Yes for the front. I might use a 2" block for the back depending on how it looks on level ground. Right now its got a little Cali lean.

Had to put a fender up there.

Thanks. You know it. It's nice to jack it up without having to worry about it falling over. Paint for the bumper is either gonna be blue or silver.

Thanks.

Shock hoops are here. But I need to put the headers on first. Almost forgot about them.

Still working on the steering. I might end up using a flat pitman arm and notch the frame if it's too close. Looks like it'll be about 2 turns of the wheel to lockout either side.

Steering box finally mounted up. I cleared the tranny lines too but they're sticking out the bottom now. Might try cutting them short and extend the rubber lines.

Started up the truck to check the steering. You can see in the video why you need to brace the steering shaft.




Something is going on with the speedometer. This is the first time I've started the truck since I hooked the vss up.

Yes. Thank you. I found it all on eBay a lot cheaper than summit.

Flexed it out to check clearances. I might have to use a flat arm for the steering. It's only got about 1 1/2" clear and these springs are brand new. Lots of down though.
