Yeah well there's this new thang called a Titan Diff Swap, maybe you've haven't heard ? :) I think its a great way to go w/o chopping up your x

Thanks for the compliments - Yeah when there's some gearing for the Titan dif no need to change until then and then some Bigger tires YEAH!

There is no better photo than the one of your rig climbing that big a$$ sand dune. I love that shot.
X2

I also like the one of his X at the beach -

He whipped the dirt.... he whiipped the rocks..... he whipped the sand.....

...... now he's idlin' at the shoreline, trying to figger out how to give all that water a good whuppin'!


I did notice, however, that there's a STOP sign posted on the farthest pier out in the water....

.... so, someone really has to TELL you guys you have to stop at the waters edge???

(...wow.... I'm impressed!... you guys are really radical down there!..... I wanna go 4-wheelin' with YOU guys! [we'll take YOUR rig, though!]}

Nice looking rig - be sure and post some pics with the Schrock add-ons.

-whatever

LOL, that's actually to tell you to stop from going any farther south down the shore as it's a protected coastal preserve from that point on.

Update on Progress: New Stuff

This is premature as I wanted to be all finished and powdercoated and ready to roll before posting any picts but Irwin (xterra3100) was asking me to post some of the latest mods of my rig. Yes, I know it's a dirty rig - I've either been on runs every weekend or wrenching or working my @ss off at work. I'm behind on a lot of stuff!

I'm waiting to finish some welding on the bumper: extending the plate steel on the supports to the brackets to compensate for the BL and a custom brush guard for the PIAAs. After that gets done the whole lot including the full skids and diff cover will go to the soda blaster and then the powdercoater. Here's the picts:

New Wedco Water Can


Bluetop with Battery Install Mod. Thanks Bigdaddychia!


Unpainted muddy Sliders


Custom welded for 3" BL with boxed gussets


Unpainted SWs bumper with 580 PIAAs, tow hooks and Smittybilt 8K lb winch (Synthetic winchline and Hawse fairlead coming soon)


The whole enchilada in its dirty glory. Notice no BL gap on the bumper.


Suspension stuff coming next!
