Hi Toez, nice mixture of color. Very blingy...:) I like the plastic gear cover. Where did you get it?
Summer is getting closer and we'll have a blast. I like the design of that rear upright, and will make something like that.

hey the only other thing i did was just mount an aluminum brace off the side support with a couple of nuts and bolts.u just gotta secure and center it all.got all the metric nuts and bolts from homedepo ,and the aluminum also from HDepo,the cool thing is the cover also has a center inspection cap that lets u peek in and see if the gear is still secure:cool2:

whizzy the shocks made a night and day of a difference, lots more travel and the truck doesn't bounce like a basketball outta control anymore, i cant remember the grade oil i used, i know i saved the old container but i missplaced it sorry,as far as the mods to mount the shocks theres a few the front is basic if u have the aluminum arms i just revered the lower mounts and centered them out ,the rear were a bit trickey as far as making them have full travel,i just cut out some braces were i centered them and shimmed them evenly,i had a set of integy lst on it b4 and they kept the truck more stout than the gpm ones i got on her know,i mismatched the 2 shocks together and it alowed me to use the integy thicker shafts onto the gpms shocks .i think u can do a better job than i ,i sorta rushed it and never bothered beefin up the mounts i mocked up,if u have the time and patience do it u wont regret it:cool2:
