    just placed an order for djm 2" drop spindles, and pinion angle shims. once they are installed the truck should be around 4/3.25

    i may end up pulling a leaf in back, but not right away. im going to be rocking a camper shell for a while as i have a trip planned beginning of may so it should drop the back a touch. i dont want to repeat what i have right now with the cali lean lol i couldnt take it anymore.

    Cool truck, not much on the jap style idea but I do think that a lot more low and wide wheels/tires would be awesome. Also look into Zr2 flares, they are a factory flare and will look right at home on that truck. Only problem is people are pretty proud of them and usually want a lot of money. Either way def interested in updates.

    Many years ago when I was still just a lurker of stance and I drove a zr2 I came across one s10 (one of the only stance builds with zr2 flares) and I fell in love. I've always wanted to do it. But you're right, people always want assloads for them and when they pop up in junkyards they are usually the first thing to go.

    just some random pics of ideas. first one is square body with fender mirrors, second is the one s10 with zr2 flares. believe he is running 15x10 in front and 15x12 in back.



    the picture is shit, the guy built the truck, painted it, and then sold it. never to be seen again. he never took any good pics and posted them. i really think its my destiny to show the world a stanced s10 with zr2 flares lol

    My good friend was planning to do that exact same thing, but ended up selling his S10 before we took the next step to finding a set of the flares

    please use them !

    it feels so good to be back at an unreasonable height!

    it will be sorted eventually, just have to aquire the funds for some zq8 springs.
    they are currently sitting at my local junkyard waiting for me

    nothing new, just some random pictures from the weekend.
    i had to help my brother with his brakes and nothing went the way it was supposed to.
    so the truck got zero love. i do have plans to work on it this week/weekend though

    I can't quite put my finger on it, but there's something I really like about that maroon Subie. Is it packing any big mods under hood?

    so the trucks been down since last friday.
    i installed my pinion angle shims just to find out that they shoved the driveshaft all the way into the transmission. so i ordered some set back plates.
    they came in this morning so i got everything buttoned up.
    the grind still happens in second gear very lightly so ill probably get the driveshaft shortened soon.
    i also painted some tire letters

    spent almost all day messing with the truck. got my transmission shimmed, grill color matched, emblem and air cleaner cover matched to my wheel centers, put on an exhaust hanger, washed and polished the truck, and finished off by finally using a real camera to take some pictures

    i have not known what to do with myself at work with stanceworks being down!!!

    not much has happened with the truck. mostly just been helping others with their shit. roll my buddies rx8 fenders with a bat because im a hood kid...i guess


    then cleaned up under the hood. it looks even better in person.


    only other things are replacing the clutch on my fan, and some valve stem caps. because are you really ballin' if you rock those black plastic caps?! currently have money burning a hole in my pocket so i may end up going and picking up those zq8 lowering leafs sometime this week. they will lower the rear another 1.5" also i found a 4:10 rearend for $40 but the dude wont fucking text me back! we shall see how things play out

    That color matched grille did wonders for the front end. Looks about 100x better than before, imo.

    thanks dude! i definitely felt that it was a step in the right direction. i just need to get a new bumper and respray the valence then it should be even better. the valence isnt actually the same color, and the bumper is twisted with lots of rock chips.

    This is really coming together. The teal grille looks dope, and the white detailing on the tires brings to mind the Camping World Truck series racers. Loving it so far.

    BTW, when you get ready to purchase a bumper/roll pan you should check out LMC Truck. Their head office is like a 10 minute drive from my house and they make really high quality products.They might have repro'd ZR2 Fenders, too.

    thats really funny. i was just looking at my lmc catalog a few hours ago for those two things lol i usually just use them to get ideas. they are quite pricey. theres a set of flares at my local junkyard right now. i just only had channel locks when i went last. the rollpan is starting to get pretty low on my list of things i want

    Looking good, paint on the grill came out really good and makes it look 10x better.

    went to the junkyard today with much higher expectations. but ended up only getting a bumper cover. im pretty stoked about it. little more trimming and some paint, then it should be good!

    taking apart


    and a shitty picture of it together


    next project will probably be trying to install some foglights. i took them out at the junkyard so i could get the cover a bit cheaper. i think ill end up getting some led headlights and then some led pods for the fogs.

    got the wheels painted black, and just ordered some led headlights. plan to lower the rear sometime soon by removing a leaf. i found out that zq8 leafs are the same as regular s10 leafs but with the middle leaf removed. really happy i didnt spend nearly $100 to figure that out. cool stuff is coming, just trying to get my motivation back after some shit happening in life
