      Did you do anything to the pan head so the the front can lay all the way out
      Due to the fact that the beam will hit the ground before your pan does
      God thats why I love link pins
      And what hight are you going to roll this thing if the bags are just to lay it out when parked then thats a lot of money just for that
      you should try and make it scrap pan while rolling
      In front and back
      Looks good besides that
      With my trans lift I sit in the ass about as deep as you static dropped

      I haven't done anything to the pan head..yet. I plan to do something with it when I rebuild the front beam next winter. I am going for a dual bag beam.
      I am also going for a 2" tranny lift next winter. Can't take it all out the first season hehe
      Regarding the roll hight.. it will be low. maybe 1" higher than slammed. The reason for the air ride is to be able to raise it when something unexpected stop me on the road.
      The roads in Norway are VERY crappy!!!

      *Update*
      I have been working on the air control lately.
      Not finished...

      Stripped the engine and did some cleaning. A lot of work but I'll think the result will be ok.

      A BIG shipment from the states arrived today.

      Some goodies..


      More...

      Sebring sports exhaust to give the engine some sweet noise this season

      More engine parts and J-tubs

      G-Caps... red of course

      New rust red door panels
      After some hours in the garage today the engine is almost done.

      Recap.. it looked like this after the fire
