CBoug76,

Did you have trouble with tire clearance or rubbing? If so, what did you have done? Your ride looks awesome! I'm thinking of doing the same. Oh, is your speedo still accurate or did you have to get a new speedo gear.

CBoug76,

I did have a little trouble with tire clearance. If you read this post, you'll see what I had to do to correct it.

My Speedo is still original, and it doesn't show the correct Speed. I checked it with GPS, and it seems to be off like 3mph(I think that's acceptable).

Thanks, So far with the current cash flow this is I can afford to do, but I do have plans of a Body Lift, Brush Guard, and a Winch.

Cboug,
I noticed on the list of things you added to your ride, I have a '97 and was wondering how and where you added the tow hooks?

Thanks

Yes, The after Photo is with the Body Lift Installed. I know its not the best photo in the world, but someday I will get some better shots!

Wheeling has been put on hold untill I find time, for the last 14 months, I have be re-modeling my house, and there is still lots more to do! Not to mention that on Monday of last week, my wife gave birth to My Son and Daughter.
