Well so far so good just moved the axle forward 2 inches to keep the tires Front tearing the front fenders off. I will also need longer shocks for the front the shocks are toping out.
The rear skyjacker springs do not flex for crap. I will be upgradings those at some point.
any suggestions on leaf springs I was thinking the new Toyota race runner leafs.

$480ish bucks for a beast bumper like that? Damn, that's more than half the cost of what I was quoted locally.

I may have to do something about this.
