 5". I used some scrap rod that was laying around.

4WD-LOW, perfect fit, nice and tight. I'm not worried about it rubbing on the cab because of the Front Range Off Road crossmember (which is a very sweet product :thumbs: )

I formed this plate out of aluminum to make a tunnel for the shift rod. Made sure to make it all bolt on for easy removal.

All back together. It would almost look factory if i would of had a grey boot! The best part is i can slide the seat forward about 3"-4". Just enough for wifey to drive.  I'm not sure if thats a good thing tho :headscratch:

 :thumbs: Very clean job so far. I like how you have kept the truck in its good condition while at the same time doing the SAS and duals.

Thanks Rocks, its a daily driver and i think the cleaner it is the more reliable it will be. :yupyup:

I needed a front bumper for my winch but i didn't want to use the smitty off the old truck. So i chose marlins DOM front and rear bumpers.

The quality of the bumpers is awesome! Another sweet product from  :turtle: ! :thumbs:

Got the bump stops in finally! I made them out if 2"x3/16" wall square tube with 2 1/2" X 1/4" laser cut plates for the bump pads. I set them up so the springs go flat. There is alot more up travel available but i would rather loose a little flex than damage the springs by going negative arch!
