    When I looked at the first picture I didn't see the fork lift right off the bat and I was kinda freaked out by the fact that your tire was levitating. I need more caffine! That is some awesome flex! What are the specs on your supsension and wheels and tires? Good lookin truck!!!

    Specs are in the sig. at the bottom of the post.

    Alittle more detailed specs:
    4" Rough County Front Srings w/ 4 Degree tapered zero rate, axle moved 1/5' forward.
    Stock rear springs with Zero Rate and Echobit Shackle flip
    39.5x18-16.5 Boggers on 16.5x 12 steel wheels "not sure of the back spacing.

    It doesn't look like you have the sliding V on there. Is it there and I can't see it?

    I agree on the first pic, it looks like it's freaking levitating!

    Wow!

    What kind of shocks/mounts do you have?

    My setup is the same except I've got 6" Superlifts up front with a regular straight zero rate.

    Awesome! I haven't got my truck out to flex it real hard with the new suspension, but I hope mine flexes like yours.

    Get yourself a radiator for either a cummins or a duramax. Cummins would probably be cheaper though. And there is a awesome condition blazer tub and body for sale near me if you want me to check it out. What part of Katy are you in, I am in Friendswood off of 45 south. Well good luck and let me know because I know some really good salvage yards in Houston. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif
