    The Bomber is looking good. How do you like the CPT suspension kit? I'm thinking of at least buying a set of shackles form them to replace my homemade set at some point.

    The kit is great and is nice quality the ride height is about exactly like I wanted it to be.

    Well here is the bomber now. Thought I would throw up a pic of the stance and see what everyone thought about it. To me it sits a little low in the rear as I said before but this gives a better visual.

    Got the lines all made from the MC to the scout 2 prop valve. If you see anything I am doing wrong let me know!

    So correct me if I am wrong but when running this type of prop valve I just need to throw a tee inline and run from the front brake port on the prop valve to the left and right front brake? Don't need to worry about line lengths being equal or anything right? Brakes are not my forte. Also would someone want to share how they finished out there front brake lines when switching to scout 2 axles. Where you plumbed through the inner fenders what rubber lines you used etc. I have a few ideas on this but wanted some input! Thanks

    Well haven't had an update in forever have done some work to the scout but nothing huge. Got a set of Corbeau seats and am in the process of finishing up the brackets to mount those. I did manage to pick up a builder 258 to swap in when I get it overhauled and I also picked up an AX15 transmission to run behind it. Hopefully I can get a few of my take off parts sold and find a Dana 300. I think I have my factory rear seat sold so that will help pick up some odds and inns. I will post of some seat pics etc. one of these evenings.

    Couldn't see the stance pics. Could you upload so that I could upgrade soon.

    image.jpeg The rear is going to come up a little also, I changed the perches and the new ones were taller causing it to lower the rear so I have some shorter ones to install.

    Well I still need to upload pics of my recent battles, but I pulled the rear axle back out and got the perches fixed up so that the Green Bomber is now sitting level from front to back anyways, I have the lean to the drivers side still not sure if it is from body bushings or what yet but I am not getting to worked up about it until I get the body mounts replaced. Also got my new front seats installed and the brackets fabbed for them just need to pull them back out clean them up and get them painted. In the process of getting my back seat mounted and a few other things. I did manage to pick up a 258 I6 engine and also an AX15 Transmission, but now have also been offered an EFI 4.0 that would be kind of fun to put in it so now I am trying to decide what to do. Thanks for looking I will get some pics put up on the progress.

    If you get a chance, would you measure from the ground to the bottom of the rocker?

    Finally got all of my seats installed so that we can all ride in the scout together and the kids were pretty excited about it.

    Mine is at 13.5" currently. Now I'm really motivated to get some lift springs or do an SOA. Looking forward to the rest of your build.

    I am pretty happy with this CPT kit I didn't want a crazy high lift I really like the stance that it has.
