    Bullet Grill, Hella 500ffs, 3" suspension lift, 33" goodyear wranglers, Flowmaster 40 series, Cobra CB, debadged, Kenwood cd, infinity sound, 12" sub. husky tool box...
    My 2002 has a frowny leaf set up too. I am thinking of getting the All Pro Expedition Leaf set. Has anyone tested these guys out? And I already have a 3" lift, hopefully Ill get a nice set up in the front after this. But I haul dirtbikes in the summer so I need the extra strength

    let me know what you guys know

    Blacked out badges, wheels, tool box, grill, and BHLM. 2in lift with stock tires. So many projects left to do....
    I just bought a new leaf spring from General Spring for $150(not including shipping, which was only $28 to Maine). It was the best deal I found, for keeping the original height(2+1 leaves). They shipped fast too....just throwing it out there.
