      Lion's Back is pretty steep the whole way up. I'm not going to guess what the angle is that he was at, but it's enough for a pucker factor.

      i know you used waggy leaf packs for your swap, i was doing some research on swapping in a D30, any suggestions on the kind of leaf packs i should use for that type of axle?

      The axle does not change the type of leafs. So I would use the waggy leafs.

      Yep, use Waggy packs or a heavier truck to support the weight of the ST.

      I guess what I'm really asking is what would be some alternative vehicles that I could find some suitable leaf packs for this swap being that the waggys are few and far between in my neck of the woods.

      Any springs from a stock Waggy are going to have the infamous "Wag sag." I've had my own Waggy, sold it to my dad, and he got two more. I used Waggy springs for my SAS, but I got new ones from BJ's Offroad: http://www.bjsoffroad.com/. The guys that own it are FSJ enthusiasts and great to work with. I got front 4" lift springs and used them SOA. I still need to work a bit on my shackle length and angle but they're great. Nice and flexy. With my front custom crossmember and that combo I got about 8" of total lift in front.

      I can't remeber what box Chad used for his, but I ended up using a box from a 6.0 Powerstroke. I liked it because I knew when I eventually go to 1-tons, I'll have a steering box that will hold up. Plus I like the lower gear ratio.
