    bedliner questions

    i noticed in Petersen's offroad magazine that rhino lining makes a spray or whatever it is to "reshine" your truck bed. The link that was given was that of the rhino linings website. I may have to touch mine up too. hope this helps.

    Is this all i need to do a sas?

    It's Swee294349 :-) You may get lucky and spend around a grand. I myself spent about $2000 so far and all i need to do now is lengthen my driveshaft and have it aligned.

    FullFootNotch's SAS on 38s

    truck looks good man. I myself would go the route of the M.O.R.E Hi Steer Setup. I purchased it and am loving it. You should purchase the one that trckmagick has. My truck sits similar to yours. I'm need to bump up to probably a 3-4" waggy spring.

    hiridin's dana 30 sas

    That's a nice and clean job! Is your truck pretty much level with the leaf springs, add a leaf and front coils? Mine sits a little nose down, but i'm thinkin i need the 4" waggy springs.

    hiridin's dana 30 sas

    mine seemed to have gone smoothly. The only thing i did was put the brackets on backwards. Dummy i know. as of right now i'm installing the gears in class and getting ready to complete the 4wd portion of the axle. it will soon be 100%.
