Thanks Yomie.

Jey, lookin' good so far.

Brenton, what are you going to do as far as fenders and bumpers? Did you sell your fiberglass fenders already or what? Are you gonna trim the stock fenders or just leave them? Details please.

Lookin good! I thought it would be higher by the look of those springs? It still looks f'ing badass though!!!

BTW, it's gonna be easy if you EVER want more lift to change out the springs to like a 4 or 6" lift springs...thats sooooooo nice!!! I envy you!

As of right now I have no clue about a bumper. I have to buy some fiberglass fenders this weekend, but now I don't want them & I've already told Chirs (DA dude) that I'd buy them & I don't want to let him down. So if yall know anyone who's looking to buy some fiberglass fenders, let me know!

I'll put the one stock fender that I have when I get my real tires/wheels & if it rubs, then we'll just have to see.

are you kidding? The hood is at my chin, at ride height with 30" tires...he's going to run ~40's so it will be 5" taller than that. It doesn't need to be any bigger.

That's a nice thing to do. Would be nice if everyone shared your sentiment and followed through with the deals they make.

Didn't realize it was that tall...

I was just saying that it would be easy IF (he ever was crazy enough to do so) he wanted to lift it more to swap springs. Rather than being maxed out at a susp/body lift.

I wish mine was that tall. I need someone to do my SAS.

How much he looking for the fenders? I may help ya out if they are a decent price. And after that, mine would be up for trade/sale of course...

I dunno if I want to run them though, the paint is what would kill me, thats expensive isn't it? Or rattle can do the job?
