    So here I sit still waiting for my OME lift to be shipped. :mad: I ordered it almost a month ago now. On the other side I just purchased a 1st Gen Supercharger. :D I will be getting a hold of URD to order the 7th injector kit next and possibly beefing up the transmission before that mod goes on. I will keep updating pics as the build goes. WOW:eek: is this site costing me some money. All is good...

    looks really good, i may trade mine in sometime in the next year for one more like this cuz now i have a 98 prerunner extended cab, lookin for a 03 or 04 4wd dc so this thread gave me a good idea of what a good one looks like, really like the bumper.

    Here is the 1st Gen supercharger. Talked with Gadget today and I will be ordering the 7th injector kit by the end of the month. :D

    Marco from Downsouth Motorsports shipped out my OME kit as well so I will be putting it on soon (hopefully this weekend).:D

    Finally got the OME kit in today. Hopefully will be installing that this weekend. Went out tonight and started rewiring the control plug for the winch. I am mounting the control box under the hood and the plug for the control in the cab in front of the 4-wheel drive shifter. Looks good so far, just hope I can get it done before this weekend. I will post pics when complete.

    Well today I finally got the winch control box and plug rewired, spooled the rope on and painted the rear bumper. :D The only chrome left is the fairlead on the front bumper and I will leave that alone.
    Got the OME kit sitting in the garage waiting for a couple of days to install that.
    Took some pics of the mods but now I can't locate the usb cable to download them. I will keep looking and post as soon as I can find the damn cable.

    Got the lift finished today. Looks great.

    Took me and a buddy about 4 hrs and 12 cold beverages. Very simple install, even without destructions :rolleyes:. The only thing I don't like is that the front is still sitting about 1 1/2" lower. So I guess I will be calling Wheelers and ordering the trim pack kit. I did order and install the longer studs just in case it did come up short on the front and of course it did. As I am sitting here typing the UPS man shows up with the bushwackers so I guess I will be up tonight to install them.:D:D

    I'd say the rear end will settle down to a level stance after some time.

    Judging off your Cv joints, you definitely have room to bump up with a trim if you'd like.
