    It's about friggin time.

    "If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their Fathers conquered...I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies... The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs." -Thomas Jefferson

    OK, finally an update. It's not much. it's still pretty much a mock up but here it is. The front suspension is done, I'm gonna leave the servo on the axle for now at least.





    And finally a shot with the body held in place.



    This thing is gonna be a beast. I don't plan on comping with it so I'm using an old TVP chassis to drop the trans.Now I just gotta finish it up. I need trusses for the upper links for the 2 back axles but the lower links and shock mounts won't be a problem.

    I love that cab. The build is looking great

    Looking forward to a 6x6 outing with the few that are brave enough to attempt one of these behemoths

    I agree with quirk, a 6x6 expedition is in order. This is finally coming together nicely. Good job Rick.

    I just measured her up. 17" wheelbase, overall length of 27 1/4". My pajero fits comfortably where the bed would be.
