Thank you! yea I love this color. Yours looks pretty beastly! I had a 03 before this and loved it, it was only 2wd but I had a locker in the rear and I could keep up with my buddies jeep. It was a tank it could take a beating and I never had any problems with it.38993_420064574633_5334698_n.jpg 295947_10151135987414634_864252595_n.jpg

I would love to go to the Rally but I can't afford it since I just spent pretty much all my money on the suspension upgrade (hopefully it's worth it). I actually proposed to my fiancée in the gazebo in the middle of Leavenworth and we stayed there. And her dad proposed to her mom in Leavenworth 20+ years ago too!
The rally is not cheap. I'm going for the first time this year. I'm kind of skeptical if it's worth the family price, but at least if I feel that it's not there's a lot to do in Leavenworth and it's not that far from home.

@jordanbrooks Thanks! it's getting to be where I want it, I have this ultimate dream build that I could ever afford planned out so I'm just doing the stuff I can afford haha.

@roamingtimber Yea I'll bet it's pretty awesome since it's so popular and even if it's not it's another reason to get outside and away from the desk. And like you said there's so much to do and there are a ton other places you can explore. I am doing a 10-day camping road trip through WA and I made sure we are going through Leavenworth.

Finally put the Fox Coilovers and Zone UCA's on. Man the truck rides like a Cadillac. I can't wait to take it off-road on my upcoming camping trip. I just have to finish adjusting the ride height and it'll be all good. but my favorite part is980789_10154015520949634_8315675862618186487_o.jpg no more sheared off ball joints!

Nice to see the forum is back up and working! (knock on wood) I was able to go out and get some pictures. The height hasn't changed much from the Bilsteins, but I like a little rake so I left about an inch of difference between the front and back. I'm really looking forward to my camping trip the end of the week so I can really test the off-road performance of everything. I also removed the bottom air dam for better approach angles (ended up almost cutting the tip of my pinky off in the process).IMG_1318.JPG IMG_1319.JPG IMG_1323.JPG IMG_1324.JPG IMG_1348.JPG IMG_1349.JPG IMG_1368.JPG IMG_1317.JPG

Love what you are doing to you truck. I have an '07 Ram Quad Cab that I picked up in January and I am looking forward to building it. It will be my first full size build, my last was a Jeep Grand Cherokee WJ on 6.5" lift.
