Been a while for an update.

I ditched the 3.5" EB coils and went with a set of 5.5" eb coils. I knocked down the lower spacer an inch.

I'm on the 3rd set of lift brackets. Bad habbit of selling them.

Got the round lights set up better.

Front shock hoops tacked together.

I should have more done this weekend. May have it moving around under it's own power, if the rear driveshaft fits.

Here is a Pic I snapped yesterday.

More to come over the weekend.

This needs an update.

Here are the latest batch of pictures. It's ready to go for a safety inspection. If all goes well it should be on the road this weekend.

The front TTB has more in it. I need to get my mitts on a set of longer coils. I'm looking into a set of 6" over JBG coils. If the free length is right I'll consider them. I may have to lift the rear an inch or so which is no big deal.

I'm going to have to update this with a fiew new pictures.

I got BIV on the road but 3 days later the slave Cylinder let go on the clutch, so it sits in the garage in pieces again.

Hope to get out tonight and get the new slave installed and get it rolling again. I need a break from working on this thing, I just want to drive it.

I'm also going to put the 33's on the stock steelies.

This way I can get the Chrome rims cleaned up and have the rock rings welded on and get them blasted and Powder coated.

Should have some new pictures up later this week.

Dang this post needs an update

Image

Image

Front tires are not off the ground yet. The whole truck was sliding to one side so I stopped.

Image

Image

Who said you need Bling Heims at the radius arms? The bushings barely move.

Image

Linkage works good. You don't need cut beams for travel.

Image

Lots more to come

What kind of steering is that?? I have never seen that before (not that I am a steering expert or anything.).

That's the Superlift Superunner linkage. The only thing I've changed is I've added a TRE at the pitman arm that is replaceable, not welded like it comes from Superlift.

Here is an update.

I stretched the wheel base 1.5" with a Zero rate add a leaf.

Painted the roof white

Installed the lift glass into the rear hatch

Image

Trimmed the rear fenders to clearance for the 1.5" stretch.

Removed a cracked leaf out of the drivers side rear pack. Removed same leaf out of the pass side also. Lowered the rear 1-1.5"

Installed another 1/4" spacer under the front coils to fix a camber issue.

New wheels and tires installed.
