Default Ordered Some More Parts!

Hello, My Name is Brett and I'm a Mod-A-Holic !

Mods....Mods...Mods....When does it end? What is the cure? When is
enough, ENOUGH?

Just ordered the Bushwacker Pocket Style Fender Flares for the RAM. The Kicker Bar kit for my lift kit arrived today. (Time to breakout the MIG Welder). Looks like it's going to be a busy weekend! I'll be sure to post pictures of the work and mods.

Stay Tuned...

From what I've seen on here, once you get started, there is no stopping and I don't believe there is a cure, so enjoy your affliction, lol! Look forward to those pics!

Well, I have a Skyjacker 6" lift installed. It does not come with the kicker bars that connect between the rear crossmember of the lift and the frame (or in the case of a 09-10 RAM, the transmission crossbar). They are used to brace the front suspension for "Spirited OffRoad Driving " Rough Country and BDS Lifts offer these bars. RC sells them as an add-on to their lift. They are made to bolt on to their rear crossmember. I will just weld the brackets to the SkyJacker rear crossmemeber. Not an absolute necessity but, I have been known to do a bit of "Spirited Driving" !

Ah, the old, "It'll never break, so I'll weld it on routine, huh?"

So why not buy the RC or BDS Lift to start with? More power to ya though. I can't wait to see it! Oh, and you have a truck with a 6" lift already installed and there are no pics? I agree with Paris.

Well, there are some pictures in the Photo section. As for the lift, I'm in Louisiana and SkyJacker is a Louisiana company so I wanted to give them my business.

The parts came in this afternoon. Would you believe RC shipped me what I ordered PLUS 4 new leaf springs and shackels for a CJ ?!?! I refused shipment on the other suff even though I wasn't charged for it. I figured there was some poor guy with a CJ that wanted it more than me!
