ok so its been along time comin here!!!
when i got my truck it had a decent front end on it
but me bein the non mature 18 yr old that i was took it off road and beat the balls off of it well ive needed a front end (ball joints) for about 2 years lol
well it finally ripped apart my steering rack and everything else on my front end
well now that im 21 i thought id grow up a lil and stop beating on my baby
so i stayed late at the shop threw the truck on the lift and did the whole front end

ive done no trimming to fit these tires either

i used moog and a brand new steering rack from ford
and here it is with the rims that i bought from JOSHC and the new 32x11.50 bfg k0's







and here is my other toy 99 suburban 8"lift those were 37" bfg's now there worn as hell
