    Imagine the ride. It looks like it has multi-layered, flat tapered ubolts holding the axles to the frame /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif.

    Maybe the 24" springs were too stiff compared to the 22" springs. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Does it have a front driveshaft? Looks like it in the shadow but can't see one otherwise.

    Saggy butt looks weak IMHO...looks like the truck can't handle itself, let alone some extra weight. 1/2 ton Suburbans look especially weak with their narrow 10 bolt rears and sagging rear ends!! HAAA!!!! LOL!!!!!

    no the case is dropped a lot and the custom crossmembers block the front output, and its a drivers side case with a pass side diff D44 /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif

    A guy I knew a while back named Scott built a huge teal extra-cab like that and then put it under his sub. Is it running a ford 60 up front? Hell when they are that big 3/4 ton sstuff looks small. Up on this side of town there is a new F350 running 2 1/2 ton Rockwells with the 46 I know whwhat you mean about the prerunners I LOVE THEM.: Turf Tamers. /forums/images/graemlins/usaflag.gif /forums/images/graemlins/burb.gif
