Project Superlift/CoilOver Conversion Started Officially

Ok well I finally got part of this thing started....I had the gussets welded on today since the welder we use stopped by so I had him do it. This means I'm gonna get my *** in gear after having my Fox Coilovers here since Monday. I'll keep everyone posted, but hopefully I can have this thing knocked out by Sunday.

I don't think the truck has a Superlift, just a BL.

Alright well the front is all done, finished last night. Unfortunately the rear which is going to be comprised of my chevy shackles which I've had on for a lil while now and skyjacker 4" leafs will not be completed until tomorrow, due to a little backorder issue with the leafs. So, it sits right now looking like a Alabama prerunner lol. I'll get some pics up soon, or if Mike gets to it before I do which he may you will see the setup.

Thanks Mike for posting those......yea those pictures do not give my "Alabama Prerunner" look that I have going on right now justice lol. I've haven't had much time to drive it yet, just to work and back which is all of 1 mile or so, so I can't really comment on the ride. also, my coilovers are sittin pretty low right now, and I can probably crank another 2" outta them, we will find out tomorrow when my leafs get here!

Thanks for the comments guys.
