    Never posted pictures of my custom retro-fit. Halos were installed behind the shroud giving it a very unique look.

    Well I installed all the suspension components today with a buddy.

    Fronts went really smoothly, but the rear was such a PITA. Those leaf springs not moving for 6 years and going through 4 New York winters. Needless to say they did not want to move.

    The suspension front and rear had been sagging badly in the last year and would not have faired well off road. I gained about 3.5" of lift up front w/o the bumper and winch, but once the bumper and winch go on (~200lbs) I'm expecting it to drop a little.

    I didn't take many photos during the install, but here a few.

    Deciding on tires soon.

    Bumper ships tomorrow and that should be getting installed on the 5th. Light bar brackets got delayed as my builders CNC machine broke, but they should be finished the 8th or 9th.
