We ordered it on June 1 and got it about 3 months later.  They say that it normally takes 60-75 business days

Drivelines Front & rear installed. Brakes bled. The Front rotors are going to have some serious stopping power. Put front tires on. Aliened front end steering. It's getting real close. Working out shock mounting issues. Going to install shock towers to solve some interference issues.

If I can't build it, then it's something that should be bought.

Solved the front shock issue with Front Shock Towers. Also added duel shackles for the front. Put heavy duty shackles for rear. Got rid of the "stock" sheet metal shackles.

Today We worked on Rear shock mounts. Went with through the bed mounts. #1 it was a whole lot easier and stronger than wielding on to the axle tube and using the stock upper mounts. #2 I already had the towers and they were just the right size. #3 And most important, Timothy likes it and is happy with the way it turned out.

P.S Thank You Gil for the shock donation thumbs-up
