A Few Goodies

I was working about a mile down the street from the Summit Store in McDonough and bought me an Add-A-Leaf Kit and a 2" Shackle. I cant wait to install them on Saturday. I got them on Tuesday and it is just ****in killin me. I wish I got off work earlier in the day and I would knock one out one day and the other the next. Oh well, It will give me something to do after I get home from eating at Shanes for Free, LOL.
Here are the links of what I got for future references.

with all of the lift in the rear, what do you have planned for the front?

if you took the block out it might sit level.

I have larger tires. I picked them up the same week I got all of the other parts. I am just waiting till we have a little extra money to get them installed. And for the record, they are BFG A/T LT265/75R16.

Same here. I gotta wait till I get the money together.
I might be getting the new (well, used) tires installed this weekend hopefully but if not this weekend definately next.
I know it will look alot better once I get the tires put on. It will set it off much better with them.
They same guy I picked my A/T's up from also has a set of Mud Terrains for $50 in a 285/75R16. If I had the money I would get those as well to have some bigger tires for when I get the spindles.
