MAKING of a LEGEND Part 3 – The Home Stretch
Day 4 of our Gladiator build was a busy one that took us down the home stretch toward its completion. To kick things off, Buddy began the long process of mouthing our new 40×13.50 Nitto Trail Grapplers onto the set of KMC Machete beadlock wheels that we had brought down with us. As he was doing that, Ricky started cycling of our King coilovers and bypass shock suspension system to maximize travel before zipping bolts on and burning everything in. With the hopes of answering a few of the questions that I’d been getting all week, I asked Mel to share some of his thoughts regarding the pros and cons of Dana UD60 axles. Working well into the night, we got the rest of our PSC ram assist steering installed, front and rear JE Reel driveshafts bolted up and our computer programmed for all the changes we’ve made using a Tazer Mini. Last but not least, we were able to get our Gladiator standing on his own feet again and just in time for us to head out to Jeep Bash. We hope you enjoy and hope you’ll tune in again to see the finishing touches.
