Being that you are getting closer and closer to finishing. I just see one thing that is so small compared to what you should be worrying about now, that I would recommend. Go buy a set of gap guards, or get splash guards for both front sides. With bigger tires in the future I'm sure, your engine bay is gonna be a mess!

Even if he does... it would be something good to have. I have noticed significant improvements, even if your not mudding, just driving in rain.

Oh and btw... truck looks awesome. Nice job.

Excuse the newb in me, but why is your coil bucket shaped with a pipe hanging down? I thought there was supposed to be the flat part there, up high...maybe I'm wrong, I dunno anything about coils!

i will weld a circular plate at the correct place on that tube and then cut the tube short.

i just made it long so i could have enough adjustment.

i think hes more aiming towards not having a flat upper coil mount. like you would have if you werent running the adjustibles. Which, is obivously why you need the new hoop with the tube hangin as such.
