guys i am sorry to have kept you all waiting the last week has been insane with my truck from stuff not fitting right to not haveing the right parts. ok well istill have a mild to do list to finish it but it now can drive down the street ( no shocks is a verry scarry thing).

to do list:
steering stabalizer
shocks
shock hoops need to be welded on
frame needs strenthing
body needs some triming for the tires
brakes need to be bled
aling the front end
get a drive shaft made

other than that list i would say its about 90% done mabe a little more. so here is the low down i what i have used. the front springs are from a 95 chevy tahoe. the front shackles are for a old cj-5 rear and the shackle perches are for a jeep aswell. i have 33x10.50r15 buckshot muders on black steel wheels. umm thats about it if you have more questions tell me i will answer them. oh ya we took it out today to test the flex and my buddy just about shit him self when he saw it flex the one of the things i wanted to with this sas was to show him how big of a pile his toyota was. pics are on my myspace page under pics here is the link:
