    Has anyone tried the 52 inch front spring install?
    How well does it drive on the highway?
    What is it like on the trail.
    This looks like a great mod and I am at the right point (bare frame) to be moving mounts around.

    I just need some opinions to convince myself.
    Thanks

    I'm sorry I guess that I did not express my question properly.
    I have read the article and I have read the posts from others that would like to do the mod if they could.
    I am looking for people that have these springs on their truck or have at lest tried the modification.
    The question was to find out what this modification drives like both on and off the road.

    Holy crap. Over 10000 posts. When do you get time to wheel?

    like I said, there are lots of posts with peoples comments on how it rides on the road and off. Hopefully someone will grace this with a comment.

    As for my posts, I rarely wheel. Now I don't even have a rig. I'm in school and a web wheeler :D Hopefully my posts will stop climbing next year after I'm done school.
