    Two questions:
    #1, how is your rear going to flex with that long of a shock?
    #2, How the heck will you handle the axle wrap with those blocks?

    #1-the rear flexes great, the shocks do not inhibit the travel at all. That's why I measured before I bought these. It's all about where you place the mounts.

    #2-I'm going to wheel it and see how ad it gets, but I am planning a track bar in the near future. I also have a line on some 13 leaf springs for an EB, so that will help.

    truck looks great, I love my full widths, just prepare to be dirty forever!!

    2 things
    1 welds look great but watch that front trac bar, the welds may hold, but the frame may not, you may have it reinforced more than the pictures show, but just a heads up, it has happened to alot of us, so be careful!

    2 where did you get your wristed arm???????

    I made the wristed arm, it was really easy. I cut the RA where I wanted it to pivot, then I just took 2, 3/8'' plates and cut them to size and welded them on. I also had a bushing made for the 'wrist' so it can pivot nicely. It seems to work great. I just used a 5/8'' hitch pin to secure the other side of the wrist.

    What did you have to do to modify the rear drive shaft to fit the 9", because i going to be putting a 9" in my B4000 and i'm just curious to what you had done.

    Bassically, it is a whole new rear driveshaft. I got a new CV at the T case end (the stock one was in bad shape) and new u joint at the axle end. I had him put in a new, longer travel, slip joint too. It cost about 400 dollars, but I decided to do it right the first time, in the hope that I will not have problems later.
    My d/s guy has a Navaho and said that if you don't put a CV in the rear you will get a major vibration with this amount of lift.

    Roughly about 80 inches from outside to outside. I got the jonny joints locally from a fab shop that makes them for "Toys by Troy" The place is called DT Fab, they have a website. I think I scored mine for about $40.00 each-cash.

    You should. I am going with much less lift with the same axles and will be running 38" Swampers.

    I could easily fit 37's without cutting. If I did some hacking I'm sure I could fit anything up to 40s

    Did you change the flange on the transfercase or did you use a 1310 to 1330 adapter to mate the 9"'s driveline to the explorer. what did you have to do to the front driveshaft?
