    Put in 4" rear block, 2" add-a-leaf. Front- 6" springs, unsure of brand(bought from a friend in arkansas that parted out a blazer he had), braided stainless brake lines in front, replaced both front calipers cause bleeder valve broke in both of them. 2 new rotors(one was "slotted" from somene running it to metal on metal then replacing pads), rear bearing seals.

    I might put in spacers between frame and tcase crossmember to help angles. Will start searching for a 14ff for the rear and save for gear front along with 8 lugging the front. And paint will happen within the next month cause that is a must with the rust.

    Wow Justin! That can't be the same truck that went wheeling last week! Nice job man. I really think that it needs to get a little revenge on the tree trunk that incapacitated your truck last time out!
