So yeah time to update this a little bit.

Bought some H1's with the 36" Goodyear Wrangler R/T II's, which will only stay on it until I can afford something else, probably Irok's. Bought new centers from Copperhead Fabrication. Got them welded in, then cleaned them up and painted them.





I think it looks pretty good, but what do I know.



Started working on the 3-link. Got the lower arms and crossmember done. Next is to do the upper link and my high steer. Got F-250 knuckles and got the passenger side drilled and tapped to match. Ordered my high steer arms from Koz Offroad.





So as of now my rear is completely done minus new gears and brake lines. The stance looks pretty good and I'm pleased with how it has come out so far.

As RDK_YJ88 said, it's a secret...only because he is the creator of them. He does however build kits to order.

Well, finally on all 4 tires. With taking a promotion at work and school starting I haven't had ANY time to work on it at all. Today RDK_YJ88 and I finally did and we accomplished exactly what we set out to do, get it on all 4 tires and out of the garage.

Now just have to finish steering, brakes, gears, and align the front a little bit.
