At this point on either side at the leading edge its 6" off the ground but up underneath it is 5.25".

So you can clear anything less than a 5.25" curb with a CS front bumper and FRPP springs.
Perfect, thanks Gary

I'll have to measure the CDC and see how they stack up. Got a feeling that the CDC is lower and if so going to a CS front end would help reduce the number of scrapings I have(the CDC looks like crap right now, IMO)

But... there is the other side of my brain that says that 1K+ to get it all done painted and painting stripes just isn't worth it until I go forged.... ARGH. Too many things to do and not enough money to go around.

yeah... it can look good all it wants but if it blows up it ain't gonna do any good looking great sitting in the garage for several months.

Forged is my #1 priority, after that CS front-end probably. If it doesn't go the show don't mean sh t

really the cheapest thing too do would be to get another CDC and have it painted and striped... leave it in the garage for shows only and leave the one I have on it right now for all the day-to-day stuff.

Problem is the CS looks so **** good.

Wrong. The cheapest thing to do would be to say F it and not worry about it at all.

Dang that looks great! My bay was about as dirty as your's. Did you de-acid your battery using the soda method. Now your truck is ready for sale!

Okay we started a trend who's next?
