jacksonsnorth will become famous soon enough

Well I went in a bit of a different direction. I just pulled the trigger on the Bilstein 5100 ride height adj. shocks for the front. Be here next Monday. Ordered the Toyo LT 275/65/R20s instead since I will be towing a camper and don't want to deal with sway issues etc. They actually measure 34" and only 10"+ wide instead of 12"+ so I won't have to deal with the rim/spacer issue either. I can use my stock rims and get an 8 ply all terrain tire and ditch the Badyear tires that I only managed to get 30,000 miles out of before they were wore out with belt/cupping/wear issues. (And yes I rotate every other oil change whether it needs it or not and had an alignment immediately after noticing wear problems around 16, 000 miles. So these mods coming soon to photos once they are done will post before and after shots. Thanks much for all the advise guys! Greatly appreciated!
Almost forgot, Body Shop doing my linex next week soon as I get the other stuff done first will call and get my appt. already got a price of 340 under the rail. Thinking that's a good deal since I have my body work done there whenever I have had past issues.
