Wow! I'm building almost the same setup just minus some of your fab skills. I'm probably gonna buy Shaffers kit. I just paid alot more for the same coilovers for my 73 k5. As in 1900$!

great idea with the fender brace. Any more pics of how you attached it. I.E the inside? I might just be stealing that idea

Sorry for the cell pictures . I left about 1/16 of the angle iron showing and then welded it to the fender ,ground it down and plan on a skim coat of bondo , if that makes sense ?

39.5 tires , the shocks they are 31.5" ETE at ride height.

I am not a big fan of johnny joints because they have very little miss alignment so your axle , frame brackets HAVE to be inline with your links ! Check out ruff stuff they are comparable in price , plus I think johnny joints are rated around 28,000 tensile strenth and the 1 1/4 ruff stuff hiems are rated at 86,000.

Now the hard part , bodywork ! Last night I aligned the doors and spread mud on the entire driver side even though it was fairly straight a skim coat will true up any waviness.

Had to swap passenger side door because it was a cheesy aftermarket one

and the dam door I replaced it with didn't fit, so I cut 1/4" off the rear of

a stock truck door . I measured 2 other doors and for some reason the

one that i put on was like 1/4" longer that the others weird .
