    F250 24\" of lift on 49.5\" Irok\'s

    buddy of mine called me last week and told me that this truck was at his house. so i loaded up my boys and went to check it out. i think it's a pretty sweet truck, even if it is a F#rd. here's the link F250

    He's actually planning on going up about 3-4 more inches to clear the Irok's better. he normally runs on 44" boggers with this setup. he got the Irok's free as a sponsorship from Super Swamper, and the wheels he got half off direct from the manufacturer (I can't remember who made them right now)

    is it me or are the limiting straps setup in such a way that the suspension can compress a bit but not articulate at all? /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    the owner told me that he has done some lite wheeling with it. but for the most part it's a poser rig. i wouldn't mind just having the money that's tied up in it. between the stuff that he's purchased, and he's had given to him he said there's about $20K in it. he drove it up here from California for the SEMA show last month.

    I bet it has lots of things. Like mean bumpsteer from that track bar and drag link angles working against each other.

    Pretty bad when you measure your lift in feet rather than inches, but still a sweet rig.

    I bet it's a dog even with 5.13s. /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    Thats a badass looking rig, thats one of the few I have seen with the right fabrication. Is it just me or is the front PS coil cock-eyed, or does it even matter?

    that's just the angle i took the picture from. the suspension is soft enought that you could walk up to the front bumper and pull it down by hand. oh yeah, not that it matters, but i was backwards on the rims and tires. he got the rims free, and payed half for tires.

    the engine is a diesel with all of the Banks Power pack system. i forget what it was rated at, but he said it does pretty good down the highway. oh yeah, all of the Banks stuff was given to him too.

    They do, they give them Pro Rockcrawlers /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif But you already knew that. Besides, its hard to show the name of the product when its covered in mud /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    not everyone likes looking at poser rigs. I tend to point at them and laugh.. just like I do ricers. 20" rims, no front driveshafts, weeny axles, and chromed everything is not the ingrediants for a rig I want to look at. I'd rather check out a beat to chit TTC-style trail rig anyday. /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif
