Originally an Arizona car for the majority of it's life, it explains the major absence of rust on the truck. Original owner used it as a back-country wheeling vehicle, and set it up as a lean, mean, off-roading machine.

Audio
255/85-16 BF Goodrich KM2 tires on black Wolf Rims (recently changed from 265/75-16 Dunlop Mud Rover tires)
Suspension
Fronts: Bilstein shocks / 2" lift springs
Rears: In the back it's a home-brew setup with extended shock mounts and adjustable long travel shocks, and retainers on the bottom. Also there are some serious home-made dislocation cones as well…they cover more than 1/2 of the length of the spring - this is a huge help too with getting that full travel. It sounds like the wrath of God when they dislocate, which scares whatever passenger I have in the truck at the time, but does the trick and allows the axle to drop ridiculous lengths. A quote from my buddy:

"your truck makes this un-holy bang/clang/boing/pow noises, and you guys go 'oh, that’s ok'….it certainly doesn't SOUND ok - how do you know everything is ok? I'm pretty sure everything is not ok".
