That looks good! I think I will do the bed liner too on my Ford Ranger and my Ford Festiva underneath.

Drive my wife to the dr to check on our new addition to our family. We are 17 weeks along and I can't wait to have another little one running around the house.

Anti roll bar bush kit.

Had my kit for a week and Saturday was good weather wise. Found it fairly easy to do but had to be a bit inventive compressing the bushes to get the top nut on. The bolts are the right length but you need to pre stress the bushes to make room for the top nut. Ended up using quik grips to squeeze them down. Managed anyway. if the bolts were 10mm longer it would've took an hour less. Hey ho.

Not today, but on Friday I installed Explorer leaf springs with a 2 inch shackle. It's nice not having that lift block under it no more. I now sit at 40 inches front and back from the ground to the top of the wheel wells.

Put the Back Rack on.

Oh do I need a picture, I will have to get one.

I almost don’t like the way it sits with the new hoops on the top but I think I can make it better with an added strap on the lower section, kind of close it up some.

You know me on pics, I will try to get o ne asap.

Added:

I went out and got a couple of pictures.

Before:



After top hoops: Not sure you can see the difference.



I need to add the lower bars to close in the bottom loop, should balance things out some.

Will post a full on back shot as soon as I can get the lower bars in place.

Gave her a much needed wash my truck was no longer looked red it was looking white thanks to having a sand drive way... Detailed the inside as it was no longer grey it was white as well and cleaned my air filter since I haven't done it in a while.

bedlined the lower rockers. they were in super rough shape from all the gravel roads i travel. so i sanded them down real good, cleaned em up with alcohol, scuffed em up, and shot them with 4 coats of Duplicolor bed armour.

btw, shitty product to use in spray can form. if i woulda known it woulda been so inconsistent i would have got the roll on stuff. But, its done and looks decent enough for me. best of all, it will do its job. protect my truck from our salty wintery goodness.

pics in a minute.
