    Thank God it isn't like this anymore. Front suspension is pretty much complete. Pics will be coming soon.

    A Bronco used to go past my work all the time with 38s in the back and 35s in the front. Nice, what leaf springs in the back? You moved the springs inward under the frame? I've been thinking about that with my planned 3/4 eliptical setup.

    yeah, I figured I could get a little more flex with them underneath the frame and easier to do the drop away shackle. The rear springs are 8" superlifts. I forgot to mention the rear axle has been slid back about 2".

    I noticed the slide back thats why I figured they were like Ford 57s or something. I am thinking sliding under the frame will be a really good idea for me. Be easier to make my suspension setup, and I will be able to move the front spring mount forward so whatever springs I use(likely 57s) I can keep the center pin in the stock location. Thanks for this idea man, I NEVER even explored it before this!

    Like the looks of it. Need to see the beadlocks in person. Like the looks of them more everytime I see them. Looks like you are going to have to trim the rear opening, just a little.
