    re installed my light bar after fixing the end caps after they broke. These are 100x stronger and beefier than the ones that came with it. Im hoping no more issues.

    Also installed my diff drop. Was easy install once i had to go buy the right length bolts (i dont reccomend RevTek diff drop). Definitely helped my angles, im hoping this will stop my CVs from flinging grease everywhere.

    More bumper updates. He has a body lift so that's why there's a gap.

    06+ headlights for the blinkers is my guess. And most guys with prerunner bumpers just don't run fogs

    Any plating at all? (I assume the center piece will get a skid or something)

    Today i ordered two new 14" 2.5ID #700 springs for my coilovers. Also purchased two new lock collars for the adjustment because previous owner decided to adjust with a hammer. This should fix my sagging and give me more height without as much crank

    PAC makes them in every wright imaginable until #750. $97 a coil though and they're built to order so I have to wait two weeks now. But finding my right spring will be worth it.

    Now I have to figure something else out. PAC has a 3-8 month wait list for these. That's ridiculously too long for my impatient ass.

    I'm actually kinda surprised you haven't snapped a spring with how compressed yours are

    Spring isn't so much compressed. Its only a 14" spring. Nowhere near fully collapsed. And nobody else makes them, they're are literally the only ones.
