Plan, did you say plan, I don't see a plan, do you see a plan

Well, since you are coming I figured we'd do the big loop north to south, cut over to Hackett from the south end, come back to the loop and check out the new elk trail I found going back to Westcreek. Then we split, you going North, the CS people going South. That way you should be safe from drowning, unless, of course, you run off the road taking the pass back down to Deckers. We can vote on time, but probably early since we are going to be putting on a lot of miles. Of course, if it's just the four of us we should be able to take a lot of the trails at 35-40 so that will shave off quite a bit of time...

Oh yeah, the coffee shop in Deckers...

You have a good basic start. The combination of spring lift and body lift you chose should work very well. Hold off on control arms for the time being. When I do the four link this spring I'll have some leftover arms and pieces that would work for your setup. That will be an awful lot cheaper than buying new

Awesome Ed that is greatly appreciated. Do you think I'll need to lower my t-case and need longer brake lines?

No problem

You should be fine on the brake lines with that lift. I have same lift and didn't have to change them. Usually only starts to be a problem around 4 inches of spring lift.

T-case should be fine, again for the same reason. When you do the body lift you might want to do a motor mount lift at the same time. Save having to move the fan shroud and set you up for a tummy tuck later on.

That sounds fine to me. Then Justin, Dan and I would need to head out of Woodland Park about 8:30 to be in Deckers at 9.

We can meet in the McDonald's back parking lot about 8:30, that sound OK to you guys?

Oh, before I forget (which could be any second now) there is one thing that you do need to check. At full droop with the shocks installed make sure that your rear driveshaft u-joints don't bind. If they do you just need to grind out the yokes a little bit, no need for an SYE, but it probably will be close. Odds are pretty low that you would ever hit full droop but it is better to be safe than sorry, especially if it took out your ring and pinion.
