Ive got a few thing planned for it, changing the height and dont like the springs on top of the axles as it drives like a sack of spuds and veres all over the place, add a winch and some new shocks, thats just for starters

I was thinking of doing the 2" body lift and uprating shocks and putting leaf springs
back where there started!

Can't wait to see the pics, I've got a old cb kicking around somewhere in me
shed I'll have to see if I can find it

the body lift on these isnt worth it.... whats 2inches Shocked

i would keep the spoa and deffo upgrade the shocks if they are standard.

has yours got a steering damper?

iv decided not to worry about the rear winch just yet as there arent too many places to put it Crying or Very sad  so instead im putting a stereo in and gonna fit the cb Very Happy

it may be worth fitting one as they do make the drive more bareable

Get a decent steering damper fitted and some better shocks and bigger wheels and you'll be surprised at how much the better the drive is
Don't get rid of the SOA it's the best lift method there is
If you do wanna go lower again sell axles as they are and replace with standard (or I'm sure you'd get a good part ex price for some standards)
