Nice man, you get the front bumper? I want one really bad but they are just a bit much for me to shell out, plus i want the rear to so it makes it even more but i cant wait to see yours.

& im kinda goin for the weekend offroader thing in the mountains and wherever to take some nice trips, so i wanna be able to have everything id need on a trail if i were to be alone to have the best chance of getting out on my own if something were to happen!

Thats exactly what im going for! sorta i think.

And i know dude..they are pricey! but well worth it. But alas...i am just diggin myself a hole as ill NEED a rear one now too haha and Tims Sliders...sheesh..oh well i can't wait to get it. Will help settle my Eibachs too.

After a few days of driving with my lawn trailer im really glad i ordered the AALs. Rear is defiantly lower now that its settled more. So that will be nice.

I still think im gonna go with the trailgear front and add a few things to it and the 4xinnovations rear, but if i were you id build some sliders! Its easy, especially if you can weld and if not just find a buddy that can and to make it easier just make em out of square tubing so you wont have to bend anything, it will just be cutting angles.

Yea the tube bumpers will be much lighter thats for sure lol

and dude i wish i could weld.. once my dads friend gets his shop up and running (aka our "car" shop) thats were we will have my supra his mustang and fairlane too. There will be a welder there and i will give it a go. I have never done it and really want to learn. Sliders i think will be next after my bumper tho for sure.

wheeler's leaf packs only give about 1.5" of lift. So they offer an aal if you want more lift.

EDIT: sub'd

Well i got in on the Wheelers 5pk group buy hoping to save money...alas that backfired but i already bought them so i stuck with them. I wish i had gotten Allpros Expos now tho really. Not that i dont like these, it just wouldve been easier and cheaper for me.


Also i got the AAL installed and leafs in the rightful places! like 15mins ago MUCH more lift, back is now higher then the front officially. I didn't put my lawn trailer on but i doubt it will sag much. The ride doesn't seem to have changed a whole lot either which is nice. Sad part is that i might have to replace my brand new 5150s as i think they might be too short now...i'll have to measure later. Still i am no happy with the look and ride Sept now i REALLY need bigger tires...ugh...just bought new ones last year...sheesh. I am not being economical about this at all haha here are some pics!

Rear is now at 39 1/4'' and 39 1/2'' if any one cares. I have no idea what stock height is so idk how much lift it is officially

Looks good man. If you decide on getting the expos, hit me up for the wheelers leafs and aals. I might be interested depending on how funds look at the time.
