yea the cinderblock was handy..lol got tired of hitting my *** on those ridges in the floor pan...haha


well when i decide if i want to lower or lift i will put the bed back on because i have a 2 inch lift shackle and the 2 inch blocks that came off the 4wd setup...or i can just flip the rear hangers and install a flip kit and call it a day..i dunno yet

what the hell does it matter? there are alot of lifted 2wds here.....i still have my 4wd drivetrain just no front differential....i eventually want to sas but dont have anyone to weld it up for me...the only purpose for the frame swap was to not have a bent one i didnt care if it was a 2wd frame or 4wd just wanted a straight frame and the deal john gave me was really good...either way i dont have to justify myself to anyone

Starting to look like a truck man! At this rate you will have it started back up in no time. Those wheels actually look decent from a distance....lol My vote is to lower it a little, maybe a couple inches but don't go crazy with it. You want it to end up being a nice driver. You also have the perfect oportunity to paint it any color you like. Of all the cars I have painted I have a favorite color. Its nordic blue from a 1968 cougar...forget the code. I'll add a pic. Might not be flashy enough for you but its awesome in person, alot of small metallic. FYI I painted this car.
