Im a super newb when it comes to this off roading stuff. But im curious what the hydrolic ram does on the front axle? Push the suspension around when you have it in a bind?

the ram is referred as hydro assist which basically gives a boost to help out the steering when running bigger tires and rock crawling
without hydro assist is very hard to turn when the tires are wedge in rocks or trying to turn into a rock

Dude... I would tell you how badass that is. But you already know. Either way, nice work, as always. I imagine the 2nd gen is getting neglected with all this work on the 1st gen.

Thanks again for the M205. Can't wait to get it built. But, honestly... the 35's feel pretty good with the 3.69's. I mean, it's nothing like stock. I don't mind it at all though. At least in town and on the highway.

I haven't taken it up to the hills yet. On the slow stuff I prefer to throw it in 4-lo anyways and that gets me where I need to go comfortably.

The body stays! lol
Oh no, you should definitely get rid of the body. Only a little (a.k.a. a lot) more work and you won't even be able to tell it was once a frontier.
