    Awesome, that thing is pretty big! Those tires look bigger than 35s too. ;) So you used a dana 44 front end?

    The axle is a Dana 44 out of a jeep J10(fullsize) swapped out a few things here and there to convert it to 5 on 5.5, rear 8.8 with 2.5 inch adapter/spacers......the jeep the axle came from had those shackles and they were in the front so i let it be.......i did uses 4 inch chevy springs up front though that way the possibilities as far as lift goes are pretty endless........its 11 inches over a stock x ,8 inches lift 3 inches because of the tire difference.....Limited slips front and rear, and the 4.88s treat me right
    Coming soon though 4 more inches.....im taking out the blocks and throwing 6 inch ranger springs in the rear and 6 inch chevy up front...and a two inch body lift<<<<ONLY because i may or may not of picked up a 302 block bored 10 over hehe.......more room under the hood.........also perrys fenders and a cowl hood.....Bigger lift of course equals bigger meats....Mickey Thompson classic locks and 37x14 Iroks and questions ask ahead

    Where are you getting the manual 1354 from? A junkyard?

    A better repair than fixing the IFS front end :) I would definately change the shackle angle. It looks goofy and would get smashed in with any kind of serious wheeling.

    does that mean your not able to build it right then? im 18 and doing a SAS on my ranger in my front yard that doesnt mean its going to turn out like crap. i guess i just dont get what you being 18 has to do with anything.

    Wouldn't the front tire hit the corner of the fender if swung back? I'm sure something is keeping them straight like that. Otherwise it's just rediculous. :)
