    Nice Truck

    Don't worry about the negative feedback. Most of the people bagging on your rig are riding in JUNK themselves. It is easy for them to talk smack behind a keyboard. Keep working on that RIG and you'll get it right. You gotta start somewhere.

    Looking pretty good.

    The shackles in back are a cool thing but come at a cost. That cost is a crazy long slip joint on your drive shaft. I have seen some killer flexing SAS constantly seperating his drive shaft because of this. Just food for thought. People shouldnt be naysayers untill they see your rig on the trails

    seriously look at some other ppls cars that posted in tour forum they are mostly basically stock or shackles and tt haha well i love your truck man and who gives a crap what your shackle angle is i can gaurantee that if that thing was riding around in my town every lifted truck would be looking and you and thinking it was awesome.. i wouldnt mind doing that to mine but i guess i would reverse the shackles now that ive seen yours. take it this way... you tought us all a lesson to put shackles on the other way for a better approach angle... it takes someone to figure this stuff out so nice ride man and thanks for the help others will appreciate it later :thumbsup:

    nice truck, i can relate with taking on big projects at a young age, but dont take the "im only 18" way out.. own up to your work, your going to make mistakes when your first starting out. shit i know i made alot.... here are some pics of my truck i completed at the ripe young age of 18... comple with dana 44, ford nine, 351w, np208 tcase, and a built c6..

    Well said, too many negative a-holes around here. Read a few SAS threads and you're an expert apparently...

    I envy anyone who takes on an sas project. Your truck is looking real good. give it time to work out the bugs. Keep up the good work. But we need more action shots.
    Good Luck
