these are the most recent pictures of how it sits. the rust is getting bad but i think ill drive ti until it completely falls apart then buy another one from out of state so i can reuse all the parts i have bought. i nees to straighten the bumper out again. seems like every time i try it just falls down after a few weeks.

those are the mud grips they're 31s and they have a lot of tread. each one took about 5 ounces to get balanced which i have been told is excessive but i have had them up to 90 with out any unnecessary vibrations. there is a picture of what happened to my spring pocket. and some pics of the new hardware. and finally a picture of the life time u-joints i picked up at murrays. i also got ome new motor mounts today.

got rear buhings, brackets and shackles in. i also bought some new manroe shocks. since they are fresh and i just got a line on some teraflex revolver shackles i might go that rout. I also piecked up an early throttle body from the bone yard today. it was pretty rought but i got it all cleaned up. im waiting untill i have some more parts to put it on. i also have a lead on a port matched manifold. ive also got all the stuff to do the front axle shafts. work makes a situation where i end up buying parts faster then i have time to install them.

monroes were cheap and i was short on cash, i paid $42. i bought rear shocks for a 2000 ranger 4x4 which are longer then stock and seem to have more travel then i can take advantage of with a 4" rear lift. the truck rides alot better with monroes than without shocks.

and here are a few pictures of it right now some flexing pictures, maybe thats gay but what ever

ive been thinking and i think im going to try to Build my truck to a mehanically solid 31-32" truck. i really dont want to go bigger right now and i still have to daily drive it. i think finding some traction aiding device for the rear would be cool, a little engine stuff and a winch by the end of the summer.

i got some new motor mounts, radious arm bushings and i just closed the deal on a front locker. its in the mail shipped today. i got the entire third member with 3.73 gears, new seals and a lock-rite installed and a c-clip eliminator all shipped to my door for 250. not a bad deal considering the locker alone is over 350 plus shipping.
