I dont think it was covered (or maybe i missed it) but did you have to get longer control arms to recenter the axle as others have mentioned when using the 2" level kit vs 1" kits? I really want to level mine but have limited funds and don't want to have to purchase longer control arms right now. Sorry if i missed it

You don't need to with the stock tires. I haven't had any issues. If you do 35's or 37's you'll want to though.

Will do! They said it should be about a week before the powder coat is done, so I'll let you know when I get it back.

Nice looking bumper. Are you gonna paint the clevis's black, white, or just leave em silver ? Mine are black but i have been debating whether to try red (truck color) or not.
In WNY State. 2008 Red QC PW G56. No lift yet, stock size tires. It pulls an 18' 2016 Starcraft AR One Extreme, 3500 lbs.
Load Pro 35 helper springs. 2015 A.R.E. MX Series custom cap. PCP front diff cover protector. Mag-Hytec 6 qt rear diff cover. K&N replacement air filter only. Dual grounded throttle body. Winch TPC bypass. Fab Four rear bumper. DURA BAK lined rocker protection. And a bunch of new front end stuff.

G-56 Gear ratios: 1st) 6.29:1 2nd) 3.48:1 3rd) 2.10:1 4th) 1.38:1 5th) 1.0:1 6th) 0.79:1 Rev 6.29:1 --- = 78.01613:1 Crawl Ratio
-------------------------5.94:1--------3.28:1-------1.98:1-------1.31:1-------1.0:1-------0.74:1-----5.42:1 ---- = 73.675:1
545RFE----------------3.0:1---------1.67:1--------1.0:1--------0.75:1-------0.67:1------------------3.0:1 -------=37.21:1

2013+ 32.47 crawl ratio...............Can you see the trend ??????????????

I debated whether or not to paint them, but since I plan to use them for their intended purpose, I wasn't sure if painting them was a good idea. I think I'll leave them the way they are for now ... Maybe in the future I'll paint them, but I'm not sure yet. Thanks for the compliment ... The old girl's coming together quite nicely.

White Knuckle Rock Sliders are being fabricated as we speak and should arrive in about three weeks, PIAA reverse lights should be arriving tomorrow for the rear bumper, Line-X of the bed and rocker panels should be getting done in the next couple of weeks ... aaaaaaand I'm out of money :0(

You seem to have a few extra donuts there. Perhaps an overzealous tire shop employee just tossed them out and wasn't counting? :lol: they look sweet.
