Yeah those babies were a pretty penny. I did not factor the price in to the budget. But, after research on shocks, I decided to fork out the cash. The rest of the work should be done next week. 456 in the front w/ 8 lug outers. 37" Goodyear Military's. I installed them on the rear and now she is too tall to fit out of my garage. so much for parking in there.







New steering Box.

Does it ever end?

That's for damn sure  :o
I did the same when I built my front end, then had to do some head scratching to figure thw best way to getbit ou of the garage! Worked out in the end. You'll love the performance of those shocks, well worth the money. I was a rancho fan for years, but no comparison here.
