The PTO has been sold to finance a 24v Warn XD9000. I don't have the fab skills to keep it and put an ARB on.

Zepp! I love the Idea of the Trail Gear Sliders. Those are nice. I can get my buds to weld them on for me.

The only tricky part was cutting the legs right. Tacos have a straight frame so once you've done one the other 5 legs are going to be the same, but 60s have a tapered frame. What I did was mock up the sliders very carefully with jackstands and do a lot of measuring before I cut.

Default Lift!

So Getting ready for Thursday. I'm taking measurements for a good before and after comparison.

Front Right.

Driver Door

Driver (Right Side) Rear

Passenger Left Side Rear

Passenger Left Side Front


Up front I am at 24.5 inches both sides rear is 22 driver 23 passenger.
The arb sits up another 4 inches, but that could also be the curb so I'll get better measurements.

Getting excited.

DANG! Now you need bigger tyres to make that look right!

Oh yeah, there's these little burgers called sliders you might want to include in your ARB fridge...

They're on backwards, but maybe so it's more like a step for the rear doors?
