Thanks! Good to hear you're satisfied with them. Ever since I saw them back in November I wanted a set, finally pulled the trigger.

Haven't updated this in a long time, oops...

Replaced the calipers
Replaced the plugs
Replaced the wires
Replaced the cone filter on my K&N intake

Installed the diff breather and e-locker motor guard

Installed my ScanGaugeII, what a cool piece of equipment! Very handy!

Ordered but not yet installed a set (4) of Bilstein 5100's.

Installed my Bilstein 5100's today! Gotta say, it rides like a dream after ditching the factory shocks with 134K on them.

Old & New (set them at the middle setting)



All setup on the truck

Supercharger is out at the powdercoaters right now. After that it's getting shipped to Magnuson for a rebuild then I'll be ordering the 7th injector kit & 2.2" pulley and installing everything.

Here's an update.

Supercharger has been shipped back out to Magnuson today for the rebuild (had to have them ship it back due to some unexpected financial issues) but it's out now and will be rebuilt and shipped back.

Other than that, i've been piecing together the parts for my lift. Gonna do Eibach coils up front and replacement spring pack for the rear. I need advice on which spring pack. Please chime in with info!

The plan is to run 255/85/r16's BFG KM2's.

Once I get the supercharger back, I will be installing it along with;

-Supercharger
-7th Injector Kit
-Doug Thorley Headers
-Valve Cover Gaskets
-Boost Gauge & AFR Gauge
-2.2" Supercharger Pulley

Then I'll talk to my buddy but I should be able to get her dyno'd. Hopefully I will be able to get some before and after dyno numbers!
