    So I thought I would start a build thread almost 3 years and right at 36,000 miles later.
    I have added Maxtrac spindles for 4" lift in the front, All-Pro Expo leafs for 4' in the rear. Also Light racing UCA's. Waiting on DSM to get the extended length shocks in so I can install those instead of the extended length 5100's.


    As she sits today:

    Spacer lift and Falken tires: Tires barely lasted 10,000 miles.

    Same here...would feel weird to just drop it off and have someone else do the work. Would save a lot of busted knuckles and greasy hands but that's all part of the fun! :D

    I still need to sand it down and drill for hood pins and wiper spray nozzles. Then paint it! I have to do a little here and there so I can keep the wife happy!!!!

    No noticeable difference with the arms except the alignment cant go into alignment because the extra built in caster...
