Rolled it out of the garage last night, had the edge of the front tires clipping the bottom edge of the bumper cover at full lock, but that is coming off when I can get a bumper built.

OK so I'm looking at options to repair this rust hole. Would I be better off cutting patches and welding to what is good? Or find a junkyard fender/ wheel well/ strut mount?

Yeah I thought so to for stock supension and all. The wife hates the tires cuz they rub at full lock on the bumper skirt(Until I trim it all back a good 2 inches!!). But it's my toy now!! LOL I've got some coil spring spacers I'm going to put ontheat should give me all the clearance I'll need.

Oh and I also checked my strut mounts, it looks like most of the weight is transferd down the frame by a bracket. So I tink I'm gonna let the rust repair go for now. Unless anyone thinks otherwise.

So ya got a link to Boondox? I've been looking for the site but can't seem to find one. Interested in there SAS kit.

I doubt it, between work, going back to shool, watching my daughter during the day and no money I might have it running and on the road with no lift. I've got 31's stuffed under it now. Have a set of Toyota axles I've been trying to get my hands on. Might go with a SAS leaf sprung front and rear with yj springs. Might keep the rear as is and get some bigger springs, all depends on how much the front ends up with.
