Bought new upper control arms (only $27 each) and also bought new shock mounting tabs, and brackets.

Going to weld it all up together in the next few days. (very similar to how it is now) Just raising the upper shock mounting points on the hoop and lowering the shock mounting points on the control arms to give me the required 3" of shock travel.
A lot of work for only an 1.5" more (thats what she said..LOL)

So, been a long time guys. Just got to thinking about this place and saw this was the only thread that was up. I was thinking of trying to tag all the old guys to see if they checked their emails. Crazy how times change.

Time for a truck update. Last March I installed the Rough Country 6” lift (see previous post and pics)

Ever since then it has been bothering me that the truck really needed larger wheels and tires to make it look better.

So I finally decided to do it.

The setup before was :
Nitto Ridge Grappler tires size 325/60-18 (33 inches tall and 13 inches wide)
Moto Metal MO970 Gloss Black wheels 18x10 -24offset 4.56 backspace with 4.1” lip

New setup:
Atturo Trail Blade Boss tires size 375/55-20 (36.5 inches tall and 15.50 inches wide)
American Offroad Renegade A106 Gloss Black with machined spoke edges
20x14 with -76 offset 4.51 backspace with 8.2” lip

Pictures do not reflect how Bad Ass and Huge this thing is in person. Its Massive Now!!

These tires measure exactly 16” wide (3” wider than the others)
And the tires are 3.5” taller than the others.

Here are some pics:

Thanks! yeah it looks like a beast now. lol

The weather out here is really amazing!

So far this is what is so great about Arizona weather.

We started swimming in our pool on April 10th!
NO Pollen to speak of. Well, I know there is pollen, but none that you can see .... like it piles up on everything in Bama.
No bugs, I never have to clean bugs off the front of my car.
We stay out on our patio a lot... I have seen one mosquito and one fly, hardly ever see ants (and the ones we have seen are tiny)
I can go multiple weeks without washing my car because it rarely rains. Just hit it with the California duster once a week.

I know its going to be hotter than Satan's A$$hole in a few months, but I dont think that its as bad as everyone makes it out to be. but we will see.

The no bugs would be a huge plus. I’d imagine the heat wouldn’t be so bad since the humidity would be lower. I didn’t mind it the few times I’ve been out to Vegas

Exactly, my wife has been to Vegas a few years ago and she said the same about the humidity being lower its not as bad.

We are flying back to Alabama in June for a week to visit. So I will get a little reminder of the humidity.. LOL
