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,

Looking good, did the back end up being as high as you though it would?

the snow is almost gone now, and work will get going pretty soon,,
i shelved the Dana 30 idea, and took off the radius arms to lengthen them instead,,
i want to run the ttb instead,,
