Not sure yet, still have a lot of work to do and not a lot of time to work on it. I would like to go ASAP but we'll see.

Update: redid the front shackle setup, got it setup for more down travel, grooved the tires and setup my onboard air system (no pics of that though). I still need to drop the front another 2" I'm thinking but it sits pretty level now. I'm going to pull a couple leafs out and see where that gets me

Tested it out on a ramp today... Major improvement, very happy with how it turned out. I was just barely starting to lift my rear tire and a pic of how it sits now before I pull a couple leafs out

Pulled a couple leafs out and sucked the winch bumper in to the grill and added a Chevy bow tie to the grill

Finally got some front fender work in on it. I welded tabs on the tube because I wanted the fenders bolt on so someday when I do the motor I can just pull the fenders off and have complete access.

Ok I got my fenders done now, on the passenger side rear fender I welded in a gas door, reason being I set up my onboard air right behind it on the firewall so my air hook up is behind the gas door
