Tysr, man that truck is clean, that looks good!

I agree 100% about the valence, I drove around the block once with the valence on, pulled in the driveway and ripped it off.

Talked to my buddy that owns a fab shop about building a full tube bumpers(Front tube bumper simular to sapperb and rear tube bumper with integrated hitch and tire carrier), For front and back I'm lookin at 300 bucks all together.

Heck yeah man it helps to know people that build stuff. I thought about building my own bumpers but for the cost I'll have them made by someone that fabs stuff everyday. Pretty much I'm buyin the material and paying him a few bucks to bend and weld it all.

I was lookin at the N-Fab prerunner bar a while ago, they look cool but they are only a $300 bolt on light bar. I think this is going to be a snowball effect, get bumpers made...get long travel...get caged...get rid of the 4cly... Now all I need is a bunch of cash to speed the process up...

re: Lifted 2wd pics, post them!

I like what all you guys did without the valence, my only problem at the moment is I have to have a front license plate being in Ohio and I'm not sure how to get it on there.

Unfortunately I don't know anyone who can make me a bumper and I have no idea where to get one.

BillsDuster, love the red! I tried to find a red one when I bought my truck, no luck though.

You can sell the valance for some extra $, then put the plate on the bumper

hang it under the bumper angled back I'm not sure if it's 110 percent legal but i do know the oshp are front plate enforcers to the bone i have got so many front plate warnings and only one ticket though. most of the time they say that a front plat is just a tip off of stolen vehicles so they have to check and make sure it's legal.

I'll get more with a better camera soon. Paint on the front end is a bit screwed up. But function before form in my opinin.

re: Lifted 2wd pics, post them!

Looks like your passenger side lights tabs arn't locked in on the core support. It's easy to spot because the light is touching or nearly touching the hood.

I like your spare tire setup, I might be setting mine up very simular to that.

re: Lifted 2wd pics, post them!

The passenger side is clipped in, the driver side is not. The clip wont reach the core support on the driver side. It hits the fender first.
Thanks for the comments. They are appreciated

Re: Lifted 2wd pics, post them!

Here is a couple of pics I highjacked of Red_devils truck, he hasn't been on in a while.

He is running just spindles and shackles with 31's.




And because I know it will be asked, yes he had to cut because his tires rubbed bad.

After trimming:
