    That's a killer build man. Where did you get your Jack-all bracket for the side of you box? Exactly what I need.

    Wow, you guys are quick! I can't remember the exact store I bought it from, but it is called the 4xRack.

    http://www.hi-lift.com/accessories/index.html

    It is very sturdy, haven't had any issues with it at all. The bolts also have holes so you can mount small locks in there to keep it secured.

    Very, very nice! I like it a lot. :drool: That skid plate though needs to be black. Other than that, I love the transformation.

    I've played around with this idea a bunch of times, but to me, when they are black, they disappear underneath with the rest of the black body, especially with my black lower bumper. If I could pick up another skid really cheaply, I might try it, but for now I like the contrast of the stock skid.

    Thanks for the kind words though! It's definitely come a long way!

    Hey man, I wad thinking about doing a similar lift to this in my truck. what is the story with rubbing/ spacers on this. Will I need to add wheel spacers to the front or do any cutting? I have an 05 sport with stock 17" rims. Thanks. NICE TRUCK!!! that thing is tough.

    It's been a while, I remember some rubbing on the stock UCA and a small spot on a piece of the frame. 1/4" spacers helped a little bit, but there was still some rubbing.

    lol thanks man! I love it too. Took a long time of saving up. I would love to do so many other things too! My two most expensive wants right now are a supercharger and a sunroof. As the weather gets nicer, a sunroof sounds better and better!
