Thanks.

The 3 springs, that's the way the guy was selling them on ebay. I'll probably sell the third.

Working by myself today so it's a little slow going. Right now I can't get the pass. side bumpstop to come off. So before I go ****ing nuts, I figured I come inside and cool off.

I also need to get my friends hi lift over here. I can't get the leafs up in there without the truck being higher. I need to just go and buy myself one. On with the pics...

New shackles and u-bolts.


Shackle/exhaust conflict.

Fixed.


Need to get the truck higher.



Driver's side bump w/ extension. If I can ever get the damn pass. side off it will look like this too.


Alright, beer drunk and cigarette smoked. Maybe now I can get that thing off.

They give you bump stop extensions with the kit. So I'm using them.

Don't know if I'll ever need them to be there, but they're going on!!

I'll probably put it on ebay to see how much money I can get out of it. I was thinking $150 or so.

Gotta recoup some of this money I been throwing at the truck.

yea.. but then you gotta buy another leaf pack, and then you'll have 3 unless you can find someone just selling one as well. or the company will sell one individually.

A friend came over and helped me finish up for the most part. I forgot to do the drive shaft spacer. So that's getting done today and I still have a couple loose ends to fix up (recheck everything, breathers, coilover adjustment, and ...).

Almost done....

Yeah, the u-bolts are long. I wasn't sure if they would work at first without the stock block. But there is just enough thread on them to get everything tight.

I probably need to hack them down some.



Rear.

48" to the wheel well.



Front.

45 1/2" to the wheel well.



79" to the roof.
