This is still my daily driver and my last car payment is this month.... meaning more money for mods! The first thing was the Suspension lift.

The next step will be to change my Ball joints, control arm bushings and figure out a new strut to use, then I will get the body lift on. When I'm bored I just sit there and look at what I can/want to do, and there is a nice size list. This has been a long time coming and I am just now starting to be able to afford it. There will be more to come.

So far I've have managed to tear my front end all apart. I'm waiting for my lower control arm bushings to come in and it will be back together up front.

I have the rear put in, with the exception of my Z71 springs that need to be installed

A few things have happened since my last post (all those years ago). Installed 3" body lift, bought a roof rack and installed, a few things for the inside which will be posted later on, and also got my MDB Winch Bumper kit built and put on. I plan to do a few more mod's to the bumper like some lights and a hoop for the grille.

Over the last couple weeks I have gotten a few things done. Added a tube to the front of the bumper and lined it with under coating, changed out the roof rack mounts, mounted and wired up the switch panel for lights, added a second battery, power inverter, wired up the winch, found a spare tire, added some lights to the rear and also got a 8.6 rear axle installed. I have a couple projects in progress right now. Built some rock sliders that are getting installed this weekend, also working on a 2 pod gauge mount for the "A" pillar. Here are a couple of pictures of it along the way.
