    Send Marv a PM. He builds em, and runs em. I'm sure you'll get a straight up answer. Been out wheelin and camping with him, and he's a decent guy.

    I just got back wheelin w/ him today. I have it installed on my truck and havent done a whole lot of wheelin on it, but the times i have done i love it, check out some pics of it on my site, he wheels the pi$$ out of that truck and it just wont break, frizzlefry also has it and he loves it too from what i have heard, the only thing marv (springer) dosnt reccommend it to tow w/ it. going to the trails we were doing 75-80 dowm the freeway and it rode like a caddy, and did about 30-40 down a dirt road and i swear i was in a baja truck. if you or anyone dosn't hav the e-mail here it is and he will tell you everything you need to know, as far as bolt on, it didn't get much easier that that, took me and 3 guys and an 18 and got done in about 2-3 hrs.

    Its a great set up .My truck is much more enjoyable to drive on and off road.With the soft springs and extra travel the truck stays flatter when going over stuff and Iv yet to lift a rear tire.The towing thing isnt an issue with me cuz I only tow small stuff.I dont have the price sheet here but the whole thing was less than a shackle flip and new springs.Its a lot less work than a shackle flip also cuz ya dont have to cut off the stock spring hangers.This is his site community.webshots.com/user/beaterwhang
