i scored a full 6in lift and 33/12.5/r16 tires with rims for $400

also i ordered a james duff 2in body lift and i have bumper recolation brackets i made at work.

and i have a 2in leveling kit ill put with the coils.

if i did the math right ill have around 11in of lift overall with tires a little more than what i want but i know ill love it down the road

Looks great man. I just found a donor to put a 4.0 in my 90 so hopefully I can start tearing into mine. But you have a good build going
