    I wont comment on the sore looser, hope noboday else does either... I would relocate those lights. Under the bumper is a great place to rip 'em off or submerge them in mud or water. Maybe a push bumper or a light bar. At least on top of the bumper. Anyone step n break the window on your rear door/step? Also my eyes hurt after looking at page 2. Maybe some auxillary back up lights. And build a 383 or drop in a big block stat!!:waytogo:

    Yea those lights in from are going to get flipped and yes i have stepped on the windows getting out once and i was lucky it didn't break. Also i have a 472 to drop in soon, just trying to get time and work out some of the details. Withmy set up i haven't had any rub YET but i am thinking of cutting the fenders( dose anyone know any measurements for the cuts) Thanks for the comments , more are welcome

    so i thought of something i think would be a good mod for your truck. your rear bumper seems rather enormous - if you were to reduce its size you'd greatly increase your departure angle. if you do towing and need a lower hitch, get one of those tongues which drops down, but still run your bumper higher. does that make any sense? i'm not really good at explaining it.

    Well the reason I have the huge drop bumper is, when i take the 39.5 boggers off and put stockers on i have a bumper height of about 32ish inches and thats just enough to get stickers on the truck but i haven't had a problem with dep angles yet. I hope to be rolling on 47's soon. Dose anyone know any dates yet on them. I heard 3 months
