So it has been a while since I updated this but i have got a lot done and have been real busy. So since my last update i got a deal on a 4.5 rough country lift and a set of mickey thompson baja mtzs. i got the lift and every thing to make it able to drive from New York where i live down here to North Carolina even thou every single thing that could have gone wrong when installing the lift went all to he ll broke to many bolts to count and had many nights of me just giving up because of frustration but its done. have to thank my friend and his dad for letting me use his garage made it so much easier
it feels so much better to have it up in the air a little

up next i plan to trim the fenders and i think i have to do a cut and fold to my quarter panels because i found a huge rust hole under the stupid conner pieces

That coyote was in a trap...? Is that the trap in the front of the picture?



Not sure I have ever seen one before, looks like a dog...

yes that is the trap in front of him. NC state law you need to shoot them on the spot, or at least that is what I was told.
