Here is how she stands. First pick my car next to my buddies who has a 2in lift. Took it out to the beach for the fourth!

 

What I have done so far:

 

Cb radio

Stereo/new speakers

4in lift (SOS)

29 tires KM 2

Custom Skid plate (SOS)

KC lights in the grill

truck bed liner interior / outside lower trim

 

 

To do:

 

Next up is to find a d/r transmission and then do a 2.2 swap.

Finish removing carpet. 

Truck bed liner for interior trim

Winch

Bumpers

Roof Rack

possible paint job/ (stay blue or go black!)

Nice build man! You build the 4in lift kit your self?

As far a 2.2 swap you'll love the power with those 29's! Adaptor plates you can get from inferno fabrication, and I offer 22 swap harness services.

My buddy builds the kits, SOS fab. As far as the harness, last I check people were asking to  trim the harness for 250$. I am not going to spend that much on a trim.

Highguyslifts.com or Gloyale on here does harness jobs for less than that. I think it's around $180

yeah next summer i will have to figure out how to correct the camber. I have only put a couple hundred miles on the car since I bought it two years ago. In two weeks it goes back to sitting under a tree until I get back from school.

Finished doing the lower trim with truck bed lining. Looks good. Will take better pics tomorrow. Getting her all dialed in before the big camping trip this weekend! Also built a fishing pole holder on my hatch on the inside so when you open the door its hanging up ready to hit the waters!

i got 86 accord springs. the part no through oriellys was sp02025

 

they are in stock here in AK so they must be in stock where you are.

 

i also put the monroe  4 runner struts from a 98 4runner 2.7 4wd p# 71352

 

lifts the back 2" so no need for the lift in the back and it is the best mod i have ever done.

 

super easy hardest part was getting the spring compressors back of.

you can, but you will only have about an inch and a half up travel, i bought the struts first and ran stock springs on them. not a good idea, there was alot of down travel but it bottomed out on everything. you would be better using accord springs on stock struts,
