Old Man Emu rear springs for 2" of lift

I didn't do the bumpers 'cause I hope to get some tubular ones fabed up some time.

Dents, dings, & scratches by me. But Zaino keeps the untouched parts nice and shiney!

I guess I'll update as I need to. Hope to have more pics soon.
These ones are courtesy of my flickr account I have to put this in, I think. If any one knows how to use the other HTML stuff that they tell me to use and put it in this thread, please let me know!

Looks good other than the bumpers, feder flares and the back needs more lift.

Fender flares are for inspection only. Rear actually sits higher than front, just that the pics are taken on a slight hill.

I like it! Nice truck!

I vote get some bumper brackets, took me an entire day to make mine and install them (I made the rears, had the fronts cut from 1/4" plate)
Worth every minute

I just want tubular bumpers made. That's why I haven't made relocation brackets.

You too funny, Iz. I can't wait for the "good" video of my climbing that rock/hill gets off my friend's camera and up here!

Wash and Wax (well Zaino)

So I washed it while I was at the firehouse last nite. Hadn't done a hand wash in prob'ly over a year. I loved it and actually got a fire under my ass and got out the compound and zaino and made it prettier today. It'll never really be pretty unless I get a paint job because of all the trail markings all over it, but it came out just fine for what it is! I love Zaino bro's products. So easy and great results.

Nope. Gotta get some new rocker panels, because that's the only new thing...tons of rust on them. Truck still looks and acts the same!
