So I ordered the same brake fittings from summit as I did on my last set of tons. The -3 braided line with a -3 to banjo and a -3 to 10mm female. Now on the -3 to 10mm female the cone would be pointing into the fitting and away from the factory toy hard line and this wont work.
Is fitting I need a -3 to 10mm female inverted fitting so the cone is point out towards the factory hardline?
Well I was going to work on bending some tubez for my buddies exo but the ram gets to the point where it applies pressure to tube and stops. I have cycled and bled the thing out more times than I can count. Have to wait until Monday and need to call jd2 about it. Anyway I boxed the hanger in, drilled out the shackles for 9/16 bolts, mocked up the light bar and burned the front hanger onto the frame. I also cut out a bunch of card board templates for gussets at the hanger and frame plates.
Oh also cut the drag link down and welded the bungs in.
Nothing crazy as I spent most of the day doing other crap but I got the brake lines all plumbed. Picking up my bolts needed for the springs and all I need to do is throw the irons on and move the light bar and I'm done for a minute. Oh and In mowed the yard.
Got everything plumbed back in. Re ran the assist lines and wrapped them with rubber hose on areas where rubbing might occur. Leafs are bolted in and ready to go. Need to mount the bumps and as soon as my brake fittings for the front are here I'll be done. If I can get my tires and wheels from my buddy soon this thing will be rolling. I hope it will fit in the garage :laughing: If it doesn't the exo gets cut off and ill do the in cab this winter.
Got the light bar relocated temporarily until I redo the cage and bumper. The diff studs are in for the spring perch. Brake lines hooked up all I'm waiting on now is wiring up the light bar permanently and my tires. In the mean time I'll fill the brake and steering fluid back up and bleed it all so it's ready.
Well got home late had to fix the jd2 which works like a dream now. Bending tube has never been easier. Anyway I had borrowed a bit to drill out my pitman arm so needed to do that real quick. My ram lines were back wards so I swapped them someone tell me if the passenger side line with the 2 fittings is ghetto? I think it is but it's what I have laying around.
OK been a while. Started a new job and was doing an exo for a guy on his truck. Now the runner is back in the garage and out from being under a tarp.
I am going to paint so scraped all the stickers off. The wife wants bright red, Maybe with a black exo?
Also going to wire up my rear facing led and my 4 LED rock lights, man i love ebay. I also got the fuse block I will run into the cab maybe straight onto the dash so I can see, but that might look hack I don't know. I am finally going to get my tail lights changed out with metal inserts and led trailer lights since the rocks just smash them out anyway.
Need some input on the cage. Redo the exo with 1.75" dom or just modify the 1.5" exo thats on there?
My other thought is doing a nice partial in cab and running the a pillar out through the cab above the windshield and then down into the fender?
Last is the bumpstops and rebuild kingpins with the spring eliminator setup from crane.
