    just so i'm clear on this when you say flip your leafs thats putting the leafs over the axle right? because i was totally thinking that was my option for lifting the rear but if it moves back 5" is that going to be a problem for clearance in the rear at all with the fenders? i dont wanna have to hack up my truck :(

    haha thank you so much i lost sleep over seeing this beast as a final product, definitely one of the most badass rigs i've seen in a while!!!

    No, it means to turn them 180*, so the front bushings become the rear bushings. The center pin that holds the packs together is not centered in the packs. One side is longer than the other by 5+".

    looks awesome man!! mind getting a better shot of your trimmed your front fenders? yours look much better then the BS i came up with. And whats your wheel base, it has to be around 110" or so, mine is 105 with a 3" front stretch.

    I would love to see the front trimming a little closer. Looks very well done and a solution to one of my concerns.

    Good thread and awesome truck.

    well, going over a bunch of little things right now...life has sort of got in the way of play time. I have a hydro assist system half put in, and a new trans wiring harness sitting in a box next to it...I will get to it I swear..
