i felt like i should finally start one of these especially because there have been some major changes lately. just to start this off ive got a pretty early pic of my bronco after i bought it. didnt have any pics of the first day unfortunatly, but this is after some new treads and little stuff.



ill update this a little later when i can.

new 6" springs


some deaver 5.5" for the front

those pictures were taken behind ecpi off 66. about a year ago. i followed some friends in unaware of the legality of the area. not doing that again. i do know of one other place behind the bp on manassas dr? its on the left past klines freeze on the way out of town. thats the only landmark i remember from over there. bad part is, its kind of tight for full sizes.

I don't have deaver rears. I have pro comp. They do come with small shims on them, but the angle isn't enough. I need some stock ones to make the angle right.
