    So this is what has happened over the past 6 years of owning my reglar cab mini.

    How she sits today

    [​IMG]

    Starting from the begining I bought her used with a slavage title for a 8900 back in may of 2007 after my fullsize 1500 finally cost me my last dime. Machined a spacer lift, mounted 31's on the stock steelies, and swapped the buckets for 200sx seats.

    Then I swapped the stock stereo after a few configuration to what it is now. Still have yet to take a pic of my sub box but that is going to change in a few months. 3 Memphis amps, Eclipse touch screen with Ebrake bypass, Focal 3-ways, and a Indy Hurst out of a scrambler.

    After having a decent year, money wise, I finally was able to get the wheel and tire combo I wanted. 265/75/16 on 16x8's. Also finally did the exhaust, highflow cat and magnaflow muffler. 2.25 downtube back.

    Couldn take the 16mpg's anymore so I decided to finally give up on the dream of being LT and linked in the rear. Took the lift off (still forsale) and decided to mini her out. Exhuast has been redone, DJM arms are at the powder coaters, 6lug leafs are on, Higher PPI stock height Eibachs are in the garage, as well as XR Billys, spindle drop spacers are on, just waiting on beefed blocks and DIY notch to get to my front door. Will be sitting 4.5 up front and 5.5 in the rear. Still need to order 12way QA1s.

    Good luck on the 5.5 drop in the rear. The front leaf perch will get dragged on everything...

    Though, it will look properly bad ass with that wheel/tire combo!

    Damn, that things been around the block lol. Looks good though, it's cool to see it go from stock to lifted with big tires to lowered with nice wheels.

    She looks so much better dropped. Speaking of Morgan Freeman, he's actually making an apperance at my work because my company is doing the premiere of his new movie. Something Olympus.

    Well got the front end slammed today. Repowdered the DJM arms only to have to grind some of the welds down at the reinforcement spot because they did such a shit tastic job assembling them to ensure that the lower balljoints seated properly within the mounting holes. Not a happy camper to say the least with the fit and finish of these arms.

    Front end feels solid though with the new bilstein struts and higher ppi stock height springs. Rear end slides around planted on U-Turns and these Gmax tires really hook up good. Hopefully blocks show up later this week to finish then to order QA1 12 ways once I know the height of full extension.:D

    The pic that I posted is the completed wall. Minus redoing the wiring with cleaner 16ga-4 wiring for the mids and highs, and 14ga-2 for the lows. Here are some pics of the old setup before I used my amps as the crossovers and the old Polks I had before the Focals.
