My nice broken rear spring
quick, someone chop some dirt and rocks into the first 38 pictures!!
nice, did the spring break from hoppage or flexing? nice lookin rig!! your cameraman needs a safer place to stand lol
Cool pictures...bummer about the spring.
i absoulutly love your truck man, great work. and pics!
So would that be a snapped top leaf in the pack, and the truck is held up by the rest of the leaves pushing on the back end of that main one?
that is too sick...i mean the guy driving...lmao...just joshing, looks really cool climbing that hill
That loading dock never stood a chance.
I dig your cage man, those are some great refferance pics for very close to what I would like to build, I will be copying them for sure. great pics too. bummer bout the spring though.
The spring brokefrom having no antiwrap bar "bent the sh!t out of my old one" and doing full trottle clutch drops trying to climb that wall. Need to now wash the truck replace the rear springs, build a new antiwrap bar and a heavyduty transmisson crossmember.And yes the camera man needs to learn to not get his shadow in the way.
Yep Still had to drive it home 20 miles too. lol
Thanks. heres a link to the cage build pics if your want more pics

Is that rust I see on the broken spring end? It looks like the spring has been cracked for quite some time and finally gave up.
No rust just a fresh break.
pretty sweet flex man. what springs you going to run now? stock 56's again?
Plan on running the stock 56"s again, but with the first 2 leaves clamped together and a good anti wrap bar. But also have been thinking of getting my friend to link the rear and run coil springs until I can afford coil overs.
Going 4 link huh...nice
Thinking about it. Really don't have the funds right now.
thanks, nice pics there too. I just need some tube now.
