I've been so busy. I will soon. My insurance is due this week. Hopefully I'll have some extra to play with this week.

Haven't had time, Chris. Been busy with work and school and Alexis. Soon though!

----------

Bought some DJM 2" drop springs and a flip kit after work last night. But it's cold out, so they might wait till spring.

----------

Ranger has been switched to fire/theft/vandalism coverage and the Explorer is out until next spring.

you should do this to your truck bro and I love the wheels, they look oddly familiar

Build a turbocharged 2.3 if I had a spare motor to build I'd be a turbocharged 2.3! Or a 4BT but no matter what you do it will be sick! And did you fix the rear turn signal?

Got up at 7:00 am yesterday, worked 8-6, and went right to my buddy's house after work. We finished up some 3.5 bushings in his 97 302 swap that he lifted with a coil spacer and my old springs from the gold truck. His positive camber was bad. We finished his up around 8:30, and got underway with mine.

2" drop springs with a half coil cut out of both springs and we flipped the 7.5. I have some 2 bushings but we didn't throw them in because we finished up around 2:30 this morning and it's almost an hour drive back for me. I'm happy with it though. Rides really well for stock shocks. I cut the bumpstops in half up front too which really helped the ride.

The funny thing is, these springs and flip kit I used came off of Justin's truck after he bought it, so I have his old springs in mine and he has my old springs from the gold truck in his.
