Ok, so a couple updates on this..

I no longer have the 36s (no suspension travel lol) so now I am rocking a set of 31s..

Also picked up this new to me front bumper


Going to drop it off tomorrow to get some things added to it (hopefully) and have some frame tie ins built so it uses more then the stock mounting location.

I have been tossing around the idea of swapping out the manual transmission for an automatic, but not sure where to begin.. I know a lot of building/cleaning will probably begin when the snow starts falling..

suspension travel is over rated. (says the guy with 33's on 1.75). Looks great so far though.

after some thought, The bumper is being modified before it goes on, and also having some frame tie ins made up so it is better then the stock mount

lol yeah I love how it turned out, I went to his shop to have him mount some tabs and build the tie in brackets, then we got to talking, and this is what I ended up with.

as in the tie rods and such, yes this will probably be a slow build thru the winter
