    Nice work. Sorry to hear you want to upgrade from the 5L.

    I supposed I'd upgrade to if given the choice, but thats not happening there is something I like about having this doofy little single cab truck. I still hauls shit when I need to haul it (like a fridge) and I'm actually a big fan of Reg cab trucks, I can still bang the wife in it and no more than 1 person can the bug shit of of me for a ride.

    Well got the front end slammed today. Repowdered the DJM arms only to have to grind some of the welds down at the reinforcement spot because they did such a shit tastic job assembling them to ensure that the lower balljoints seated properly within the mounting holes. Hopefully blocks show up later this week to finish off the rear.:D

    Blocks and notch showed up Thursday! Took about 4 hours but I got her slammed. Gas tank side was a pain and I did not have enough room to fully box the notch but it did carry across the entire top.

    Recentered my bed friday and pulled the upper fender mounts to widen the rear no more rubbing.

    Was going to try and see if I could extend upper rear fender mounts but thats not possible with composite bed so I pulled that and rolled the upper portion of the fenders the best I could with bare hands. Will baseball bat them next weekend. Also relocated speed sensor bracket today but still need to do some trimming on the composite bed for clearence. Then QA1s in the next week to button her up.:cool:

    Nice man. I don't know if that's the way I would have gone but I like it. Do you have before and after pics with the fenders?
