    Ok fellas, I got out before it started the terrential down pour.

    here are some pics.

    She definately has much more down travel in both front and rear, the up travel in the front makes me pretty happy as, when the springs are flat the shackle is in a decent position and the drive shaft still has about an inch of movement before it bottoms out.

    Shackle position in front w/ flat springs.

    clearance between ram/draglink and assorted things that usually get in the way. the shocks that are on there are 86'd tomarrow. the new ones will be a tad bit longer so i will have to address that.

    front tire up. A little trimming is needed in the back.

    the rear up. I will leave the trimming in the front the way it is since i will be bump stopping it.

    Yeah, my truck looked like that factory ... except it had doors, and a full-width nose, and smaller tires, and :haha:

    I like the rig. Simple, elegant, well built. I'm jealous of your cage.

    Thats my pride and joy. It's not a %100 to my liking but there is always room for improvement.

    It has more down travel in both front and rear. im gonna keep the up travel in the front limited to what you see because of ram and driveshaft clearance. The rear can come up some more, I just have to do some more :hack::grind: to the rear fenders.
