      wow!! awesome job the truck looks very clean and well built, what size rims and tires are you running. i normally dont like the nitto mud grapplers and larger rims(see them on to many dodges and chevys) but they look incredible on your ex.

      love them. They aint even got a weight on em and no shake. ive owned 3 sets so i swear by them. they pull super hard in mud long as you keep em cleaned out. i got them mainly because i bought them new for 800 bucks.

      Ah I see we follow the same logic. I got mine for 1000 flat.


      I have come to like them but I feel they weigh a ton.

      There's no need to feel they weigh a ton lol. They do! Mine are load rrange e due to that's all they make for a 18. They have to be close to 200 for a tire and wheel combo. Im looking for a set of 35x14.50x15 tsl boggers on a 15x14 wheel to run also.

      Looks very clean. Nice job! I think that's the first SAS on this board with 18's, though maybe I missed one. ;)

      On your shackles what is the length bolt hole to bolt hole? I am still trying to figure out why yours flexes so damn much:D:D And you did use Waggy leafs right? 5 pack springs..

      why a transfer case swap?

      to get the right yoke setup for the drive shaft?

      I love the look! if mine only looks half as good I will be happy. if it turns out to be closer to what you have done I will be beside myself!

      nice truck
      how does it steer?
      why didnt you go high steer? you have a fancy knuckle with a flat top for high steer, but you decided to bend the tie rod and put it under the leafs.
      just asking - not dissing your setup

      to answer a few questions.
      I do have complete high steer now. 2 REID knuckles and sky manf arms. I no longer have the himes. I am using 1 ton chevy tres. I have a 99 2wd superduty pitman arm 8in long for full steering and better ratio. I also am in the proscess of making a removable quick disconect trac bar. i am using jks jeep ccherokee quick disconect sway bar end links. I will get pics of. its great now tho. Can go down interstate all day running 80 with a jeep on a trailer behind it. tows better than before, better mpg, better power, better ride, less steering wondering. I love it

      The t case swap yes is for the drive shaft unless someone knows how to put a flange on this one. I do believe i have a 31.5 spring perch width. Been a whyle since we did it.
