The UPS truck just dropped off some PolyPerformance BBCS shocks for me. I still need to weld up the shock mounts on the axle, but these shocks look great.

I plan on doing a write up on the BBCS shocks after I am done with the install





It is also looking like I am going to be heading to Moab in October, so I have a few things left to do before the trip

I got the mounts welded up this morning, I took the truck for a spin around the house and I was really impressed with how well the shocks ride

Here are a few pics




here is my wife pulling the truck into our garage

Trucks looks great! How much clearance does it have between the garage door and the roof? Looks like it barely fits.

Thanks for the kind words

I just ordered one of these bad boys today I don't need it for the tires but it will be nice for running air tools



I also picked up all the parts to set up trailer brake on my car hauler. I figure they might come in handy for the road trip to utah

I took the truck to some trails near my house to check out the shock travel, the rear moves so much better since JK Customs re did my rear suspension crossmember.


I also put the doors back on and cut the front fenders

I finally got a new camera so now my shots should not be so blurry.

I went and cycled the suspension with a friends forklift, so here are some poser shots. The rear moves alot better now






I also rewired my trailer today and added trailer brakes. While I was at it I rigged up my toyotas tail lights to light up with the trailer lights
