finally ridin lower

well after years and years deciding to go either up, or go down, i have made up my mind, and have finally decided to lower... i went 2" DJM front springs, and the famous shackle flip in the rear to give me a drop of 2/2... i wish it was a little bit lower especially with the tires i am running now, but thats another battle for another day... but here are some of the progress pics

before:



dropped on 235/75/15's





here she is lowered with the new tires... 225/60/16's, and trimmed bumpstops... and yes i know the teardrops aren't the most popular rims, and they are 4WD rims, but who cares

Looks good Like i said on rps.

You'll be ordering a DJM upper and lower control arms and a flipkit soon...

trim your exhuast pipe in the rear to make it cleaner and ditch the hitch ball actually attached, not the hitch itself and it will look clean.

on the exhaust, just take a sawzall to it at an angle right before the axle. (angle it so the exhaust blows down) you'll get a beefier sound out of it to.

Looks much better, but you still need to paint the grill!
