    Hey bud I might need to travel to Georgia to get my fenders trimmed. You did a good job on that and it looks to have paid off.

    Steve love the photo chop. Looks great!

    MuddySub, the light mounts are made of angle iron and some 1/2" square tube. They are welded to the core support. The lights are behind an expanded metal grill I made.

    The suspension is 4" Tuff Country EZ rides in the front. The rear is a home made shackle flip with a pair of leaves out of an 84 K10 truck. Also has extended shackles front and rear. ORD ones on front and drop shackles that I braced and put in the rear.

    On the spare, I am gonna ditch the fuel can and move the mount and hope to put a fullsize spare on it. I have the full size spare tire and another matching wheel, just gotta modify the tire carrier.

    Looks good. I want to see the difference in size between the 39.5 & Keith's 42s before I decide what I want to get.

    Can you give me some info on the rims you are running (brand, backspacing, how much grinding..)? I believe they are 15's.

    Well those pictures of that truck would look a lot better if that little guy wasn't in them /forums/images/icons/grin.gif J/K
    Looking good guy! Now that I just caught up with you you go and do this to make my truck look small again LOL.
    Well I may have a monkey wrench in Dixie run. Mom has been having some problems. She has a Dr. appt on the 3rd (and that's also my wifes B-day). I had planned to leave to go up around 10 that morning but need to hold off till I find out how the Doctor apointment goes. I may even need to driver her there. If I don't make it thats why.

    The rims I bought used from a guy in my 4x4 club. They are Stockton wheels. THey have 3.5" of backspacing. All I had to grind was the calipers, none of the mounting bracket.
