Took the doors off b/c of the 80+ weather. I also installed a 13 inch stainless antenna. I tried the short rubber antenna but it bends and wips against the window at speeds over 40. I picked this one up at Advanced Auto Parts for under $10. I also added a few plumbing washers to hide the screw that came with it to make it all black. It works great and looks better than the stock one. It doesn't bend like the other one did. Total cost about 12 bucks.

Took the huge stinger off the front. Now I need to find a bumper... Or build one. Any ideas on a cheap custom bumper?

No idea. Was on there when I bought it. Honestly, I think it's homemade.

I am the second owner, got it with 110K, now has 113K since I bought it I have changed the clutch, regeared to 456's, put new 33 duratracs on, cleaned from top to bottom, changed shocks to rancho 9000's and changed all the fluids. The original owner installed a 4" skyjacker lift and I will soon be making a 4" Currie. This is my wife's daily driver but she lets me pretend its mine too...

I picked up a set of 33x12.5x15 Mickey Thompson Baja MTZs with Cragar Series 342 Black "D" Window 15x8 black wheels off of Craig's list. Now that I found the tires, I am in need of a lift. After reading reviews forever, I am thinking the next step will be a DPG Ultimate kit. Will be ordered in the next couple of days unless I find something else on Craig's list this weekend.

If your just putting on a spacer lift you don't need to worry about bumpstops. If your changing the tire size start worrying.
