Thats it for now. Not too bad for a year worth of modding huh? More mods to come!!!!!!!

Thanks Dragon and Layonnn for yalls comments! I actually did see something about a shortened shifter but it wasn't a writeup. So I then winged it on my own. :bigthumb:

Good looking truck. I'd like to see a front shot of the truck with snorkel and stock rims if you have one.

Looks great! That is the perfect culmination of a bunch of ideas and stuff I had thought about doing. How do you like that lift?

Thanks! I like the lift alot. It's not bad for only paying $40 for it from another member on the forums. When I upgrade to coilovers I'll be passing it off to someone else for the price of shipping too. As for performance of the lift, it's pretty smooth ride and I get decent flex outta the rear. Not bad for a 1st lift!

You got it from Bearbait right? I saw that post and debated about it...dont know why and then it got scooped up. Im glad you like it and are using it offroad, I think realistically with the amount I plan on wheeling that this would be the perfect lift for me. Unless I find a killer deal on some 5100's and rear springs :bigthumb: I know some other suspension systems are superior but something like this would fit me perfect now. I'll be keeping an eye on this page, keep up the nice work!

I installed a Defender rack axe and shovel mount today. I did the machining to make it work with the stock roof rack. Total in parts = $55. Better than spending $100 on the fourtreks and better than making one using quickfist. This mount you can add a lock to it. Check out the pics.
