So the next thing that will be done is a tire carrier. Im not a fan of having the tire up top, too much wind resistance. I have a good idea of how i want to build it so ill prob start on that this weekend. I also want to brace my sliders so that will be coming also. Ill be dropping some deniro on the ***** in july, most likely gonna order 4" coils, front led light bar, led pods, rk uppers, g2 8.25 cover and a good full tune up.

I have some RE 5.5s and rear springs ..and the genright stuff to do the rear spring conversion ... I was going to do that before I decided I really just want coils .... If you want o fab up some long arms ill hook you up.... So you would have 5.5 lift with a rear spring conversion ... Kinda like SRF's rig ..., and he gets some sick flex out of those rear long arms


If you want you can buy me a pair of lights for 100$ and you can have it all, well call it a trade

It's a weld on bracket that the spring mounts too on the body side. You would still need to get the axle side bracket .... And some long arms for the rear. Just an option .... I have the stuff just siting around
