    After three days working on the truck here is what I have accomplished. I would like to thank those that helped, CaveBlazin and Sapper.

    Also thanks goes to DP_90K5 for his awesome work and great technical support during installation.

    That thing looks GREAT!! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif How do you like the rear carrier? Hard to tell from the pics, did you get some sliders too?


    I'll be meeting DP in Shreveport this Sunday to pic up my front bumper and sliders (the rear bumper w/ carrier is already in my garage). /forums/images/graemlins/woot.gif

    I was super impressed with Dan and his workmanship when I got my rear bumper. I really like the stinger look on the front bumper you got. Couldn't use the same design on mine though 'cause my winch (8274) would have forced it to stand waaaay out in front.

    The bumpers really change the look of your truck, very nice! Are you getting different tires after the 8" lift?

    What do you want to know when you say specs of my truck. Put a GM Goodwrench motor in it a few months ago, stock axles and a th350 with a 203 behind it. Nothing really special done to the truck yet, but getting there.

    I am going to go with bigger tires, I just want to get the 3/4 ton axles underneath it before I go bigger. I don't think the 10/12 bolt can handle 38's. Well I wouldn.t wheel it hard with them on there. With the winch, I bought DP's 12000 from him. It was mounted in between the frame rails underneath the front radiator core. It is going on next month when I change the front clip to an 84. Heading home for a few weeks this summer to Montgomery, will have to drive down and look you up.
