    Kyb Shocks... for now
    this is what I started with

    2_f64a9cf95cce63cd9cbd2afc1d2d2cc0765152a4.jpg
    3_a8763441fa990614bd1cf5371e89058428353b5a.jpg

    First came the exhaust: Pics are not of the first exhaust I have, first is of the muffler I'm running. It's a magnaflow, the 2nd pic is of my current exhaust being welded up to clear the notch

    Exhaust_2912a8875da80f78b1cb224c37cd3103ae66d0da.jpg

    Then came the OEM Tach Cluster
    cluster_b62f38a04544ea27d6708555f3746a3f5d503735.jpg

    then came rims/tires: front: 235/40/18 Rear 265/35/18 (going to 245s probably)

    IMG_1433_454c5de42d52f3eea687ae7a5fbad5b53ff9f0dd.jpg

    You'll note at this point it looks HIGH off the ground.. well I agreed

    so:

    100_0140_d63591c268621b1c68d8b88e022740ac822c8f70.jpg

    Cut LCAs for QA1 plates
    102_0083_c1734904b333649f295f1dcbd4b7d5353dba88d5.jpg
    Prerunner Leafs (3 inch drop with middle leaf removed)
    102_0084_cd7357d3399f829cdaa71dfa613d4d7f3050a180.jpg

    Not Pictured are the 3 inch Beefed blocks and ubolts
    this is what I ended up with:

    IMG_1083_271beaf23fa269e16cf02571072840f3606d098d.jpg

    IMG_0075_33d4638a4fb711fb7f4e04ff6159b3f15f54b64e.jpg

    I should probably mention that the QA1s are GMP1s and I'm running 8 inch 565lb springs and that The toxic shocks on the back are PN# 418509

    This is how I put the proportioning valve end.. so far it hasn't broken off haha

    IMG_9734_b01d587fac544630d90702f71ee1fb68c906c19c.jpg
    IMG_9735_a2aeb1d7b3bd9cdd8d7805a4f16dbddbcf2bd2c9.jpg

    thats all I got for now ;p

    It definitely is very wrong on a 4x4 or a pre runner, but not a base model. I think it looks pretty good.

    What was your original gauge cluster? Just three displays? The temp, speed, and gas?
