    Micah,

    I love to see y'all's (yep.... I'm originally from Tx too /forums/images/graemlins/ignore.gif) photos... and as pointed out - you guys are getting some magnanamous (is that a word.../forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif) flex out of those trucks!/forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    But.... Please.... Please focus your efforts on getting some rollcages in these trucks!.... 'specially carryin' the little ones around.

    Are those 52's in the front? What shocks are you running? Are you running a center drop brake line or what?

    I took most of the pics from the 157 album. We recently got done building our truck and this was basicly the 2nd / 3rd trip with this set up. The other times we were too lazy to get any pics. I made it my personal mission to get pics this time. The only thing that sucks is I only got a couple pics of my crap. Oh well, that's how it goes!

    Secondly, I also flexed in this creek bed...

    [​IMG]

    The Devils Den in San Antonio rocks!

    as for our suspension set ups...

    56" rears long side front = 4" axle relocation to the back
    Micah with rear home brew shackle flip about 4" lift with stock shackle
    77mudbuddy with echobit shackle flip and stock shackle

    52" up front = pushes front axle about 2" forward.
    Micah has a relocated / extended shackle

    I just have a 2" extended front shackle and a e-zero rate up front = 1.5" more forward

    Micah = 14" travel shocks on F-250 towers up front
    Micah = 14" travel mounted inwards in the rear.

    77mudbuddy = 16" travel on F250 towers up front .
    77mudbuddy = 16" travel mounted inward in the rear.

    We are really digging our setups. It has been about a year since mine has really wheeled. To my frustration I was starting to forget how to wheel. I can tell you after this trip I can't wait to go beat the crap out of my truck some more!

    another good shot!

    You are very right, we need to get cages. The sad thing is we both have them sitting in the garage. We just need to weld them in. Probably will be in before the next trip.

    I have rancho RSX 9000's at 36" full length. (from my memory)

    Micah has Procomp ES 9000's 14" travel... I forget their specs. Basicly they are for the more cost consious person!

    Honestly I dont use all of my 16" shocks and for that matter I think Micah isn't useing all 14" either. Probably darn close to it though.

    Are you running some sort of a center drop brake line, or just really long extended lines?
