    Bla didn't that go out with the 80's?
    Get rid of those silly springs and it would be a pretty decent rig.

    Because they're gay? /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Seriously, if I had a truck that tall, I would have put on something like the 46" Firestones or even 48" Goodyears! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Ignoring the springs, it's a really nice truck...hell spring swaps are easy. Remove about 10 or 12" of lift and wheel it! It does have all the good parts...

    Is it just me or does the exhaust go inside the fender over the rear wheelwell? I can't say I've ever seen that before.

    there was already a post on this truck here so wes someone beat you to it.i think bryguy0b or something like that.that truck needs a serious spring chop.if you are going to make it that big at least put some kind of frame support or something in there to stop it from swaying and breaking the spring eyes off.i dont think it would last driving it more than 5 mph and definitely not wheeling until you chop the lift by at least a foot.i know the monster trucks are close to that high but they have about 20 different ties into the frame to support the lift and keep it from breaking.and even that is not enuf sometimes on a big jump or in the freestyle comp.other than that lift witch as it was said would be the first thing to go,the truck is nice.
