    I’ve got some 14 in shocks you can get for cheap. Or Mount them further in on the axle.

    I've got my eye on another set from a buddy in Boone. Thanks dude. (gonna be the last thing I put on it is shocks so I got little bit before those) still have quite a bit of stuff to buy for it. links...heims...roll cage stuff (euuhhmmm)...driveshaft tubing...u joints....ay yayai

    On a funny note, I'm so embarrassed of my "temporary mock-up" links that I refuse to take a picture of the side view. like I know we've all joked about my past certain rigs or maybe all of them being an "abomination"......BOY LET ME TELL YOU, these "temp" links I made are about as abomination of damnation as I've ever seen but I can't help to laugh. My wife got a kick out of it when she saw them since she knows the whole "john fuller control arms" thing on here and OMG, she just died laughing at these things. She told me "I dare you to put them on your forum" I said nope, nope, nope "honey I'm too embarrassed to look at em" hahahahaha

    In my experience, this type of thing just kind of happens.

    I guess it's worth posting now that's it's finished minus the cage. Still gotta paint, build a dash, lights but it's wheelable.
    $1600 so far, 3" lift, 39.5s, 119" wheelbase. Not too shabby of flex.

    Getting bender in a week so a month hopefully it's done. It's gonna be a bad ass cage, mostly to promote my tubing work

    Yes that's a factory tie rod cut and turned up for higher clearance. Gussets added on both sides front and back
