next mod was rims and tires and soon after was the lift because of major clearance issues due to my mistake
rims are pro comp steelies series 52 with bfg radials(got them for free)
fabtech spindles and aal by pro comp
daystar polyurethane coil spacers

more pics


juset had gotten back from 4wheel parts


ready to tear everything down for spacers and spindles


here it is with everything installed. sanded down and painted the hubs because the were rusty and the center caps held in moisture




rocked it with the bro lean for about a week because of the rain. looked pretty sick

next mod was to clean up the headlights because they were looking yellow. turned out nice and were noticeably brighter



next was a stainess steel skidplate to protect oil pan when wheeling



after seeing lots of reports on here and customtacos of broken lower ball joint brackets i decided to fab up some beefy replacements. thanks to chris(Tacorunner87) for the colled rolled steel he got for me



i cut everything up with a grand total of 8 cutting wheels for my grinder and drilled it out on my drill press with a stock one as a template. here they are all finished up.



next mods are moog ball joints up front to go with the brackets and stock replacement chromoly uca cross shafts. new set of coils. then ill install my icon aal pack and install my all pro brake line stay tuned lots more mods to come

here is how she sits today



next pics are from my first true off roading trip where i actually used it to where i knew i wouldnt break something but still ended up with bent uca cross shafts







after we got stuck we decided to shoot a little while with the 22s and shotguns


aftermath of the bent uca cross shafts all 4 tires are wearing like this because i have to rotate them so much

more pics tomorrow
