    Just dropped the H3 off at the dealer for the blower motor recall (previous owner had not done it),as well as the electrical issues I have been having with my dome lights and mirrors.

    Also, I snagged a used Rancho kit off of Craigslist about a month or so ago. Only had them ship me the front (saved a lot on shipping), I will be doing a SOA in the rear. The kit needs to be re-powdercoated, it's missing a lot of the bolts (probably just going to go to a fastenal with the list), I'll also be notching the front drop crossmember to have better access to the steering rack. It came with some crappy shocks, I'm going to end up ordering some fox shocks with the specs I want for the kit.

    Mutaint, dealer called this morning, said there was a fault with the BCM, they are going to replace and reprogram it. It is just over $800 +tax to do so lol

    Maybe, I haven't actually check the plug in the firewall, however I did run water through them and they drain as they should. Who knows what the previous owner did and what not. As long as this works I'll be happy. I did check for signs of water in that area and couldn't find any.

    Re: cgalpha08's build!!

    Picked up the H3 from the dealer, everything works now. One of the dome light fixtures is physically broken, so a new one has been orders, otherwise it all works!

    FYI BCM replacement and reprogramming (at least at my dealer) was $842, just to give others an idea of what it would cost.

    The funny thing is that they left a note in the vehicle offering me 20k for the H3, that made me laugh lol.

    Full disclosure, 4speed is doing this build. Right now the axle is built, currently gathering parts for the next stage of the build. Here are a couple of axle pics

    Dont know about the knuckles other than they are flat tops. It's a Dana 44 with 3/4 ton axle shafts geared at 4.88. With 37s it should put me in a sweet spot for highway driving and crawling

    Well the SAS is all done, here are a few pics





    New tires have arrived (thanks for the hook up Mutaint) Pro-comp extreme MT2 in 37x12.5x17




    Currently waiting on wheels, which are back ordered 60-70 days. I had received shipment of 4 of them, however 3 of the 4 were damaged so I am sending them back and waiting for them to come back in stock.
    I am going with these, Mamba M14.


    Some random poser shots

    I also test fitted the 37s. I only have 1 wheel as the rest are backordered, they are Mamba M14's. I went with them because they are fat 7 spokes like the OEM ones i have now.

    Everything clears just fine, I'll have to trim the front bumper wing for clearance to fully stuff the wheel.

    Re: cgalpha08's build!!

    Trimmed the front bumper, makes flexing and wheeling way better lol I had gone to the badlands once already and was very limited in what I could do, wasnt sure how much the bumper would need to be trimmed, got plenty of clearance now.

    Also went on a breakin trip for the SAS, more than the other week, performed phenomenally well.
