actually not as bad as i thought! it struggles a bit to take off from a dead stop but after that it just cruises along the motor runs pretty dang strong! getting fornt and rear detroits and 5.13s next week. doing the 5.13s for some 37 or maybe 38's in a month or two

I also have 3.73's in the stock axles with 35's..the auto helps..(converter reduction)..but it still sux on takeoff..

Looks really good! I got the Wild Horse coils on mine, hope it has the same amount of flex as the CAGE. I have a similar setup as yours...

I'm running the CAGE tube radius arms and heim joints at the frame...I'm also interested in where and how you mounted the arm brackets.

Also, you have any close up pics of the front end?
