    Well I spent a little time on my mill maching spacers and shims then cleaned and painted the powersteering pump and started installing as much of the oem wiring as i could so now I can bust the wiring haress apart and start convering the oem harness to fit my sensor and hose connection rearrangement

    Well after all the mess thats been going on I finally got back to working on my Tahoe once again and taht things turning out great, I machined and welded out the new flanges for mounting the 2014 13.5" disc brakes on my 14 bolt sf and now I'm woring on my bumpers. I've used an extra class 5 reciever from a parts truck and leftover 3/16" steel flat bar from various projects at my shop.

    Well I moved on to upgrading the rear suspension so I can get started building my back bumper now. I made som reinforcement plates for the for relocating my spring perches and got the front perches relocated 3-3/16" farther forward and tomorrow I plan on finishing relocating the rear perches 3-3/16" farther rearward to give me the proper 60" spring mounting distance for installing the 2200# suburban springs that I took off a parts truck my uncle gave me which will give me extra load carring capacity as well as another 2 to 2-1/2" more lift on the rear
