That right there is why! Your a good guy whom has taken the time to do a quality job on their Vehical. Its not Like Roush or Saleen ( or whomever the popular offroad parts creators are ) gave you a kit and did a professional install.

This is One of the Reasons I respect the Hell out of Jey. Both of you ( many more before and to come as well ) Have a ' Can Do ' attitude and took the time to figure out and do what you wanted to do with no major facilities at your disposals. The last in line of a ' garage mechanic ' type in your OWN Garage.

The setup looks clean and after your all donw polishing it up, I bet it will look like a factory setup.

THAT is why someone like yourself deserves a magazine spot.

my point.. just worded differently

if u had just the superlift still, and it looked pretty, no biggy


but with all the time, and work yall spent on the truck, using what you had and what ever else D. said... you deserve a spot
