Lol, yeah. He only charge me like 10 bucks to do them...So I figured, what the hell. I didn't want chrome..

I finally drove it today..WOW...amazing ride. Just went to the Bronco's game..and must have turned every head in the parking lot..

The 5.38 gears make a huge difference..I have the same pickup as if I had a stock rig. I'm more than happy with the set up. I'm just happy its finally on. I was getting tired of waiting on everything to be powder coated and installed.

I like em...I'm so scared to grab the ones I got. Last ones I had, I ripped em right off the first time. I'll stew on these and probably give ya a call when I get back from my trip.

Thats one of the cleanest rigs I have seen yet... Your color scheme is perfect and you're running 40's on a fairly low rig :thumbsup: But I have to ask what the Ramicon is? Its cool, but maybe I missed something about your build... Do you have a hemi

Ramicon - well it started with RAM which is the emblem I replaced on the front grille. Ram goes back to my college days..my best friend in Alaska and I would say Ram every time a hot chick went by or as a tention breaker...or when we'd leave a message on the phone, or when we'd meet.. Corny...but its stuck with me for ever...even my folks say it to me all the time..

Hemi....well, when I pay this thing off...then I'll think about puttin the Viper engine with a super charger in it. I'm not getting rid of this thing....EVER.. So plans for the future are wide open. This will go through a lot of changes..

Thanks. As soon as I fully break these gears in and get this Hydro steering fixed. Hopefully while I'm gone this week. Plus I need to install bump stops lol...

Oh ok, gotcha... Was thinking it was refering to the Dodge Ram... It does look good with that emblem though

With a 1" body lift, I needed 3.25" front and rear extended bumpstops.

Without a body lift, maybe start by trying 4" extended bumpstops front and rear and see how much you are willing to trim.

In addition to extended bumpstops, I had to do a little trimming (although the Poly sliders required no trimming):
