i actually have lol i am in kingsburg a lot actually...im from fowler im sure youve heard of that small town too lol...well good luck with your build man...in my opinion you might want to think twice about the body lift because as soon as you do the sas you wont want it anymore...i know on my project right now it has a body lift and thatll be coming off or at least will be getting shortened

clean runner! i would also advise against a body lift, you wont like it once you get springs under it. just save up for an sas, you'll appreciate it in the long run
