You will have a black colorado twin in the coming weeks. My Leitner rack with all accessories should be here next week. Already have my Tepui RTT. Waiting on the Baja Kits +2 kit to be finished as well. Still need to decide on wheels and tires.

Looks good!

So the Zone lift with the fox 2.5 coilovers you dont need the blocks that come with the lift? just asking because i plan to do the exact same thing but i dont want a stupid block sitting on top of my dsc shock you know. How did you achieve this lift without the block? and why the baja control arm?

today's accomplishments..... drilled 1 3/4 inch hole in my firewall put in a 2 inch rubber grommet slit in half plenty of room for lots of wires.... pull dash out tied into the cig. lighter for power for switches.... re dremeled out and reset switches it was a little slanted and my OCD wouldn't allow it lol......slid my tent over a little and it allows me to unzip my tent and leave shower in place....ground off bolts holding the tools on to keep from grabbing equipment....mounted my rear back up lights... ill wire them in the morning....pretty good morning...working swings gives me my mornings for truck upgrades lol... leaving in the morning for 3 day camping/ trying out the truck in the Jemez Mountains!!! Also for those of you that are unaware ive been pounding these threads for info... if you have a dash switch for your cargo lamps...if you look under your driver side rear quarter panel by the bumper, there is two wires sticking up that have the ends sealed with waterproof heat shrink... those wires if you tie into them are controlled by the cargo lamp switch.. so im going through the back inside quarter panel and drilling a hole putting a waterproof disconnect so when i remove my rack i can disconnect them and pull the whole thing off as one.. also just unscrew my cb antenna wire and she'll just come off as a whole.....

next challenge is wiring and plumbing the twin ARB compressor with the 2.5 smitty tank, gauge, and pressure reg. I placed it under rear seat its a no go.. under that seat, the bottom of the seat humps to the inside so the clearance isn't optimal. No storage behind rears like the taco, no go under the seats, sooooooo... under the radiator overflow on the passenger side im going to pull that out, pull the inner fender again lol.. put in paper stencil, drill mounting holes, bolt in from the wheel well, then plumb the air lines down the passenger inner frame rail, mount the tank in the spare tire old mounting location.. thats the plan.. anyone has any objections to that because of their concerns please speak up... also going to pull the passenger tail light and drill out and put the gauge/air reg/ and chuck through the rear bed for easy access...I have a 30 foot hose that will go around the truck for all tires etc...

Truck looks great brother!! I'm stoked to be working on mine shortly. I am working with a local guy to get a swing arm style addition behind the tailgate. I plan to mount the spare tire and a pair of rotopax with water/fuel back there.

Thanks for the reply, I'll put it all on order by the end of the week.
Still haven't decided what tire size to go with, with the fab four premium front bumper I can guaranty no tire rub in the front but not
sure how big to go before starting to hit in the back, almost want to go 35 and shave my wheel well if needed.

Any input would be appreciated, thanks.

I'll just say with this 5.5 lift these 33s just have enough room, i still had to trim a pretty good amount...
