Looks a lot better now. I really like it! Now all you need is to get a bumper on there and you'll be set.
I know it. I'm still debating on what I'm gonna do up there.

Did you ever get your new bumper fixed up?

My jack finally came, 60". So I made up some brackets at work today and mounted it up. I still need to figure out a good way to put a lock on it. But atleast it's secured for now.

Truck looks good with the lift. I would probably lower the rear end to match, but that's just me.

Thanks.

Yeah, I've been thinking about trying to level it out some. I think replacing the RCD shackles with some Beltech shackles would do it. Just not sure yet.

Hey matt...

an idea for locking your hi-lift...

if those bolts are 1/2", you can get those KC Lite Locks. They take a special key to use...they're round nuts which have holes in them for the special key to go in and loosen/tighten them. Just an idea.

Yeah 1/2". I thought about trying to use locking lug nuts, those lite locks sound like the same thing. I'll have to check them out.

Finally got the front bumper put back on. I forgot how scarred up it was, needs paint. :( I've got some work to do to the valance before it can go back on. I also want to get a hitch up there for my winch so it can wait to go on.

Lowered the back bumper so that I could get the tailgate back on. It hasn't been on in so long looking out the rearview mirror looks funny. lol

I'm gonna have to do something to fill that annoying gap or raise the bumper up some.

Leaf spring question

Driver sides looks normal.

Passenger side looks like the rubber bushing has worked it's way out.

Think this could be a contributing factor to my slight rear end wobble??

I've got another leaf spring, just didn't really want to swap it out. I figured it'll be alright until I decide to change it.

Finally got some 06 emblems and took of the dealer decal. Much better!!

Also put a new tailgate cable on. But Autozone cables are just a little shorter then stock so I need to get another one.

Clean enough, but it really needs to be waxed. I just painted the frame with some gloss black rustoleum and it makes the blue look dull as hell. lol

Finally got around to hosting some pics from the other night. Haven't got any day shots yet but here it is. New and improved with the new coils!!! It's back to the height it was when I first installed the kit. I could go up more if I wanted to but I just left it for now.

Still a mess. I really need to get up in there with a pressure washer, again.

Took the sway bar off. Such a big difference then running with it. I think I like it.

Why are those sliders just sitting there on the floor of your garage and not on your truck.

It's still a couple inches higher in the back. I don't think I could make it level even if I maxed out the coilovers. The 6" Skyjackers and RCD shackles are just too much.

As for the sliders. I just haven't had the opportunity to get the truck and welder in the same building for a long time. But they should be on within the next few weeks.

Did I mention I love the blue coils!!!!!!!!!!!

Testing it out some. Without the swaybar it has much more travel up front.
