    I can\'t figure this out...

    Its not too far from me, I'm tempted to go look and try to figure it out. It still has leaf springs, but its airbagged? And its got a 2 link suspension... wtf is that? I'm guessing traction bars? 2.73 gears with limited slips front and back on 1/2tons... and 35s, my 31s were horrible with 2.73s, big block or no big block. Oh and can someone tell me what a 304 tcase is?

    it looks like its got a 205 case, judging from where the shifter is located in the cab.

    it must be a cobble job on the airbag setup, since he didnt include any upclose pics. it looks like there are only a couple of leafs that are used to align the axle, and the bags carry the weight. that is how he is calling it a 5-9" suspension lift.

    If you buy that, please burn it! LOL.

    From the pics this is what I get:

    What he is calling a 2 link suspenion for the off-road enthusiest(good that is funny!) is the shitty-ass traction bar set-up he has in the rear. And his "airbag set-up" must be those stupid add-on airbags that are just intended to be helpers in the rear. /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif

    This thing is: :gay: /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif
