Right after adding the the markmc 1.5" wheel spacers and the 265/70/17


After a little while of running the 265's i decided to lift it and got the radflo custom coil overs for the front and used a custom spacer for the rear auto level air ride

unfortunately i only had time to install the rear half of the lift so i rode like this for a day!

Shortly after lifting i moved to 33/12.5/17's dick cepek mud country's

where she stands as of 3/21/2015


That is basically where my rig stops for the time being.
However upcoming upgrades in the very near future is a PCM upgrade from pcmofnc, a tranny cooler, and E-fan.
in the slightly more distant future sits about 60' of 1 5/8 chromoly tubing for a lower half exo and a bumper with space for a hidden winch.
even further than that will be a proformance ultra narrow front diff with a transfer case to be able to center the diff to make a long travel set up. with a 14 bolt rear end with a dual triangulated four link. Since i know how i forget stuff I'll add more as it comes to me. :scratch:
