Shocks, modifying the tranny crossmember for the front driveshaft, and the truckbed.

Then i'm getting a milemarker e9000 winch and eventually make a rear bumper with a reciever from my factory hitch and some d-ring shackles.

And a cage.

Ya i had abs, but no i'm not bypassing the pump. ABS won't work anyways with none of the sensors on the truck at all.

I got my front brake lines in today...

Got my rear brakeline made today. I now have all the parts to finish my truck except for wheels and shocks. Wheels should get here next week. Then i'll drive it to mild2wild and flex it up on one of the lifts and measure for the shocks and get Mickey to bend up some hoops for my front and rear shock mounts.

What are you going to be running for shocks?

and once you get them measured up, lemme know what size you will need, 12-14.. etc. I might be able to give you some I have.

they'll prolly last as long as if not longer than my Bias TSL's. Boggers are a hard compound, and my TSL's are soft as hell...
