Cool, I'll check out the website in a bit.

Mine? NOTHING! If it's warm at all tomorrow I hope I can get my new top put on. After that I may comp cut it, swap out the motor, bore out the heads and put leaf springs in the rear. But only if its warm.

Put my new Viking Fast Back top on. I'm still debating on whether or not it's really all it's cracked up to be. I plan on running it for the next week then report back.

If you can do a complete side shot I'd like to see how it works. Will it cover a rear spreader bar on my roll cage?

They say it won't work with a rear spreader bar like the one in the Rock Hard cage. However, I was reading on ROF that a lot of guys made it work.

BRB - I'll go snap some quick pics...

I would like one of those viking tops a friend of mine can give me a good deal on one but they only come in black
and I want tan
he did say that he can get them in diffrent colors but I would have to find at least ten people to buy the one color

so I'll just have to order up some tinted windows for my top

Yesterday, I finished the install of the in-cab controller for my Rancho 9000's. I've been running the shocks on five because it was such a pain to adjust them. You can really feel a big difference going between the two and nine settings. It now rides a lot smoother on the street (set on two), can't wait to get it out in the dirt to see if it makes a difference.

The install was pretty easy; I mounted the compressor on the fender well (see pics). Routing the airlines was easy; I ran the front one up the differential vent hose and the rears along the brake lines. I was able to install the fittings on three of the shocks without removing them. I had to take the right rear one out to install the fitting because of the exhaust pipe being in the way. I mounted the controller to the console inside and ran the wires/air lines through a grommet in the firewall. I'll do a full write up on it after I get a chance to really test it out.
