damn, that sport actually looks pretty good!
I found a guy near me that drives an XLT, may have to go take a look of his front suspension, see what its like. if I can bolt it onto my truck I'll probably do that, it'll allow me to go a lot lower, I dont want anything too extreme tho.

well, spent a few good hours cleaning! did underneath, outside, and in, and i didn't even wax it yet, that'll have to come after my trip. I can tell that its lower, sits about 1"/1.5" lower then factory, hopefully after the next bit of work it'll be 3/3

I think when I get back form my trip (driving to Orlando for 2 weeks) I'm going to flip my keys and remove a leaf. prrobably the factory smallest leaf and keep my AAL in since my leaf pack was shot long ago and rode like $hit!

I know a lot of people have said flipped keys is a terrible ride, but apparently its no different then having your bolts all the way out, which mine are so we will just have to see.

Little tiny update,
I picked up a roll pan on my way home from Orlando (ended up staying there an extra week haha, I love it there!) from 03edge (thanks again!) for free, it was in rough shape, but could have been way worse. Since I have no job and lots of time I decided to start fixing it up, got a fibreglass patch kit and started patching holes in it, and then started to bondo any pits in the paint, or where I glassed to smooth it out. I'm almost done that then I can start painting. I just have the sections left that were really uneven and needed a decent amount of filler. so I'm doing it little by little. It's looking pretty good though!

Keys will be done sometime in the near future, along with a leaf removal, then I think that is as low as i want to go! after that it's saving time! Oh and i have to finish my sub box...

List of things to save for:
•18" Rims (KMC Novas)
•Tires
•Amp
•Want to find an STX Front bumper BADLY
•Fill flare Holes
•Coilovers

Well, I got my rollpan painted and installed. the fit is....welllll not so good, but not so bad either. it was free though, so it'll do me for now. I painted it with dupli-color perfect match and the match, not so perfect either but its good enough. Also shaded my tails again! since the body shop replaced my tails for no reason at all...
pics!

That rollpan doesn't look TOO bad even though it doesn't fit the greatest. You need some Cobra's like I need a license though haha

It looks fine. Cleans up the back end nicely.

Sometimes I want to take my hitch off to put a roll pan on but then I end up towing something and the urge goes away.

great work so far man.

haha yeah ty, do need one baaaaad. I'm not gonna go with cobras, but right now i need SOMETHING instead of those stupid outlaw IIs. I also have to get those bolt lights for the plate...

I've always liked the look of a roll pan, even on a lifted truck (see Howells) so maybe some day I'll scoop up a SS hitch and it'll sit behind the pan...and I'll just cut a hole behind the plate or something. cos a hitch is definitely nice to have

Looks good, the fit doesn't look too bad! You better get a light on there before the OPP gets you! lol They've been a pain in the *** for stuff like that around here lately.

I'm a moron though, and didn't take a before measurement. but I think it was somewhere around 32 1/4" to the bottom of the flare.
