Getting in to build for my old red 92. Need to buy battery and have read and heard that Sears DieHard Platinum (AGM) is better the Optima (D34-78) Yellow Top. Any thoughts?

Ive been on awhile but still new posting so any advise there is good too..Recently finishe lift portion of build here is after.

Lift came out about 6", using OME frnt/r, 3/8" beefy shackles, HD Adj Trac, LCA, Discos, ACOS, bumpstops, Brake lines HDW etc.. Shimmed for rear pinion.

The suspension is really sweet so far but only couple hours on it.

Future: Getting tires this week, just going 31s but they should work OK. Dont really want to trim until I have better REnd, gearing and bit more HP. Time to build some S&%T.

Finally collected most of my parts and started the rear suspension. Shackle bolt - welded nut broke loose and was a huge pita... here is how I ended up going.

I went through the floor to get to welded nut bracket, really sucked but it is stout for now. I could see Fabbing up some good Shackles boxes someday. But I got past it, notice this rig is being built in the dirt..

The back was inch higher than expected. The will be a SYE/DS in near future.

Camera phone but you get the idea. Had to post with the new meats. I am really happy with the look and stance of the beast with the lift and 31s...for now.



Hard not to go at least 33s with the lift but I'll run these a couple years while I beef up what I need for 35s.

What do you guys think, look OK?
