it'll vary through the years...

basics are a couple 3" long 3/8 bolts, nuts and large washers for the new top bolt of the fenders where they bolt to the grill.
1/4" bolts, nuts and 1 1/2" fender washers for the rear flares,
a 10 pack of 4 1/2" cuttoff wheels for the 4 1/2" angle grinder.
a 16" long piece of 1/8"x 2" or larger angle iron for the battery box and fender brackets.

the angle iron is for the rear, lower front fender brackets. it's much easier to refit the tray by cutting the back side off rather than the front of the bracket. weld a stick of angle iron to the lower section that's cut off and bolt it all back on using the factory location.

LCG shock relocation....

I spent the better part of the day messng with these today..

having only a 2.5" lift and long travel shocks takes away uptravel from the suspension system.
I built the brackets to gain uptravel without sacrificing downtravel/flex

I have been running on 25.5" long 10" travel shocks which require 2+" bumpstops and limited my uptravel to about 3.75". since I have diy highline fenders, I have lots of room to play with.
now I have 29" long 12" travel shocks 5.5" max uptravel from ride height and 6.5" down travel, every bit of the articulation is useable although it can unseat the coils slightly... I have more plans for that...

here's some pics, what do ya think?
questions?

my original mock ups... some may remember seeing them posted several months ago..



this is one of my new ones..



I chopped off the top 2" of the shock towers.




ride height.



and properly set bumptops matched to the shock uptravel from ride height... notice it's 5.5"... better than half way into the bumpstop to allow for compression. the rubber stops nearly completely compress to nothing.



full droop.







rear...





and some forklift flex....

Looks interesting. I was thinking of a similar approach. Just have not made the cuts yet.

thanks lol,

I've seen several different versions, my original intention was a bolt on tower, it was getting dark and I gotta drive the thing to work now.. so I welded em.
so now when I get my long track bar done I started and remove the nth degree bar and brace I gotta extend the tower another two inches, remove the remainig bumptop which is there for the nth degree frame brace, add some 14" travel shocks and.... I'll have about 7" of uptravel if everything fits in there

You said you're doing the tummy tuck yourself? When do you plan on starting that? I'd love to do it myself, so I'm always looking for a little inspiration.
