    lol yeah i buggered up the threads on the shock stud in the frame...i gotta get a new one so i can install the other shock. It has 39.5 boggers on 15x10 8 lug rims, 14bff with 4.56 gears and a 44 up front with a locker and a 400/465/208 combo, 8inch springs in the back with 5 inch blocks, 8inch springs, zero rate and custom spring hangers in the front I finally got to ride in a truck with 12inch springs and i thought i needed a kidney belt! so i have always been happy with the 8 inch springs i have so i built the spring hanger in the front.... it also rotated the pinion up so it will offer a better driveline angle, Right now i figure it is about a 14inch lift. the other truck in the pic has 4inch springs and 35s

    they are welded to the bumper directly over where the bumper bracket is welded to the back of the bumper, it is pretty heavy and they are burned in really good. I have plans on building one for the front out of 10 or 12 inch C channel, it will be a little more involved, its gonna have some 45s in it and be something along the same lines as the back bumper with the D rings and i was gonna mount some lights inside of it too.
