    wow, a 10 bolt front with 39" Boggers.... Brave, very brave.

    That thing looks very clean. Does he take it out on trails much?

    He's still in the build process. It is very clean and hard to step up into without putting your foot over your shoulder. It definatley makes my K5 look tiny now that the body lift is gone, even with the 38's!

    <font color="green"> Good golly... Umm, I assume that it's being built for show? That t-case looks like it's dropped way down, and that's an awful lot of lift for 39s! Not to mention the 10 bolt front with 39s... Pretty truck though.</font>

    He's building it for show but I have a feeling it may hit at least the dunes once the dual rate shocks get on there.

    The engine is on the stock mounts, only the T-case is lowered by 3". I left plenty of room for the front CV-shaft. I have a feeling there will be much more of this to see in the coming months as the build completes - its only been on the road for a week now. Definately an eye catcher!

    He has custom stacked packs front and rear with his own hangers and shackle flip. It rides a little stiff and I like it that way since its up so high. I'm eager to see the Nationals on it too!

    I want to see the nationals as well I've been thinking about a 3/4 ton about that hight.....
    I've put Natl' springs under a XJ before and was very impressed by them. They looked like dump truck springs, but rode like Caddy springs...... /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I assure you. I am an idiot.

    EDIT - But that's beside the point. Do much wheelin on a stock 10b with anything over 37's, and it'll blow quite frequently. Especially with low gears, and/or big block power. I wheel hammer down.
