grabbed some 4.5 RE springs for super cheap, used these with the shackle relocation to net about 5.25 lift.


5.5 RE springs for the front.


and some cheap ES3000 shocks to shake it all down, will replace these with some bilsteins sooner than later.

also added a trans cooler while i was in there.

Was switching the gauge cluster just as easy as unplugging and plugging? I would love to get rid of the dummy cluster.

The cluster just plugs into the dash..no changes there, but you have to swap out the oil pressure sender, and the temp sender on the engine with the guage style units. The senders are cheap though. It's only about a half hour job, and the results ate well worth it.
