Wish I had taken a few more pics when i first started, but here are some more recent ones. Just finished up the driver's side suspension this past evening. I did not use the 106mm overload springs in the rear b/c I would not be putting the full weight of all the equipment, specifically ammo, in the rear.

Correct seats:

Fuel can holder bracket installed and rear stop light (original only had one, but I'm adding a 2nd one so I can have turn signals)

Image

Push start button reinstalled (right side) and headlight switch reinstalled (left)

Image

Rear Diff guard reinstalled

Image

Front skid plate installed (need to finish bolting to front bumper) still need to install middle (transmission skid plate)

Awesome! Where did find that data plate! Also, where might I be able to find those overload springs?
