Looks sweet!! I like the body flex!! Your truck reminds me of my (daily driven) '92. Any plans to add more doodads? (dual exhaust, brush guard, winch, etc.)

What brand/type are the rims?

I wouldn't mind putting a lift on mine, but w/226,000 miles on 'er, I'm of the mind "don't fix what aint broke"

Looks good!!

Mike

I'll drive it like this while I build a SBB for my 76 Buick Century, then I'll take it appart and do the following

Yeah I plan to build front and rear bumpers with tubing, warn winch, and a interior roll cage tied to a boxed frame, 360 MPI crate motor with NV4500 in place of the nv2500 and v6! Axles and front suspension will be coil sprung 78 bronco setup with a heavy duty rear to match. Susp lift over stock of 5" with Duff lift kit in front and custom leafs in rear.

It's my block heater plug, the nights are -15 to -20 already...

I'll be using 16x10" wheels and 33x12.5's when the new axles are under it!

The rims are American Eagle eagle alloy 058 pollished 15x8 wheels. They have an offset that makes them stick out a bit on the front and makes 31's tough to fit without a bodylift.

The front t-bars are cranked up and the rear lift is 2.5" blocks, the body lift only took a few hours.

Mine is the 2" lift and it looks perfect! The lift was easy but if your truck is auto you'll need to cut the shifter linkage and get 2" extension welded in. Because my truck is manual I didn't need to do that, and I had no other hangups. Did it my self in about 3 hours taking my time and without help (unless you consider beer help hahaha). :rck:

Oh yeah, I had beer help with mine as well!!! :rck: :rck:

Sounds like yours went about the same way mine did, with very few hangups. I had to replace the front brake line going down to the frame from the master cylinder, but that was all.

i got away without replacing the brake line, and as for the shift linkage I chose not to weld on the extension, instead i heated the linkage with a torch and took some of the bend out of it, made it jus that little bit longer to work correctly
