i got a new camera for christmas so i figured id do a few updated pics of her. there is definately some surface rust starting to develope, especially on my ghetto crossmember. i think im going to order the clayton crossmember for their long arms and then build a custom 3 link system for the front. i have also decided that if im going to go big i might as well go BIG so im going to go with either 8" liftor 6.5" lift, long arms front and back with a rear coil conversion. oh yea that last pic is a D70 i got for free. i dont think im going to use it though....

i dont think the guy actually has a brand name for it. i got it from a guy in asheville, nc i think. i believe he ships for a decent rate but im headed to school so ill have to find his website for you later. from what i can tell its the same as the jd2 bender but he dosent charge as much.
