    Specs:

    454 TBI
    th400- 203/205
    Front, D60, detroit, 5.86
    Rear, D70, detroit, 5.86
    30gal, custom build tank
    39.5-16.5 on Hummers with stock offset




    The rear suspention worked really well. I was extreamlly happy with it. The only mods I plan to do soon is finish the rear part of the cage, remove the tool box and install a bench seat for the kids, and install 56" springs in the front so the front and rear springs will be the same.

    Thanks for the input. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    That thing is slick /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif

    Is the front tapered? I like what you did with the fenders, gets me thinking /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif The more body damage I get I can just trim it off as it comes /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif Sweet rig man, glad to see your hard work has paid off, great setup /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif
