Yeah running a procomp drop pitman arm. Steering links are all stock for now. Plan on building some new ones soon.

Spring wrap was not near as bad as I thought it would be even with my old springs. I plan on fabbing up some ant wrap bars in the next couple weeks. It is still verry driveable even with the big V8. Only thing I realy worry about is the loose gravel on a hill klimb or something.

sorry I need to fix the pics they are way to big LOL.

What is the elevation there and what are you hunting? Here on the East Coast hunting is over by mid-February with the exception of Spring Gobbler.

To answer both questions I used Krylon flat tan paint around 2 cans per side so we will say 8 total. Then a can every couple months for touch up. Some day when a lot of other stuff is done I want to media blast the tub and paint the exact same color with a real automotive or military paint. I love the color and have an AR15 to match.
