My first garage shot!

Well, had to bring it indoors to finish moving my shifter mounts back an inch from the dash.. it was rubbing a bit with the bodylift so I had to fab up a few mounts to bring it back properly.. didnt have any pictures of teh actual process minus a before shot.. but I can get more tomorrow..

Heres the front with the bumper back on

Probably because the glare from your purple truck made it too hard to notice
