Those make for some nice rock lights!  If you don't mind me asking, what did they run?  I'm trying to figure what I've got in my 12v rock lights, probably $100.

Okay, that sounds good. Tonight I'm finally honestly doing the steering; it's off-center by 1.5 turns somehow... it turns more to the right than the left. I also bled the brakes and took out that backwards shim on the rear axle. Since the 37s are on that death wobble hasn't come back. Maybe the 35s were too wide and bald and out of balance or something.

I don't know.

i think those boggers on the front had alot to do with it.. i gotta bleed my brakes too they were feeling softer.... any idea if i have to do something special since i have the rear discs and a proportional valve? maybe leave it all the way open when bleeding?

ok i got some more done today. i removed half the body lift front bumper, modified the sliders had to do some exhaust work and bought a few things i needed. I didnt quite get done what i want since i had a few things to take care of today so that cut into my time

here are some pictures.

you can see she is leaning somewhat



exhaust work





this is the rear pack i was thinking about taking out the fat bottom overload leaf... the arch on the pack is HUGE



and my problem



gotta move the radiator up about 1.5" or so shouldnt be too hard i checked clearance on hood should work out just about right... might need a different cap though

a sweet EAGLE i saw on 36 yesterday




when i get out of school tomorrow i should be able to finish up the rest of the body lift removal..

someone needs to buy my front bumper so i can head up to see scotty at addicted offroad

oh and just to look at here is how tall it sat before im gonna take an after i get BL off

I can use that hunk of exhaust pipe if you're going to toss it... I need a turn-down for my pile. If you need to lift that radiator, come on down and we'll find some metal to "make it work"; as per normal operating procedure at the shop.  :hammerhead:  Also when you take out that fat overload spring you may need washers or different u-bolts if yours aren't threaded enough to tighten down... I ran into that on my truck. The guy had about 1 1/2" of washers on each u-bolt. Time for some flip kits!!  :turtle:

You also left that Keystone Light here with your bumper...   :beerchug:

Looks like he could move some spring hangers a bit and get a better shackle angle and even lower his ride a bit. You would be surprized how much a few degrees changes the height! just a thought...

Hey you should look into run n a ford explorer rear man. Not talk n ya away from the chevvy's but they are so long. The fords work great and have some good flex. Check em out, its wat i have in the rear on my truck and wat pumkin toy had on his orange truck!

Much better without the body lift!  You'll like wheeling a lower truck on the off-camber stuff.

Those rear springs are killing your ride and flex. I would move the rear shackle hanger forward and inch or so and get a nice angle on your shackle, don't pull a leaf unless you build a wrap bar.
