    <font color="green"> 3 link coilover SFA conversion though! Looks like a HP D60 too, but it's hard to tell with the lighting. I'd take it, and I haven't even seen the rest of the truck! A High Angle CV would handle that angle easy! /forums/images/icons/smile.gif</font color>

    I have seen this truck in person, and IMHO, the pictures make it look 200% better. Sure its got SFA, Coil-overs, and cross over, but the pinion angle is so horrible its not even funny. The front axle is a stock HP D44 with and Hydro Assist Ram steering, good axle, but not for this application with that amount of lift and 44 TSL's /forums/images/icons/frown.gif The drive shafts are driveline solution's and the front DS spinles are pulled out and exposed for about 12-14inches. All the custom fab of the suspension is booger weld and looks like its holding on for dear life /forums/images/icons/shocked.gif Oh, and another thing, its just some rich daddy's boy mall cruiser, God forbid a spec of dirt gets on the tires /forums/images/icons/crazy.gif

    We have a 95 extende cab Chevy Longbed up at the shop, Rocktek Engineering that has 19" of lift, a 60 front/rear. 5:13's, a very beefed up 502. It is big, goofy, but just a blast to cruise.
