    Congratulations on your engine. Be sure to post pics on the build-up. BTW, I just saw the pics of your truck, very nice. I have a 90 Jimmy, too and I just ordered a 4" BDS and was going to purchase a shackle flip from ORD. But, now that I have seen your truck I am strongly considering canceling my 4" lift and purchasing a 6" BDS. What size tires are on your truck? I really want to put at least 36's, which I am told I can have with a 4" and minor fender contact. Also, I am curious about your rhino liner. With the top on do you notice a decrease in interior noise or is that just some gimmick that put in the brochures to dupe suckers like me. I am going to do it (after I save some pennies and sell about 400 quarts of plasma) but, was just curious if it really does as they claim. If it does, then I can use that information to convince the wife I need that I need to go ahead and get the liner now. She doesn't like riding in it with the top with all the road / tire noise. Any help is appreciated and be sure to post pics for all of us who have to live vicariously through all y'all who are lucky enough to do this awesome engine swap. <font color="red"> </font color> <font color="black"> </font color> <font color="black"> </font color>

    The engine was built by Sunset Racecraft of Lubbock, Tx. Sunset is an offshoot of Scoggins &amp; Dickey and they do work for S&amp;D.

    Rene, I have a pic or two I will post just for you.

    Lance, our tires are 37x12.5x16 SSR's. They would just barely clear if driven on the street. We cut the fenders back to the inner fender, 71/2" from the door. Yes, the Rhino lining cut down on the noise from a bare interior, but not as much as carpet and insulation. One quick question for your wife, "With the top off, the howl of any mud terrain tire, the rumble of the Flowmasters, and the shakes and rattles of a Off-road vehicle, how can you hear the road noise?
