Wow! You certainly aren't messing around there. You might have more Jeep packages sitting there than I did at the peak of my build. It's coming along nicely though.

I'm curious to hear how you like those Falcon shocks (you are installing Falcon shocks, right?).
Thank you. Yes, Falcon shocks and stabilizer. At this pace will another 30 days before its rolling.

Well for the $65 I decided to get the truss even though I don’t really need it. I don’t regret it but much more work added to the build than I expected.

Remove UCA bracket
Prep axle for welding
Tack weld truss (slow not to heat too much)
Weld out truss. This is sloooow, I’m scared to overheat axle tube so taking 2 days to weld a little bit at a time. Attached are a few pics.

I hope your build is going well. I think many of us are interested in how those Falcon shocks are performing. Can you give us your opinion yet? There is a video from Extreme Terrain (Ryan) in which he is shown how the Falcon shocks are assembled at Teraflex in Utah. Great quality control!

The Falcon shocks likely don't yet have nearly the aftermarket support that the Fox shocks do (just look at how many race teams use Fox). That's what ultimate kept me from trying them out.

Still, I'm curious to see how you like them.

I agree Chris. And, OME, Bilsteins, Fox, etc. Have already proven themselves with all the abuse they get put through. These Falcons look promising, but we are all waiting for tests and reviews before we can trust them. Time and those courageous enough to be first will tell us. 😎

Totally agree! Someone has to test them out! I know a ton of the JK guys are running them, but I have yet to see someone put them on a TJ or LJ yet.
