    This is it's first time "offroad" a couple weeks after i got it

    279779_10150719536100046_8021211_o.jpg

    This was the day the bar got put on. I designed it on paper and a friend of a friend welded it up for me. he didn't have a pipe bender, so he had to weld all the pieces together.

    March 2014 was my first real wheeling experience. I learned alot this trip..... including learning to just follow the ruts, being confident in my truck, and how/when to use my locker :anonymous:

    20140301_141117.jpg

    don't try to straddle, just follow the ruts because you end up there anyway.

    Then finally got a lift! I installed it in January of 2015. 5100's set at 2.5" with stock coils. No install pics, but this was taken shortly after. Still had stock 265/70/16 Rugged fails :rolleyes: ....got some half used 285/75/16 BFG KO's about a month later.

    20150131_133033.jpg

    Ran it that way until August 2015 when i got new coils, used SPC LR uca's from a tw member, 3 degree rear shims, and the u-bolt flip kit. I cut out the old uca bushings, cleaned the uca's up, repainted, and rebuilt them with new spec ride bushings and new ball joints... so essentially had brand new uca's. I actually took install pics the second time around :)
