      i am in the process of doing more, but have run into a snag,

      i am in need of a torch to get some of the spring bolts cut off to get the old springs off so i can put on the new lift springs, when i get something going there will be more p;ics,,

      so i did some more on this thing today,
      ground of the spring mount rivets,
      [​IMG]
      [​IMG]

      than fit the one spring in place,
      [​IMG]

      front eye is close,
      [​IMG]
      back eye not so much,
      [​IMG]

      than i went around to do the other side the same,
      [​IMG]

      so far the bumper is this high, should be higher when on the 35's,
      [​IMG]

      guess that oil drum will not be tall enough soon,,
      [​IMG]

      more to come soon, i am going to pick up new spring mounts and bolts for them tomorrow,

      Looks like a good start;) Probably won't sit quite that high since you've got it at full droop right now plus the front end isn't lifted...or it doesn't appear to be.

      should see how high it will be with the back done in the next few days.
      I think the droop will be picked back up when the tires are on, or the body lift is bolted on.
      Hoping i don't have to cut too much for the tires, but i do have some fender flares to go on too,

      No the front is not done yet, after the back is done i will turn it around and get the front all apart,
