    I want to say first off I have no pics yes I know but anyway I got a few things done this weekend.

    Both new upper control arms that included ball joints
    Both new lower control arms that included ball joints
    new inner tie rod ends
    new outer tie rod ends
    two new hubs
    all new sway bar bushings and end links
    new torsion keys for 2" lift
    four new shocks
    new add a leaf 1 1/2 lift
    put my new head light covers and tail light covers on
    wire brushed the frame and painted with rust encapsulator

    Ran out of time to finish the 3" body lift but got most of it started. Then all left is alignment and install the new 16x8 DC2 with the 33" KM2 tires.

    Wow, I'm just trying to get the wiper blades from my back seat to the windshield.

    Nice upgrades. Can't wait to see it all finished.

    I'm going SAS, SOA so I don't have to all of those things every year or two. Great job on all of the frontend rebuild.

    Thats a long list for a weekend. I just want to replace spark plugs. Your Trac is gonna look sweet! Mines almost done with an SAS/SOA. I wanted to do it before I blew out IFS components running the heavy 35s.

    I don't blame you I did the same thing. I've just about finished all my upgrades for a while so it's on to maintenance for me.

    That's why I never finish anything. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

    My wife loves it she is the kind of girl that could care less as long as it gets you there it is all the same. I keep trying to change her but after 12 years think it might be a lost cause.
