Not yet, I'm cranking the T-bars tomorrow since it has to be aligned anyways.

I kinda ran out of money.

1 kit per side yo. you should invest in a pair of kits. better adjustment for an alignment once you're lifted.

Hey, question to anyone.
When you do a body lift, what do you do about your hitch?

I want a 01-03 front valence, but i might squeeze a custom bumper on back.

Did my OHC today, Ran out of daylight for a better picture.

Who did the VSS wire, and who didn't?
does it make that big of a difference. I didn't run it since i used 14ga trailer wire, so there was only 4 going down to the dash. I might do it tomorrow. i need to go get another wire tap connecter.

Thread update.
Also X-post for Silver lake.

Flag mount yo.

Made out of Aluminum. 1/8" Holes mount in the licence plate holes on front bumper.
Has triangle gussets underneath for you nay-sayers that it won't be strong enough.
