You know the manifolds and head can all be pulled as one piece right?

Yea but I didn't feel like unbolting the exhaust collectors and it seems like a better idea to take the manifolds off. I originally was going to try to do it that way.

Ok here's some pics with the new front and rear bumper. What would you guys do with the rear part of the rocker? I'm bed lining my rockers and I think going with tj flares. What should I do with that?

Cut and fold it, i have smashed my lower quarters so much even with them folded in. They would look so wrinkled if i wouldn't have.

You think it would look weird with my bumper though?

I would say cut and fold as well but it may look weird with the rear bumper. Warn makes some diamond plating that fits over your rockers I actually have it on mine, doesn't really help with them getting smashed but I think it looks good and did provide some armor. This was a little while ago, you can see my rear quarter is a little bent up.

0_0 I'd say put the front bumper back on but to each his own.... Congrats on all the hard work though.

I like that. I may just bedline that portion along with the rest and if it gets bent up then ill cut and fold it

Got some carnage pics. Unfortunately this happened on the road. I was being stupid as **** with some friends and lets just say the end result was a bent rim, broken rim, bent control arm mount, and broken control arm. All I've found so far may be more. It pushed the right wheel way back I'm assuming just because of the control arm. Gonna weld the cracks on control arm for now. I'm cheap. And going to make a new control arm mount. Putting on all new control arm bushings as well gonna put my Mtr on my spare rim that's the same and get a new spare rim

Just got my tire switched over to my spare rim and balanced it. Started to think about the best way to cut the mount off and make a new one. Realized my control arm is actually aluminum so can't weld it. Gonna order new control arms I guess. Not sure if I should do the mount or pickup a hp Dana 30 from a junkyard and use that. Then I wouldn't need to do balljoints assuming I get one with good balljoints. Any opinions? Has anyone done a control arm mount on the axle?

Anyone have any opinions on what control arms work well with a 3 inch lift? I want adjustable
