Project Boogey Update...Big Lift and Big Tires...Pics inside

I took some before during and after pics. I'm gonna change the block in the rear for a little more lift to level out. I'm really happy the way it rides for such a big lift
Big lifts need big tires...8" lift with 37x13.5x18 M-16's

Let me know what you think

Here is the last factory height pic before going into the shop


Step 1..Take off bumper..It makes the front much easier to do


The old tired front end


Dual Shock bracket mounted up


A pic of the new goodies to go in


The pile of old junk is starting to pile up


The front is mostly done


My kid's like how she looks now


No more in the garage..

The Boogey is lookin good!
What gears do you have? Any plans to change the gearing? The reason I ask is that I see an 11k Travel Trailer in your signature. And those 37"s will reduce your gear ratio somewhat and may make towing that big TT a real chore.
I'm not trying to be negative, just curious if you have more in store for the Boogey.

Cool! Be sure to keep posting the work. How do you like the headers so far? Might be kinda tough to feel any difference with all of the other work in such a short time!

The headers fit really nice. The install was a pain in the neck.(broken bolts). The truck is still quiet since the rest of the exhaust is still stock.for now There is a huge difference in the performance. The throttle response is great and I got rid of the factory y piper flutter
