I just installed my Billy 5100s...

After the majority of a day and a severly busted thunb, it's finished. Looks great rides great. Next time it's going to the pros...

I will post pics as soon as I get through cleaning up the aftermath.

So there are the pics, I'm glad it's over that's for sure. Tips, unhook the sway bar from both sides to take out the struts. The front springs are scary to switch, be careful and use the right tools and make sure you know what you're doing or are doing it with someone who knows what they're doing. Don't put your fingers anywhere you wouldn't put your "rooster".

Tell me more about this dirty taco run... Borrego springs is like an hour from my house. Give me dirt or give me death...

Next I'm going to do the coil over conversion and an add-a-leaf, then 285's, and I should be done I think. Well are we ever really done???
