    You can talk to man himself. He's in Mesa, I would even think he could do a promotion for you [​IMG]. awesome guy. my setup was a around $500+ but it was a one of a kind and am still working out the kinks. but the regular setup is bullit proof, and i mean that. he wheels the pi$$ outta that truck and it keeps up...Frizzlefry has the regular setup, he could give you a more precise $ for you.

    Think about it this way---
    You want flex right....~$500 for the Springer Suspension. you get soft springs, and all the hardware to bolt up.

    or do the ORD and still want more flex (happened to me) so you spend $$ on custom springs
    Please forgive me if imsounding like a salesman, but am really impressed w/ this setup..

    Marv's a good guy. Very unique set up to say the least.

    I'm not sure how it performs on-road, but offroad, I've seen Marv take that old blazer places I'da thought were impossible to go. I wonder if his kit will fit my K20 suburban....

    If you can find long enough springs it will work. I'm sure if Marv is in town for the holiday's he will see the post and comment on it.

    Krazie--I went wheeling w/ him over Thanksgiving, and we had to take about a 30 min drive outta Phx and we were doing like 75-80 and it rode like a caddy. before we got to the trailhead we had to take a dirt road for a bout 10 min and the thing felt like a baja truck. the only thing he dosn't reccommend is to tow w/it. But it is Definately a Daily Driver setup as wellas a trail rig.

    Wow, those pictures are old. The Blazer and Marv look quite a bit different now.

    It will fit on any truck/Blazer/Sub with the short (52") springs. If you have the long (56") springs then you have a problem. The Ford springs that Marv uses are 57" which works well with the swing arm mounted on a hanger set for 52" springs. For the hanger set at 56", you would need a spring 61" long. Or, you will need to move the hanger to the 52" location.

    What if I just use the truck once and awhile to pull stupid people out of snow drifts? What kind of adverse effects can I expect?

    Pulling people out is not the same as towing. Towing is moving down the highway at speed with a trailer or something hooked behind you. Pulling out is no problem, towing is a problem.

    Yeah, you don't want to have soft, mushy springs when you're trying to get a 5,000 lb camper to stay behind you on winding roads... [​IMG]
