To caption my pics, here's what they are.
The first one is the lift blocks I made out of aluminum, 2x4" 1/4" wall.
The only place I need to cut for clearance.
The amazing amount of room between the tires and fender pan.
The new beefy bolens gt front axle
The original one
And the new "stance" (she gonna have a phat azz)
And that folks, is gonna be the new rig, going to update as I do more work to it. The winch is going back on, battery is getting relocated, possibly gonna get a Chevy alternator, new fuel tank, and the wheelbase is gonna get stretched 3-4" by moving the front axle forward. I tried to upload a pic of my new rear rack, but it didn't go through. Planning on making a hood rack eventually, might use the old rack I had on it.
