Thanks. It rides great with the lift, the only thing i can notice is a tiny vibe in the tires and that i sit higher. My friends tell me it doesnt even feel like my vehicle has changed.

Well, I am gunna fix the fender as soon as i can, and my rockrails should be in soon. The EGR module they sent had the wrong wire harness so im waiting on that also.

I am currently making a hitch for a D-ring Shackle in my high school metal shop class, Ill put pics up as soon as Im done.

Heres some more ideas...let me know what you all like and if you have any more

-Get all the chrome painted to match the wheels ($400)
-Hi-Lift Jack mounted up top
-Portable winch with hookups in the front and back
-Magnaflow exhaust (~$700) any other good exhausts out there?
-Cold Air Intake with a water saftey valve (whats a good intake? K&N?)
-Sound system involving a new double din CD player, and amp that powers the doors as well as two 12" subs in a custom made box with carpeting to match the interior.
-tint the windows up front a bit

any other ideas?

I personally wouldn't spends $700 on exhaust, just get a magnaflow muffler, and burn it in.

I agree, $700 is a bit steep.

I want the honeycomb style they are supposed to have in production. Hopefully they get their fabrication kinks worked out with it.

Here's a thread of someone who got the one you have a pic of in black.

Just put some shackles on..


My dad cut out a piece of old radiator hose and stuck them on each side so they fit nice and snug and dont rattle.
