Pretty simple build so far, but feel free to leave any questions or comments.

Finally got around to installing my Magnaflow system and the manifold spacer - definitely adds a decent growl.

Any ideas for what mods should be next? I'm honestly at the point where other then fenders I can't figure out what to swap.

Delete the front sway bar! Coilovers and shock hoops! Bed cage with remote resis!

Kidding but that's the plan for my truck whenever I get the time and money! Lookin good! I like the red coils

Finally removed the front sway bar and there’s definitely a better feel on the suspension.

Got a tailgate replacement, smoked the tail lights, and threw in an Apple-compatible head unit.

Next up is probably the glass once there’s a decent sale, freight shipping is the only thing that’s killing me. Probably going to have to find a shop that can fab up a tire carrier that fits the Utilitrac.

Still running the bulbs up front but took them off for this pic.

So the 2” AAL plus 2” block is 4” in the rear, does that mean you gained 5” in the front with just the spindle and coil over?

I’m pretty sure the coilovers are set to 2” right now so 6” total in the front. With how much rear rake the truck has stock it sits about level.

Sorry I haven’t had a chance to respond, i haven’t had phone service for a couple days.

I didn’t realize you could get that much lift without a drop bracket kit. Are there any negatives to doing it this way?

I hadn’t heard about any issues on the forum or noticed anything after about 15k miles.

The fenders still had to be trimmed to fit the tires but with 6” it wasn’t too much.

really nice truck StatzDaddy, did I also see your truck on Nathan's desert runner off-road website ? Sounds like you have the MK84 coil overs set at 2" with no sway bar ? how is the travel ? where I live the roads are terrible, pot holes, dirt roads, heaves. Im looking for a set up that will absorb the terrible roads, I plan on removing the sway bar soon and comparing the ride quality. sick truck man !
