Thanks,the exhaust was something I seen on another B2 years ago and thought it was a cool idea.Matter of fact the first one I seen even had a 90 bend after it passed thru the body and he had a "snorkel" to the roof rack{guess he liked deep water}

The lift is a older James Duff stage 3 which was 3" when new. The rear springs are going flat so I put Belltech 2" shackles on the rear to level it back out.

The tires are 265/75-16 maxxis buckshots.

Yes 3.73

I got my front bumper done except for the skidplate.I will finish the plate later. It bolts up to the winch mount with 4 bolts and can be removed in about 2mins should I need to get to my winch for service.Mounted my old 140w ProComp lites.



Below the winch plate you can see where I had to cut off the tubing for the skidplate because it was too low and hit my steering so I will modify it for a tighter fit later.


Now I just need some 2" rear blocks to raise the rear up a bit more to clear my new 33's. These rears cut cut up pretty good last time I out from catching the fenders when they got stuffed.

Since I can now rotate between all 5 tires I took my plate off the spare and mounted it to my antena mount.Dont know why I didnt figure that one out before,its much better .




I had to trim the rear fenders a bit and roll the lips.The rear of the truck has been very bouncy with a full size spare so I ordered a set of ProComp 2-2.5 AAL to get me some more clearance and to bring the spring rate up a bit.

And I am amazed that it feels no different as far as power goes with the bigger tires. I think I will put 4.10's in my new axles since I can get cheap used 4.10's all day long and I am sure it will work great.This 2.9 is alot stronger than I ever thought they were! I cant wait to get a 4.0 in this thing tho!

Cant wait to get my Ex disc brake 8.8 in it now! Anyone know the width diff between my 8.8 and the 7.5? I hope it pushes the rear tires out enough to match the fronts.

Gonna go with 4.56 gears now. I might just use a 31 spline T-lok in the rear for now but I have my locker for the front which should make this thing pretty dam good off road.

Been talking with a guy named Shawn on BII.org about his front end setup. TTB with 17" of travel! I just need to get the right coils and a new set of longer shocks for mine and I will be able to copy his setup.

4.56's are ordered and Add-a-leafs are half done{diner break}

Was tossing around the idea of just sticking a mini spool in the stock 8.8 open diff and see how that would work. Think its a bad idea for a street truck?
