    Finally done(except for small stuff that keeps appearing). Swapped in a van width 14ff and 4.56 gears, DRW dana 60 and 4.56 gears, added crossover steering, then hummer beadlocks(need to balance these bad). The steering still needs a little tweeking as well as alignment. I need to bleed the brakes one more time. I also need to instal the steering box brace from ORD. What a difference all this has made it doesnt act the same at all. I think the weight of the hummer beadlocks and 38.5s is alot of what im feeling but i guess we will see. Thanx to everyone for all the help. Special thanx to westtexask5 for the wrench time.

    Like i said i have a few things left but i did get to drive it home. Im thinking i need a different pittman arm the one on there now works but i think the clocking is wrong on it. Im not quite comfortable with how long the draglink is right now. Where do your pitman arms point when steering is pointed staight? I only have a little over an inch of the TREs threaded into the draglink so im thinking that another(correct) pitman arm will correct this. What do you think?

    Looks great! I love the trim job on the rear! :hack: :saweet:

    Is that paint or liner on the lower section?

    I've been thinking of doin that from the top of the wheel well down with something like Rhino Liner.

    Great pics!! I'm doing the dually/Hummer rim thing myself so I always like to see examples of the final set up.

    Are you staying with 38's or going with something different? Since you have drive flanges, what diff in the front - Detroit?

    I also need to know about these drive flanges. I bought a set that look just like those (except there chrome)a while back on ebay and have never used them because I didn't know how streetable they would be. Are they stock chevy 30 spline flanges?

    The green on the bottom is liner thats been paited over. the tires yes they are bald but iv got four new ones at the shop just didnt want to drive them on the street. the front is open fight now and the drive flanges were on the axle when i bought the truck the axle came from. im not sure yet on their streetability still doing research(everyone has a different opinion). Like i said its still needs a little smoothing out on a few things but its almost there. thanx for the input keep it coming.

    My pitman points straight back when my tires are straight. Drag link length is 38.5" and my DLE's are buried...this would be with 4" of lift that is probably a little sagged.


    BTW, no K5 is ever "Done" :crazy:
