Found a picture I took the other day. That spot in front is hers even though she won't admit it.

Bought IRO critical path 5.5 last week and started with the PB today. Doesn't look too bad underneath but man my stock suspension and leafs are in bad shape.

You guys are hilarious.

Quick Update. So over the last few weeks I started getting my parts in. purchased 4.56 superior gears from 4x4groupbuy. Received my new speedo gear, Daystar bumpstops and steering stabilizer from QT. And last but not least I finally made up my mind and bought wheels and tires. I ended up going with procomp polished 1069 and Nitto Trail Grapplers.

So hopefully in a week and a half I'll have phase 1 done. I can't wait, it's going to be awesome.

So we have been working on installing the lift kit, regearing and getting the new wheels and tires in and mounted. Waiting on the custom drive shaft to show up and next week will be addressing the clearance issues steering and moving the sway bar mounts.

Here are a couple pics of the progress made.

Ordered the last of the parts I needed to complete project phase 1. Still waiting on custom drive shaft to arrive from IRO. Hopefully it will be in this week.

Looks good man. I'm not big on chrome, but those wheels do look nice on it, plus it's different.

Thanks, was a very tough decision picking out wheels. I too am not big on chrome or over the top wheels. These are nice and bright but I factor that into them being brand new, I figure a couple runs through the dirt will tone them down a little.
