What's the plan, more details...
Big brakes(coming in January)
Moar low(hangers/spindles/c notch)
Sm 20s with 305/35's on all corners
6 speed swap

The drop wheels and tires will come after I make a pass in the spring. I want a 10 second slip.

What brakes are you looking at Dusten? I had the same dilemma and ended-up going with the 15" kit from Todd at TCE as they should easily clear the 20" wheels. I looked at the 16" kit also but didn't like the fact that it's mostly for 'show' with limited pad choices, etc. and I also didn't like the fact that the calipers would no longer match the rear calipers as I'm pretty OCD about stupid crap like that.

Put in a new battery. Old one was almost 8 years old. Threw in an agm from Northstar. It's got all the power now.

Put in the 4" upper and swapped back to my pump gas tune. Threw in 15 gallons of 92 after draining the e85 out.

In the last 100ish days I retired, moved across the country, got left by my wife, lost my mom and got a new job. It's been hectic.
