Wheels and tires are Moto Metal MO978 18x9 +18mm and Nitto Ridge Grappler LT275/70R18. Pinch weld mod with a LOT of additional hammering.
Suspension is OME MD front Springs, OME HD rear springs, Koni Special Active shocks and struts, JBA Front Upper Control Arms, and Core 4x4 adjustable rear control arms.

A(nother) new hub went on this weekend as well as a new ps pump, (with a flush).
I really don't get why we have to use unicorn juice for a basic hydraulic system.. $75 when $10 should do, fthat...
All quiet and happy again..

|Vertisce21||Do you have a build thread? I am very interested in everything about your setup. Bumpers? Tire size and spacing. Lift kit and so on...|

|Th0r||No frame work yet, so not perfect on the alignment, bit it's painted and bolts up! Still need to figure out if I want to tie the round lamps into DRLs or turn signals.|

|Th0r||I'm also Fitting a KB Off-road front bumper. Gonna have to get my truck on a frame machine cause the front end is a bit tweaked from a hit. I knew this going in. It bolts up, but since there's no "give" with steel, it doesn't line up as well at the plastic bumper. It's got a slight downward tilt that leaves a 1" gap between the top of the bumper and the headlights.|

|Th0r||Did some more audio stuff. Cut out one of the storage compartments and built a box into the load floor for two 6.5" subs I had laying around. Metal grilles will be here tomorrow, and I still need to find some matching carpet. CDT Audio 3" speakers (still waiting in the grilles) and 28mm tweeters glassed into the a pillars. I also have Audio Development 6.5 speakers in the front doors. Three way active with 6.5's crossed @ 80-200hz, 3's @ 200-3000hz, and tweets @ 3000hz and up. CT Sounds PA components in the rear doors for fill. Run off an 8 channel DSP feeding two 4-channel CT A/B amps and one CT mono D amp for the subs.|
