No I didn't I thought about doing that I just put my blinker in my reverse light and wired up my reverse lights elsewhere. I have electrical gremlins in my wiring harness until I figure them out that's how I'm gonna keep it. I plan on converting it to two bulb set up tho

Gotcha. I don't wanna mess with my wiring so I might put my signal in the bottom. They look good on your truck don't see too many our years with them. Im getting tired of my eBay euros

will be following the D30 solid front swap. i'm interested in swapping my truck eventually...let us know how the leaf springs work out! it seems it would make the swap a ton easier just going with leafs which is appealing to me

Got the axle pretty much wrapped up just need to find a weekend to put it in!
Main cross member

Brackets welded on


Bolted up the driver sides needs a bushing that's why it's in level
Shackles on the back should make for a smoother ride

for the spare you should make something this that holds the spare behind the passenger wheel well
