    Things like that are what give lifted trucks a bad name. I hope he sells them soon before he kills someone driving that thing around.

    Notice that the only thing holding the shackle lowering thingy to the spring mount is a couple of cheesey little tack welds?
    Hit a bump on the highway just right(or wrong) and you might as well go ahead and bend over and start kissin it!

    Think he may have a little axel wrap upon acceleration?

    All looks pretty standard for hardcore mud trucks. You see it quite a bit... name of the game in the pits is run the biggest booger you can... whether by these means or a nice 12" body lift [​IMG] LOL. Overall if they are done right they are ok for the pits... most of them are so big you can't drive them on the street, nor would you want to, anyways.

    <font color=purple> I have lokked at it again and agree with Mikey ...... it has to be a mud only truck ........ I still don't think it's safe, but they do that to the mud trucks sometimes just to run bigger tires ............. Even White Knight has a 10" bodt lift ........ I'm not lumping White Knight in with this guy, just saying it was done to fit bigger tires too . I'm sorry if you're offended WK by your mention here ........ It's just a comparison ........ PM me if you're upset ...... we'll talk. :p

    <font color=purple> I just don't want somebody that has built a mechanically sound vehicle ( White Knight ) to get lumped into this crappy job that Billy Bob did !! It's all good !

    <font color=blue>Haha thats my little brother standing in front of that primer Chevy! My dad took that picture at Bloomsburg this summer. The guy lowered the springs at least 18" [​IMG] from the frame and the steering was equally frightening! The worst part was it had recent PA inspection on it and it passed by me going the other way in front of the university on friday's cruise night.
