REAL Rednecks don't use blocks, shackles or body lifts. Don't soil our name!

Sooooo.... Lift is on. Frame side leaf bolt stripped out and rear pass brake bleeder broke. I installed

lower control arms
coils
extended brake line
SYE
Leaf springs

I made
New shock mounts
track bar mount
Extended quick discos

DirtBound Offroad SYE was pretty strait forward, just crappy drill bits. Spent 30 minutes then went and bought new bits and was done in 5 minutes. I think it looks stupid with 31's and stock rims. Im going to 33's for the street.
Now. 33's and 5 inches of lift=lots of trimming or minor if only used on street. 31's for the trail and winter.
Feedback or comments would be appreciated.
