Ok.. thanks to the help of this board- special thanks to the articles section and Rodeoholic, I have completed my first modifications of my rodeo...

for $13, a pair of shackles from advance auto parts.

cranked front tortion bars. (had to buy a 1-1/16th socket)-$6, but basically free since the socket is not a part of the car, HAHA..

265/75-16s, oversized all terraine tire-

total lift from tires and suspension- bout 3 inches.

total satisfaction. Love my rodeo even more now.

see picts at link in signature.

bought the grade 8 hardware... will be getting to it later on today after i sleep....

I bought 9/16s hardware. I'll be trying to drill out the damn shackles with a half inch bit, swirling a bit, then grinding out the rest.

that damn grade 8 hardware is hard to find, jeez... home depot doesn't have it... most auto parts stores DON'T EVEN CARY NUTS AND BOLTS..?!?!?!

finally found what i needed at ACE...

can't believe it... you can go into an autozone/checker/pepboys/napa and buy about anything you could need to fix your car, ACCEPT FOR THE NUTS AND BOLTS THAT HOLD THE ^%$#ING THING TOEGTHER.

anyhow, i'll update on how the proceeder goes... hopefully I'll be able to update my pictures too, new hubs and the new hardware in back.

Yep, I've been ransacking the metric bolt section at my local hardware store ever since I got my "new" Trooper...
