    i took my friends short bed frame he painted up and was not using :rolleyes: . then to help motivate him to the running truck status i added a few things:deal: . i took his 40x17x15 ground hawgs and mounted them to some 15x10 white crawlers i scored off ebay for 240.00. then to fit them on the dana 60 front i had in my colection i ground the calipers a bit:grind: :1zhelp: . this to help clear the 3.5" backspacing of the rims.

    next i bolted on a steering box brace kit thanks to a fellow ck5er that had one i got from him:thumb: . also i added a drop pitman arm from a local friend:waytogo: . then all of this with a slightly used but good and tight box i had.

    then i added the full 4" front and rear spring lift i grabed at a local junk yard :eek1: . with the front i also took and added a short section of rear overload leaf cut off the same length as a zero rate block. also added some ord hd shackles and full greaseable bushing kit for the springs;) .

    the rear is a 3/4 ton 14ff to fit with no mods:pimp: . so to help in stoping i added a disk brake kit:smile1: . and with all of that to stop i threw in a hydro boost unit i had that matched the box.

    then for the cool efect i got some rear 88-up dulley centers as thay are the deepest and some conversion lug nuts with plastic hold on nuts for a completly diffrent look on those aftermarket rims. real easy mod to perform:surepal: :cool1: .

    well you ck5ers should have been there tonight when i droped it off to him to see the look he had on his face. then he didnt have much to say as he was just blown away:haha: :wink1: :D .
