Well considering this is a build thread, I don't see anything wrong with asking for pictures. Please prove otherwise.

that Chevy is on 33s but will look pretty close. thanks for defending me but they are right i should be providing pictures. And heres the deal on installation. I originally ordered everything and planned on doing everything with my dad and his buddy. well they called and said 600 or so for labor and they will take off 350 if they can keep the rims and tires, they will install all the replacement parts i bought for free and they will have in back in 2 days. lol HELL YEAH! i jumped on that but regret it because i would be done by now. for 250 bucks i figured they can have my tires and deal with breaking rusty bolts and heating and beating. Sorry i didnt make that change of plans more clear. i do regret going there and i feel like they have lied to me in many ways but i wont go in detail with that in sake of their company and of my truck. Btw total cost came out to be like 4700. they ended up trying to charge me for installing tie rod ends and other parts they said if i brought them they would install for free and a couple other hidden costs made there way on my bill. But tommrorw when i go to pick it up these charges will be taken off the bill and some for the inconvenience they have caused me. i have skiped school 1 day, taken work off once, i have spent money in gas driving 1 hour to fenton mulitiple times for nothing, my dad has taken a day off work, i have had my dad wake up at 6 AM to take me to school multiple times since this is my only driver. i have been ride less for about 8 days. Bottom line i paid 4700 to have it back in 2 days and it has been 8.

true i will not debate you on that, i think they do good work but im very fed up with the "come pick it up done at 3" and then i go there and the guy has a broken part in his hand or the alignment guy had something come up so they cant do it today or there short on mechanics or theirs another project in the way that has to be finished first. if they would of said it will take a month and gave it back in a month i would of respected them more instead of it will be done in 2 days and everyday call me with an excuse.

it'll be a nice truck and build. I however would have went with the jeep route, done L/As and did the work myself. and saved the extra coin. i know what your saying about the deadline and when the truck will get done b/s thats always irritating. Sounds like that shop is rammin' it to ya pretty good on the install. O and Gunsworth its a build thread....Why does one person start a build thread? To show pictures and progress of something being build duh...without pics it makes for a boring and pointless build...just my .02

Just saying, that is exactally why you should always do your own work, whenever possible, for 3 reasons, it's on your time, you know what was actually done, and you get satisfaction of knowing you built it, not bought it

very true. no pics is dumb. i just cant get pics. they wont even let me in the shop to see my truck because of OSHA i guess. Yeah i should have done it myself and miss the jeeps but ill save up and get one in the summer hopefully.
