      fantastic truck - - great inspiration!

      were you able to run 33 (or 35 in your case) with just the 3" body lift?

      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.
