Mu buyer fell through. Its not posted for sale anymore, im just gonna keep building it, if i get a good offer ill sell it. I want to build a LT 4x4 pretty badly but cv axles seem to be a huge problem to find. My promotion and raise are set for the new fiscal year which begins apr 1st so ill know more then. Until then im gonna keep on building it.

After the front shocks and limit straps will be an SOA in the rear, im gonna try to find a way to mount some 2.0 or even 2.5 shocks outside of the frame for extra stability and anti roll. Ive seen it done so its just a matter of getting it done lol..

Very nice truck! What is the deal with the BTF Fab upper arms? are these custom upper arms for 4x4? Sorry, I haven't been around here very closely for about 3 years.... Keep up the good work!

They are custom upper arms for both 2wd and 4wd. They are built with a high angle ball joint to allow a little more travel and not max out the ball joint.
