They stopped making the RCD kit so now the only way to mount coil-overs is to buy the brackets from a member on the other forum or fab up you're own, either way coil-overs are a sweet setup and based on everyone else's experience totally worth the price tag.

Oh, that sucks. I didn't know much about them to begin with. It would be sweet having them though.

Got my OHC painted to match my console and installed two LED panels to match the two panels in my dome light

[IMG][/IMG]

Some of my bigger mods this summer were the "Brand New" bushwhacker flares I got from a member on here. They were bedlined and supposed to be new never installed. One had a crack and the bedliner was peeling like plastidip in places (no prep was done). I decided to keep them and took the time to strip them down fixed the crack and prep them the right way.

[IMG][/IMG]

[IMG][/IMG]

Ive had a set of shackles sitting around for a few months so I installed those and maxxed my bars up front. I got new shocks all the way around some gabrial ultras up front and ranchos out back.

[IMG][/IMG]

Ive had some rust seal sitting in my garage for over a year and today when I went to replace my hubs I decided while I had the front end apart I would get the front end components coated

I have some 06+ mods done/in the works, modded a set of clear corners and working on a set of 06 corners with an led panel I will probably run instead and threw some 06 tailgate emblems on as well. Also have a set of 06 power mirrors on the UPS truck as we speak

Duplicolor truck bed coating, I've used it on my previous flares and bumper, prep is key for it to last

06 mirrors installed with power and have some color matched paint on the way.
I have some small cracking on the front of my powerdome which is the reason I have the bug shield. If I have enough paint after I do my mirrors Im going to do some body work and toss the bug shield in the trash

Had an interesting morning, luckily I was the leading car in a 5 car "pile up" and have nothing to worry about. Heres the "damage"...

Bent hitch for me. A little background on the hitch, got it for free from a friend brand new but it was for a full size, ended up shortening it and making custom mounts on the ends, It held up pretty well if u ask me

had to snap a positive pic

My coil-over conversion has begun! Tonight I started the tear down, tomorrow I have a buddy coming over to weld on my gussets. I hope to have all brackets installed and bump stops chopped off. And by the end of the weekend I hope to be complete. I would rather spread the work out over the course of a few days rather than rush to get it done in a day. Still waiting on spanner wrenches and limit straps.
