-optima yellow battery
-4:56 gears
-5" pro-comp lights ( for lower valance ) - negative. remove front bumper and put a tube one on there, with a winch
-Super chip - negative, just no.
-New brakes - that works

That works.

Or, Dana 44 (EB is the right width, BB, grab the rear also), 5.13, detroits/spools, upgraded shafts (every shaft you can find), 39.5 TSLs, Coil sprung front, 1/4 eliptical rear, flat/tube bed, OBA, OBW, OBX.

Or, send it to me, if you are interested in this option, I will send you my address in a PM. Seriously, as in, no joke, not laughing, not even a smirk, serious as a heart attack.



































No joke at all.












































































not laughing yet.




















































































<- not doing this at all.
