Looks good, leave it on the bump stops. Low COG FTW!

Cool, thanks guys. I think I am gonna make some tabs for the C's. I moved one of my bump stops last week and I was looking at it, I might have contact with my air shock when I droop it out.

Got my radiator mounted, had to cut up the core support quite a bit to get as much room as possible.

Started installing my t case, I realized that if I want a flat bottom, and if want to use the clocked 205, I will have to remove a large amount of floor, not a big deal but it might make using my factory seats tough....might be time for my poly bucket seats.

I also picked up some steel today to make a new tierod, then started on my new shackles for when I shorten the frame, put on my brakes and got a plan together for new lower shock mounts.

Automasters is where I get most that stuff. Usually have it in stock.

Tell me about the 205, try lifting and installing a 203/205 doubler .

460+c6+205 is a heavy ass combo for the cherry picker I was using when I pulled the one out of the yellow truck.
