    I've got the 4 leaf TSB springs in the back. I went with 2.5 on bilsteins bc I knew I was about to add weight with bumper. I'm gonna ride it a few weeks and remeasure but I'm pretty close to level now. My plan is that if I'm still nose high then I just need to buy a winch! Haha

    Forgot to post pics of the finished bumper. Primed and bed liner on it. If and when it gets dinged up I'll look into powdercoat.

    [​IMG] it's been a while since I've been on tw but just added a new winch to my rig. Got it as a wedding present from a good buddy. Any input on moving the control box? Should I mount it higher?

    Just had a chance to remount my factory fog lights. Bought 1.75" tube brackets from ballistic fabrication. Had to splice an extra 12" of wire to make them reach. ImageUploadedByTapatalk1354242484.238439.jpg

    Finally decided to do something about my nose high rig. Ordered 1" blocks from low range off-road and got it done today in less than an hour. Very easy to do. The only reason I went with block not aal is I already have 4leaf tsb springs.
