    I'm thinking about rebiulding the whole rig to coil springs. Anyone ever done this? Or even saw this?

    I are going to do all the fabrication for a radius arm setup/ 4 link, or whatever a full on airbag setup would be the hot ticket. I am working on a 4" lift standalone airbag setup right now. If it turns out nice I might think about selling a few.

    What about this, Anyone know what advantages there are to this?

    I've been trying to determine if it's a good setup for rockcrawling and how much of an advantage it is. I got it out of OFF Road Magazine July 2001 Page 64. If anyone has it they've got an awsome rig in there!
    What's the best bet?
