That's what I'm thinking not sure the cooler will fit by just bending the bracket down, I have a Warn winch plate and a Zeon 12S Platinum and It sure is a tight fit, not much room at all behind the winch plate. Your build is coming along nicely and looks great! Thanks for the info!

Starting on the ARB dual compressor mount and wiring. Mount is M.O.R.E. Offroad behind the back seat, wiring is a pain having to extend ARBs harness.

That looks awesome, curious how you ran the wire line from the battery into the cabin area? Appreciate the feedback

From the battery, across the cowl, through the firewall below the brake booster there is a rubber grommet for the clutch master cylinder, then along the sill plates to the compressor. Pictures show the routing.

Hood prop rods from Redline Tuning showed up today. Pretty easy install with good results, 392 hood is heavy but the rods work well.

Ordered the Rock Krawler 4.5 Adventure X Long Arm Kit which is still in proto-typing but should ship in 12 weeks or so. Fox 2.5 DSCs were ordered from Accutune today also and should show up in December. Still trying to finalize a quote from Dynatrac on the Elite 60/80 axles with 300M RCV front axle shafts.

Next project if and when my Next Venture Motorsports order ever gets here, front and rear bumper, rock sliders and full belly skid with UHMW slippery stuff. Thought I would get started on the wiring, not much room under the hood for anything. Using the Warn controller remote location kit and will be using Aux 3 and 4 to control the winch from in the cab along with having the winch controller plug also.

Looks like I am going to have parts trickling in for the next 4 to 6 months. Rear shocks showed up today, ordered Dynatrac Elite HD 60/80 with 300M front inners RCVs, 5:38 gears, 4.5" Rock Krawler Adventure X Long Arm, Fox DSC shocks this week. Now the waiting begins again.

I know you upgraded to the Apex power steering cooler and modified the pump what are your thought's on the power steering system with the 40's are people getting away with just that mod and running 40's?

Apex said the 40s" were about the limit for their system depending on tire manufacturer, we'll cross that bridge when I get there.

Next project while waiting for bumpers and skids from Next Venture Motorsports. Not much room for anything in the engine compartment but will see if I can shoehorn this in there somewhere.
