no, bed is still busted.

no spindles for a 4wd

ok, i give. i added a 1" bodylift, and swapped the factory 2" rear blocks for 1" ones.
check out the gap at the front bumper, and the front wheel opening. also check the gap between the exhaust tip and the bedside. now look at the rake in the first pic and level stance in the second.

that was my goal. i wanted it to look bigger w/o makin it huge. my wife is 5ft tall. i get a cussin everytime she gets in the truck, lol.
i also wanted to keep some gap in the wheel openings when i step up to the next tire size here shortly. tires pictured are severly worn out 275/70R17's. i will be gettin some 285/70/17's(33's) next. the pics i have seen of 33's on trucks with only a t-crank look like the wheel well is over-stuffed.

scott - i shoulda mentioned in the first post, that you werent allowed in this game. you already knew the plan for this weekend.
didnt i already show you the pics of the bodylift blocks? i guess i could go get one of the fronts installed...

rand - i started to make the transistion from sport truck to minitruck on the 89. stock floor bodydrop, custom frame, independent rear suspension, shaved everything, 2" roof chop. along the way things in my life changed and i decided i didnt want the truck anymore. i kept the 2.3T drivetrain and sold the truck as a roller.
there are pics of it in my photobucket:
http://s25.photobucket.com/albums/c73/gmby23/

*edit, new pics of bodylift blocks added to metal fab forum as requested

You're wife is right. It's one of those things that only you would notice because it's your truck, but that's all that really matters anyway.
