    Well.......that is why I need a set of your shock mounts for OEM applications on the 14 Bolt. Are you going to be able to make me a set of shock mounts for the 14Bolt?

    Lightbar is just a KC lightbar - many places sell them.

    The front bumper was bought in Texas from Brown's Welding in New Braunfels. The rear bumper was designed and constructed by myself. Checkout my website for details and pic during the construction process.

    I used the Rough Country with the rear springs - 4" It rides great and it is even better than the setup I had on before with my 31" tires.

    "OH MY GOD!" was the first thing I said about my truck when I saw it /forums/images/icons/shocked.gif . I just got done with a lift and 3/4 ton swap on my truck as well /forums/images/icons/wink.gif . Now it looks like a man's truck instead of the grocery go getter! /forums/images/icons/cool.gif Still considered a "wagon" on the registation, though /forums/images/icons/blush.gif

    I bought ProComp Xterrain's - 315/75R/16 (basically 35's)

    I mounted them on Eagle's new Series 184 Rims. 4 Wheel Parts Wholesalers did a package deal.
