Thanks for the project, bud. We had a good day to appreciate the shop, due to the rain and hail. No seized nuts, no broken bolts, no rust, I love MT.

I don't know if he's alive, the tires are 245's. But in person, I'm tellin' ya, it is an awesome looking tire/lift combination for a light duty set-up. Ha, light duty... in a niner It's a sweet rig. I see why he doesn't want to start chopping it up.

You need control arms something fierce. Your springs should sit straight up and down.


Seriously, not safe, get some.

Looks nice though.

These are the combo I'm getting. I'll probably run over after dinner and grab those, plus the bolt that will finish off my Durango Air Hat mod. Not the most productive day ever, but not bad for running on 30 minutes of sleep last night...
You don't have the air hat on yet?? Come on man!

Hahahaha I'm waiting for my friend with the sawzall to get back into town. I need to cut the hood bracing to get it to fit. Once he's back, it'll be on in a heartbeat!
