Well I figured I would be the first of the noobs that recently poured through the flood gates to start a project thread.
Ok so, I went from this

to this

then to this

then to this

and today I then today I went back to this

and finally to this



It's nice to drive it with a mild drop again. It'll probably stay this way until I decide to do air ride or get rid of it and dick with something else, I'm getting kinda bored with it to be honest.
Future plans are to paint the hood, grille and bumper, do the cab corners and some kind of yet to be determined wheel/tire combo. I've been thinking about SLP Zr1 replicas, C5 wagon wheels or some soft 8's.
Any input and/or ridicule is welcomed. lol

Thanks man. I aligned my front fenders a little better today but I still need some shims for the fender at the core support to fix the wacky door gap. It hasn't been right since I've owned it because when I got it there was no front end on it.

That and it was just too low. The exhaust was getting smashed to hell, I had to park in the street everywhere because it wouldn't make it into most driveways, the A arms bottomed out on the frame in the front I could go on. lol
At the most I may throw a inch block in the back and rock it.

Yeah, that would be nice. Just enough to even it out a little more.

I appreciate it man. I'd like to ditch the fogs but the frame ends are so ugly behind them. lol
Maybe after the gray inserts on the bumper and grille are painted black and I paint the front half of the frame AGAIN they'll blend in a little better.

I think I want to do a 1'' block in the back too, the rake is just a tad too radical for me the way it is now.

Yeah the mirrors are a definite upgrade....AND they're functional, unlike the m3's.
The bumper is 96-97 Bravada, it won't work with the GMC grille and headlights and it needs to be modified to work with the S10 grille and headlights.

Yeah it's bad. lol How low are you wanting to go? 4/4 is ideal for the MI. terrain. lol
I didn't run into problems until I went lower than that. I run a 205/65/15 though, the stockers would rub the front inners alot over bumps.
