Thanks. Still have some more to finish it off. End caps, finish the grill guard and filler panel between the pipes with some flush mount led lights. Then when I get a winch I'll have figure out how to mount it.

Another project done! I tackled the rear springs tonight. I added 3 leafs to each side from my original k10 suburban rear packs. I also left out the original over load spring. I gained almost 3". No more saggy rear end!







Next is trim the front fenders and mount some bigger tires on my 2wd rims. Still need to finish the front bumper, build a rear bumper and roof basket.

Nice! I've got saggy springs as well. The lift shackles help out, but I need to replace them

I've got lift shackles on as well. The rear was sagging bad enough that the shackles we're hitting the frame. After I trim fenders I'm mounting some 33/12.50 but I've got my 35/12.50 ssr swampers that are just sitting there.....

Thanks. Spring snow is challenging but fun. I really need new tires though.
