Love the old C series PUs, front bumper needs to go though, maybe something a little less cowcatcherish.
Keep up the pics!

i got em from lordco, 65$ for the pair, i believe they are actually fabtech lowering shackles but work good if u have a shackle reversal.

Lordco here says they cant get them, mind you i could put something in front of them and they would say no one makes one.
I'll try telling them i need lowering shackles, i have a shackle flip already.
