Just finished up my 5/8 drop yesterday, im down the shore for the holiday and stoked because this thing rides like a caddy. I got my CC roll pan coming in this week and the front should settle a bit more so it should get rid of the slight cali. Here are some iphone pics for now, full photoshoot with some new mods early next week. hit me with some thoughts and comments!!!!!!!

thanks man, i used MCG 16" spindles and MCG 3" coils for the front. for the rear i used the MCG flip kit and the MCG 2" shackle. I have some summit/DT shocks which I am a huge fan of. the install was a PITA but all said and done it was well worth it!!!!

na not really mang, im 25 and have never to this day have ever owned a vehicle that wasnt hammered to the concrete. I drove a total of 150 miles through urban philadelphia into the new jersey coast and bottomed out maybe 3 times on hella silly bumps. compared to my hondas and some other whips this thing isnt shit as far as ride goes. I LOVE IT. Go back to 8 and bring the front down to 5, youll smile :)

im going to 5 in the front but i a leaving the ass end up until i get some helpers or something, because i bottom out 50 times every time i drive my truck. i was thinkin of getting some bigger bumpstops, i have the pancake ones that came with the drop right now and when it bottoms out it goes BANG!!!

thanks for the responses! i am running the stock 16" steelies with 235/75's. i am planning next to section my tranny crossmember and raise my tank up. I may go a bit lower in the front with some trimming inside the wells.

I am going grab some nnbs tahoe or some ltz 20's. Anyone have any idea what size tire would be best to keep the same overall diameter that i have now?
