Unexpected/Thank You Forum Members Build

Hi All,
Last summer, a pipe hit my hood and windshield, which let me upgrade my hood to the then new Power Dome, with some help and information from forum members.
A few weeks ago, I was hit from behind and into the car in front of me. A few forum members passed on their take-offs which let me put the insurance money towards new bumpers and a budget boost.
I then found a great deal on some new wheels and tires, courtesy of Discount Tire Direct.
So: here's one pic, and I'll be posting more as we go on as well as thanking those who helped. In the end, I wouldn't have done any upgrades without the fine folks here. Thanks!

You are a bit shorter than I would have expected.

Just kidding, glad things are working out for you

Ha! Yes, that's my son who rolled the wheels around the garage a couple times!

Installed the lift, brakes, and yours today! I'm real happy with it. I've got new bumpers going on in a couple weeks, so that'll be even better!

Finally got the bumpers on. Just need the correct rear Rancho spacers (on their way), d-rings for the rear, and d-ring brackets and rings for the front bumper mod, and I'll be done!
