    I got the new seat installed, well most of it anyway. The passenger seat bracket was bent so I need to find another one. I also got the new rear lift springs in, 14sf rear and geared the front. Now I have 4:56 gears, rear locker, and rear discs. I need to go find some mud now!!! I still think the rear sags still so I think I will order a zero-rate to bring it up another inch too. I was going to sell the 14sf and just regear the 10bolt and would have had enough money to finish the interior, stereo, re-tint drivers door (someone broke in) but I got impatient and had to have it done ha ha. What do you guys think?

    Ok I know its a little to chrome and not beat up for most of the crowd here but it is my DD

    That's a sharp looking truck. My beatup ugly rig only gets compliments on the trail.....on the street I get glares of disgust:grin:


    Keep your truck looking nice and get yourself a beater for wheelin'!

    gears

    How do those 4.56 gears feel? What gear did you have before?

    It looks level to me. The rear fenders are cut lower than the front on K5's. So don't judge rear sag by the tire gap in the fenders. Measure from the trim line, quarter paneles or somthing other than the fender opening.

    I had 3:73 before, but the 4:56 are great. So much nicer to drive and way more seat of the pants power.

    thanks for the compliments guys
