well, it's in for its safety as we speak, but plans are:

s10 rear suspension
XJ V8 front coils
Gas Shocks all round (need to research for the best vfm)
31" tyres
Home brew front and rear bumpers (buying the tools and steel works out cheaper and i get to keep the tools Very Happy )
Homebrew exhaust from cat back (that way i can tuck it up high and tight)
Upgrade that lighting, i can spit further than those front lamps!

maybe a snorkle, just because! lol

if i'm correct the s10 rear suspension will give you 3" plus and the V8 front coils will only give you about 1"..........you got any plans to level that out???

personally i'm going with a rough country 3" lift. if you get the add-a-leaf lift with front coil springs it's around $230 and then get the rear s10 springs and put those in instead of the add-a-leaf and you'll be riding nicely.

i was only hoping for 2-2.5" of lift in the back and then use spacers in the front to level it out.
if the s10 is going to give me more then i'll have to rethink my strategy Sad
