    I would defintely upgrade the shock setup before you hit a good trail and crack the frame from a shock bottoming out while dropping off of a good sized rock.

    Those wheels look sweet, I hope the hold air better then the last set from usa 6x6. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif. It is time to move the shocks inboard in the rear and get the ford shock towers in the front. /forums/images/graemlins/hack.gif

    No offense meant at all, but if you get a bunch of off road guys together and clean the place up, nothing bad can happen, and you can post up a big sign saying you own it (not literally) and kick ass to those who cant comply

    I'd hate to get a swamper shredded by trash, so the last time I went wheeling in that sort of area I picked up a couple hunks ofd scrap

    I would get crossover steering before you even consider trying to get any additional suspension travel. The more flex you have, the more difficult it will become to steer as your suspension moves with front to back steering.

    Having never run front to back steering on a dana 60 so I don't know exactly how bad it is, but I'm certainly glad that I didn't try it.

    Yes I have the Sky kit, it was $320 to the door and all I needed that was not included was a 2wd steering box.
