Front lifted on the KM's, amazing difference offroad.



I got a little cocky...





Random wheeling.

A little cocky would appear to be a bit of an understatement. How'd you get out of that mess?

A strap, another vehicle, and lots of wheelspin. I could have made it, were it not for a ledge at the end of the mudhole that I was hitting with my bumper.

Update, new tires.
255/85/16 BFG KM2's, also I tore up the downey skid, will be getting a new one.

Here are some flex pics. Poor mans RTI ramp, scored approximately a 678- went to 25.5 inches lift, could probably go up another inch or two. 110 inch wheelbase.

The front will stuff a tad more, but not much. Pretty satisfactory performance for such an inexpensive setup. The rear flex is limited by shocks. I will be possibly getting some longer travel Bilstein 7100's with remote reservoir soon, along with extended brake lines and new leaves.

No new pics, but info.
I installed some Bilstein 7100 10" travel with remote resi shocks
Installed an Armor-tech offroad rear skid

Ordering OME dakars this week
Hopefully installing my shackle flip as well( had it for almost a year)
U bolt flip at the same time
new rear brake lines as well

Contemplating:
4.88's and ARB air lockers front/rear in the very near future

Sorry for the long response time, I forgot I had this thread. My mileage isn't that much different. I lost about 1 mpg on the highway at 60, but about 3 or 4 around town.

New parts since last update:
Icon 2.5 coilovers installed
OME dakar springs
new cb mounted up
quickfist for a mag-light
pistol mount for my daily carry


On another note, I tried the 7100's but they were about 1 inch too long. I would bottom out before I hit the bumpstop. I may be getting a mini bedcage, so I can mount longer shocks.

Had some new body damage the 4th of july, laid the truck over in a washout and drove it out on its' side. A few minor dents and scratches, but nothing to worry about. That's why I like white.

Droop with the 7100's is good, just can't stuff them very well.

Good looking truck, I vote for removal of the mud flaps and addition of rock sliders

aggressive to say the least. In the winter time, with the mud tires, I would venture to say downright dangerous. If you have the money, go with an ARB.

Oh, and sliders are getting ordered this week.

I've got a few small updates.
1. Sliders are in garage, will weld on this week. 4xinnovations 68" DOM with kickout
2. All-Pro Hybrid front w/ 3 lights-in mail, hopefully here this week
3. Pinion bearing is toast, need to replace
4.I am winch shopping, thinking maybe warn m8000 with synthetic rope?

and finally, I got an armortech high clearance rear bumper. This is the original prototype. A friend(NWitaco) bought it off of his truck(literally) and I bought it off of him.

Small little video, I now have 4.88's and ARB air lockers. I need to cut some long legs to attatch the sliders. This side bank is steeper than it looks here, and is very wet from recent rains. Truck WOULD NOT climb with the diffs open.
