You mean cv's? If so at the moment I don't even care haha, it's so fun to just bomb through trails and big hits that I don't even need 4wd, I might Persue Dixon next spring. I'm more worried about Getting the rest of my truck done

Not much of an update but I welded tabs to probably mount my resi's and my rear glass is on the way and I have 2" spacers ready to go. I'm still waiting on my rear shock rebuild kit, it's been 2 months now.. Stupid fox
Truck will be lowered 1.5" once my dual rate setup comes and I get my LT leafs

Ahhh we'll see when the truck goes in for the proper paint job this spring/summer, might be easier just keeping it two tone

Will definitely be easier, but it would look good either way.

Mounted my bedsides and got my rear shocks on. I have been told 2.5 weeks until the shop is ready to take me in for painting my front and rear fenders and a "pro" polishing job on my doors. The final two steps will be getting my front and rear bumpers made and installing deaver f31's then time to sit back and just enjoy!
