    With help from Brian, I have a line on a set of 4" lift springs.....

    So, Here's what I need to do:

    Sell Rough Country 2.5" lift springs and shocks - The have softened a good bit since I put them on ~2000 miles ago. Stock shackles included. Install help included. DOC, you need these!!!

    Sell 5 33 x 10.50 x15 BFG MTs with ~2000 miles on them - Spare never on road. Greg has first dibs and Doc is second if he gets the lift.

    Buy 4 shocks for a 4" lift. Recomendations anyone???

    Buy/Build a set of Shackles - James, can you warm-up the welder??

    Buy 5 Mud Dawgs - Thanks for the lead Jeff

    It also looks like I am going it on my own and buying that '90 FJ62 parts truck up in the Delta for Cruiser project funding. Need any parts???

    Thanks for the support.

    Don't listen to Tony. He is leaving us again! He is a wuss! We all need to vote him out of the club if he isn't back for Grey Rock!

    Later,

    How much for the tires?

    Look for Black Diamond shocks TPI sells them long enough for you.

    I have some 1" over FH40 greasable shackles I think they were from MAF originally. $150 for the set.


    And remember; Just cuz Grag now has a child that does not mean he is not a pole smoker. Here in the big city we call it "cover"

    Hmmm... Well first of all it is "steal" not "steel". I thought you passed the LSAT?

    It is FJ 40 not FH 40

    ANd it is a good price considering they are almost new and greasable with the bolts. MAF charges about $100 an end + shipping.


    I see through your cover. Getting Jess involved was a slick move. I can see the lawyer in you already.

    LMAO!

    But to answer your question regarding passing the LSAT. It is not to be passed or failed, only taken.

    Somebody buy my lift!!

    Everything included except U-bolts. That means springs, bushings, shocks, and OEM shackles for a fair price. It's a 2.5" Rough Country kit with upgraded Heckethorne Nitro Shocks. It is exactly one year old with ~2000 miles and has softened up nicely.

    Doc, Sani, John... You all need this lift! Who wants it?

    David,

    Sorry for the delay responding to you on the tires.

    I'm very firm at $500 cash for the set of 5. Greg has first dibs and Sani is second. I need to sell my lift first and buy the 4" springs, shocks, shackles, bushings, shims, bigger tires, etc.

    For shackles, I need 1.5" over stock in the front and 2.5" over stock in the rear. Do you have any of those sizes? I'm seriously considering making them like James did.

    Thanks

    Lash

    The Price ???

    Lash, What do you need for the $pring$? I've breen resisting the urge to buy any more parts until I actually start the reassembly process on the '79 but the springs on it seemed pretty flat. If your's are a steal (or a steel) I might consider it.
