    Re: Project Brisket

    I hate waiting and from this point things are going to be moving pretty slow. Third members SHOULD be here today/tomorrow ( 2 weeks late)...and then off to the shop next week. Seems like everything is on a 3-4 week build/ship timeline. My biggest decision left is coil overs or air shocks. I can't make up my dang mind.

    I did get some air compressors in:



    And some cutting brake stuff:

    Dont do the airshocks. Trust me. Ive ran ORI's, air shocks, and now coilovers and there is no comparison. Plus the piece of mind you get by not having to limp back to the trailers with a dead shock. It will happen eventually. Airshocks shouldn't even be anywhere near a build of this caliber, IMO.

    What did you end up with for cutting brakes? The 4 week lead time is a major bummer

    There are a lot of great options available. I looked at a lot of shops both local and out of state. Prices were all over the board and I actually ended finalizing my decision this last week due to mounting costs and other priorities.

    I'll be having Jesse Haines Fabrication build it turn-key.

    If you would pry your sorry arse out the Scottsdale Fashion Square once in a while you would know more about the BLM and the USFS (you do know those acronyms, right?).

    Yeah probably. Not in this buggy though. One of the down sides is the current backlog JHF has. I would expect the actual build to begin OCT / NOV. Unless i get really lucky .

    Look at the upside. Now you have more time to purchase the parts you really want.
