Thanks guy not really sure what will be next.

But I have been thinking long and hard about an idea. Install a body lift but leave the front grill pucks out, that way the hood has a rake, and build highlines around it. Never really seen it done before I think it'd look badass

I've seen it done a couple of times and I think it looks pretty cool. I think with a 1" body lift it looks good, any more than that and it looks goofy. I'm pretty sure this rig has the same thing done to it.

Exactly Kyle, anymore pictures or a build.
It looks like the fenders slope with the hood, I was thinking more flat/ straight across

Actually I might be doing that. I figure I can ditch the body lift at the grill and that will center my fan shroud back up and probably look a lot cleaner.

Did some wheeling
Did not get a chance to get too many photos as being the driver, but it was a great time. Performed great and im really impressed with the km2s.











Blew a ****ing bead again. I need beadlocks needless to say
It was a pretty sketchy spot to blow a bead, had to 2 winches on me

My led flasher came in the mail so my turn signals don't flash as fast.


And idea on a FEELER for my COLUMBIA EDITION seats are worth. Kinda want to get rid of these before I do my cage.

Installed the body lift and left the grill puck out. Hood rake time

Added some led reverse lights in the rear cross member awhile back
