Sweet man, glad to see it go up so quick.

Specs on the axles/springs/steering?

My **** is all custom and built to the hilt so its taking alot more $$ and time than yours.

Truck Looks Awesome! The bigger the better. Can't wait to see the finished product. If I had the welding skills or knew somebody who did I'd be doing the same!

Good deal. I like it!

Why don't you reclock the shock mounts so they don't stick down? With as much lift as you've already got it's not going to give you much more flex, and it's one less thing hanging down to snag or break? Make them parallel to the ground.
