Why thank you! They were a lot of fun. Hopefully I will get to post more trips up before I leave for the Navy! There's some trail about 45 minutes from my house that gets frequented by some locals, I was going to hit it today but alas, it poured all day. Eventually.

The mods that are going to take place for a little while are to get ready for a road trip in the summer, up to Maine and back! One purchase I made today were these.

They're a set of Chevy S-10 springs from a mid 80's model. I only paid $20 for both of them. My plan is to cut down the main leaf and insert it into the rear leaves as a secondary leaf, as JF member UberJeep did a few years ago in this thread. Although the only difference is I'm going to expand on it. I'm going to take the second leaf out of the S-10 pack and insert it in my front pack, to see what that does. He said it really rode well, increased lift height, and decreased axle wrap. I hope it works similarly in the front.

We shall see how it goes!
