    Nice build I'm a big fan of ORI struts.

    I like the 4 link front and the modifcations to the frame. You mentioned new engine.... Plans for such? What would you put in it?
    Also, how did the cut breaks work for you?

    Thanks

    I'm loving the ORI's

    It was worth all the time messing with the frame both front and rear to be able to have it sit where it does.

    As for new engine it will be a 6.0 or 6.2. Unless I find a deal on a something all AL like a L33 or LS. Followed by an auto and an Atlas X

    The butting breaks are great once you get using them. Sometimes its just that little extra that can help so much

    My biggest surprise with them is in wet sloppy conditions when in a rut to pull yourself out. Sure its nice on dry stuff and rocks for positioning too. Also in snow or either condition when needing to turn up or down hill in an off camber situation. I'd put them in again in a second, and wouldn't wan to be without

    ARB's make the cutting breaks doable but the atlas and ARB's is going to be "the cats ass" I believe

    Shiat!!! I had no idea this was going on.. All i ever saw was Cutting brake and never bothered to open up this thread!..

    You've done most of what i am planning on doing other than i started with the motor first

    Most definitely will be going ORI's.. It's just such a clean way. When you take into account costs with straps, sways, tracks, bumps, etc.... The cost variance does diminish when compared to say C/O's...

    Was it a clearance issue not going 3-link in the front? I am not sure i will be able to "Effectively" run 4-link in the front with the size of the hemi in there... Would also love to get some specs from you on the axles, price, shipping, etc.... PM if you want

    Cheers,
    RIP OD, YOU'LL BE MISSED.... BUT that's OK 'cuz you've been REPLACED !!!

    Yeah the thread title is a touch deceiving in hindsight

    You'll love the ORI's, so simple clean and very adjustable with just a nitrogen tank.

    It was a clearance thing along with I was going full hydro anyway cause of the big push forwards. The TB wasn't going to play nice with the ram on the axle and trying to keep it low.

    The hemi could be shorter and give you more room maybe being 2 cylinders shorter. The 6 with exhaust wrapped around the oil pan comes a ways forward

    Axles are Ruff Stuff housings, 14 bolt FF spindles on the rear, ARB's with Yukon 5.43s and 4340 lock rings and Izzy locks, All 35 spline, Solid inner and outters and Yukon SJ's up front. Yukon N Cases, Ballistic Arms and PSC full Hydro

    Shipping is not bad 3 or 4 hundred per plus the crate to a Forward air terminal. I used YYZ once and a DTW one for the other axle. They were built in AZ by Andrew at LetzRoll Offroad. He'll price you out whatever you like. They are comparable to ordering a set of Rock jocks or any other aftermarket axles price wise.

    Well Pitbull was going to raise prices again and I wanted no part of that

    So I ordered the new rubber that everything was built around and got them mounted up on the Racelines that have collected dust for a year

    The 37 Maxxis CC's have been an exceptional tire. Not sure I'll sell them or keep them around. Depends who's looking for a set, tons of thread. Only reason for the change was the sizing of the PBR vs Maxxis, and I really think they are a better tire for me in the conditions we run in Ontario

    Some trimming done, bit more to do

    I had mine all tacked in 3 link/Panhard/crossover and ran into the same fitment issues, as mentioned in post #84, when I decided full hydro was on the menu and I wanted it low.
    mine is SBC
    tri4 lets you get it low enough tha when the tie rods kiss the frame the upper link mounts just clear the rad but I had to add another 4" or so to my wheelbase over where it was 3link, 111" now

    Reverage must be at the limit now as he removed the frame and rad as his obsticals image how low it would look without the body lift in it
    Reverage has set the bar IMO

    Question...

    When you back half'd the frame, what is the current width of the rear frame rails now, inside to inside? What specific tank did you go with and the mounting brackets?

    I was looking at back half kits and setups and am always running into tank fitment issues. I also don't want to put it in the back as i want to use that space for tool/cooler storage. I like what you have done with the floor however i am just wondering how that fit all together.

    Thanks

    Apologies for missing this when you asked, forgot about the thread for a while it looks like.

    Current rear frame width inside to inside is 32.5"

    The tank is a RCI. 2161 I think is the pt#

    Mounting Bracket is from ATX customs if memory serves me correct.

    I ran 1/4" frame rail to frame rail as a skid for the tank. Then a box was built and set in through the tub and mounted to the 1/4" below. I can snap pics of anything you want more detail of.

    and some pics from Fall colors run

    Looking good! Ironically enough, since my inquiry in June i bought Steve's yellow Rubi that was on sale here. As a result, i won't be building my HEMI TJ anymore so won't be changing up any back half any time soon!!!

    Thanks for the details though

    Mmmm... Gourmet Camping!

    Awesome picture!

    How are the ORI's holding up?

    Have you done any water/mud use with them? Any sign of wear and tear?

    Are you up to 42's now?

    ORI's are holding up great. I've gone through a tank of nitrogen playing with them and couldn't be happier. The new STX's story has it are even better

    They see a lot of mud and water. We live in ontario it seem unavoidable. I don't run mud holes for fun and they are holding up fine. Nothing leaks or anything if thats the concern.

    The Pitbulls are 42 15 17 yup
