Awesome dude! Our rigs are very similar. You even have the Hanna rear bumper! I love the way your ride sits. I think I eventually want to go from 2.5" lift (with 1" rear spacers) to a 4" or maybe 6" I don't do a ton of rock crawling but I do some.

Looking forward to seeing future updates!

Hahaha! Our rigs are similar Michael,  I agree you'd love the 6 in.... You're rig would look so good with it (Although it looks great as is!)  Do/Have you ever been to Montana Michael?  You'd love it over here.

Hi Coleton. Welcome to the site. And your rig looks really nice. I like the  mods you have done so far. That is not a lot of miles for a '94

Thank you Frisly,  I spent a long time waiting for the right cruiser and glad I waited for one with lockers!  Finding a 80 with less than 200k is pretty difficult, but I have no fear in my 212,000! She runs great...  Need to pin point a power steering leak I have,  one of these weekends...  I have a few ideas sketched out for my roof rack as well, might build it this summer.

Thank's fella's.... I've encountered some "death wobble" in the Slayer recently.  At about 35-45 MPH she gets pretty bad, then past that it's golden.  I'm wondering if steering box is done for,  will have to dig deep into it this weekend but if anyone has any tips on what to check for I'm appreciative!!!
