    I am figruring stuff out as i go so i am gonna mess around with my leafs until i find what works best cause i know things are gonna change a bit once i put the blocks in.

    the front end though, sittin sic coils and XR bilsteins, rides pretty damn nice. and i imagine it will only get better as things break-in a bit.

    Love the project man! I'm doing the same project theme. I'm going for a Darth Maul theme. Black Rims, BLHM, Black Grille, etc. Already got the tailights tinted and the black grille is on its way! Good Luck!

    got my BEEFED blocks installed last weekend and my x-runner wheels and tires today. so i slap these babies on and hit the highway to go to work and they are vibrating like a SOB. im already almost late for work so i dont have a choice but to roll on them. turns out the dude who sold me the wheels neglected to tell me he removed the TPMS sensors and never rebalanced the wheels/tires. now i have a wierd "clack" sound from my front end when i press on my brakes. AWESOME. hope i didnt f**k something up.

    Sucks dude. What a fuckin dickhead huh?

    The tire shop that removed and remounted the tires after he pulled the TPMS should have balanced them. Gotta be standard practice. Clowns.

    got everything balanced and swapped over. rides like a champ now. when i had everything apart i looked at and put a wrench on everything in the front end that could move. NOTHING! but the noise stopped so i am over it. haha

    i should go ask the dick that sold me the wheels for $120 back to pay for this shit.

    Heres how she looks after the rest of the drop is installed and the XR wheels.

    like the way it sits now and rides nice. eventually going lower, but stereo stuff is next on the list.

    so i havent been updating my build as often as i should. but these are the goodies i picked up about 3 weeks ago for a F'ing killer deal at local junk yard. did a bucket seat swap and center console swap. evrything fit like a glove and took very little modding to fit everything in.

    for those wondering, all the mount holes for the bucket seats are already there, you just have to cut holes in the carpet and carpet liner to find where they are. same goes for center console mounting bracket under the arm rest.

    if anyone has any questions on the install feel free to ask, i am not gonna post another bucket swap thread because i know there are at least 2 "how to's" on TW already.

    seats are a little crusty in the pic but they cleaned up nice and i am gonna shampoo them again to get the last bit of dust out .

    stuff after i picked it up...

    and after the install. sorry for shitty pics but i am using an iphone...

    here is how she sits now. i also took the stock 5 lug overload leaf out and put in the prerunner overload that came with the leafs when i got them. i flipped them over to the "happy" position and drilled out the rivet holding the parking brake bracket and removed that so they would fit. also dont have the tonneau on anymore. it for sale if anyone wants it $250 takes it home.:D

    [​IMG]

    got rid of the x-runner wheels for now and painted my stockers black. also have the xr rims for sale if anyones interested for $550
