btw the b2 is too fucking low. im determined to get a 4" susp lift. that would put me at a perfect height to my taste.

i was thinking about it all evening and i got on the TRS classifieds and found a 4" susp lift. it consist of 2.5" tuff country axle drops, 4" skyjacker coils, 3.25 degree camber bushings, radius arm drop brackets, new radius arm bushings, new coil insulators, all for $230 shipped. hell yes.

I'd say your gangsta welding looks o.k. and I like the design of your bumper.
It's hard to tell but make sure to relieve the edges [ grind them at a 45 degree angle, but not to a point ] especially if your welding 1/4" with 110V flux-core. That welder isn't strong enough to penetrate 1/4" without a bit of grinding and do more than one pass.
Are you giving the b-ii a suede paint job any time soon or what are your plans in that regard?

thanks dude. yup you can bet i "v"ed all the edges, but with the mounts i used the 220 stick welder just for a bit of overkill, but as you can tell in the pics i was getting decent penetration, with the color of the metal turning purplish around the welds.

i bought the paint for it a couple days ago, went with army green. got a gallon of primer, gallon of paint, some acetone, reducer, activator, all that junk for $210 including my discount, regular it would be around 270

Cool, I'd like to see how you do that. I have no experience with paint but have been reading up on it.

winch and all wiring took off


lights off and wiring out, figured its a good time to take a pic of my badass custom harness



stock bumper on




painted the rad support and grill.






and this is what im working on now.. wether it goes into the b2 or not,, we will just have to wait and see. engine build is more of a long term project. its a 5.0 HO, im converting it to carb and doing a rebuild on it.

grill done in bedliner.



my positive battery cable was way to short with my new battery so i got this today.



new wire is 4ga, much heavier than the whimpy stock one, and it got an aux power wire coming from it just to be badass.

also one of the best mods i done to her so far:


thats right. its so awesome

also took out the wiring the previous owner had installed for trailer brakes and some other ****. he sure as hell never wanted the wiring to fall out. what a pita
