    Well last week was the HUGE Offroad Rally here in Nova Scotia. LOTS & LOTS of carnage for everyone, I started it all with me "snapping" a inner tie rod in half. Reached in the back and grabbed one of the 2 brand new ones i had on hand and continued on our way. A ways down the trail i had a LOT of banging as we were moving, got back to camp and had a look under the old girl and seen that i kinda sorta CAVED the gas tank in on the old girl. All in all had a wicked time. Here are the vids i got from the Mudd drags and a little from the trail:

    Comming soon a SAS for the Blue truck and a set of 15x8 Black Steelies with 3.5 Backspacing to give the white truck a wider stance until the SAS is done on the blue truck then they go on her with a set of 33's. Also PRE-Runner style bumper bar for the white truck :D :D . Stay Tuned...........

    OK so update time. 2" BL started today, Soaked the body mounts for the last week and a half now, got nervous when put the socket on the first bolt, SNAP the bolt broke free and turned quite nicely so moved to next bolt and same thing. Long story short all the cabin and rear bolts broke free with little effort with the help of PB Blaster and a cheater pipe and some good ole muscle. Got at the CORE mounts today and my god were my nerves a wreck before i hit the impact gun, BUT to my surprise they broke free with little effort but LOTSSSSSSSS of PB. Looked under the mounts and dreaded hitting them after all the threads i read on them snapping the heads or not turning out but AGAIN to my surprise snap they broke free and turned out almost as quick as they snapped free. So all the bolts are free'd up and ready to be loosened up and other parts free'd up before i jack it up AND THEN IT HAPPENED the gods said oh SCREW you buddy and the skies opened and it POORED AND HAILED like crazy. So here i am sitting inside waitting for another chance. will get some pics of before and after.............STAY TUNED

    Good news got the BL done all by MYSELF :O :O . Only had a small snag as the bolts from the kit had 3 different sizes 6 shorter bolts, 2 little longer bolts & 2 REALLY long bolts. Well the REALLY long bolts were ABSOLUTELY NO GOOD TO ME so had to use a couple of the original bolts on the mounts at the front foot wells. Anyways all in all i got her all done. Here are the Before and After Pics :D :D

    Looks awesome. I have considered a 2" body lift as well. You didn't need to do anything like a steering extension or a radiator relocation right?

    NOPE the steering extension wasn't needed but did come in the kit. And the rad goes up with the body it's the fan shroud that gets relocated but i said screw it and unbolted the shroud then cut it into 4 parts to get it out and just left it off obviously LMAO ;) . Just make sure you use the ground strap brackets, take the brake lines out of the clamps on the shock tower on driver front and make sure the shift cable is free of the firewall. Other then that just take your time with jacking the body up and SOAK SOAK SOAK the bolts for a couple days. ;) ;)
