Photoshopping again.... I'm gonna get myself in trouble lol. I love the cleaner look here without the bull bar and sport tubes. Also put on DC-2's(definite possibility of getting them when tire time comes) and 09-present badges and 4x4 decals.....

upper control arm:
outside to outside: 14"
inside to inside: 8.5"
bushing in control arm width: 2.5"

so now all we gotta do is measure a 97-03 and see it it will match.
Thanks bud keep us posted, if this is possble, when i get my lift id love to ditch the torsion bars, fab up a upper mount and throw on some dirt logic or king coilovers.

Thanks man, but I'm missing my tow hooks(just the safety thing) and I have a big lighting upgrade planned so the bull bar is for sure going, along with the sport tubes lol but I'm undecided on the wheels since nobody really has the badlands, but I kind of want some black, not much, but a little.

Its a nice looking truck, but I understand wanting to change it up. What size wheels do you have on there currently?

If you do end up getting rid of the wheels let me know, I may be interested. You gotta eliminate the tow hooks to install the bullbar?

Man your photoshopping looks really good. I would say go for it, I recently went through the same kind if change with my grille guard and now love the cleaner look. Those new wheels are also my favorite ones.

That was the main thing I hated about my Bullbar. Since I got rid of it I couldn't tell you all the times I've used my tow hooks, before I had to crawl under and hook a chain on my frame.
