I like the look of lifted K5s. They look mean, not as sexy as a FSB, but they look good.

Cj, If your truck will be capable of this with just the 4" lift, I am going to start/finish a SAS before Justin can order any more parts for his.

looks really good CJ. I bet the front will settle a little after a while, those springs sat unloaded for so long they tend to "over-arch" Your rear shackle angle is pretty good, I would probably leave it. For better flex you would move the braket toward the front of the vehicle, thus causing a more severe angle, but this also affects street manners and you would not want to tow with a severe shackle angle. Anyways I really like it, looks good, so whats next on the list?

Fix the fuse problem, tune up, and extended breaklines

Oh yeah I forgot about the fuse thing, tell me a little more... You said everytime you go in reverse it blows a fuse? What fuse is it, what else is on the fuse? What are the effects of blowing the fuse?

Its the turn signal and reverse light fuse. I put a new fuse in after i realized it was blown and checked te turn signals and they worked so i thought it was fixed. Then i went driving and it was all good till i went to park and put it in reverse and POP it blew... i am thinking it is going to be something on the wire cause we did a lot of messing back there with the flip and lowering the tank
