    Well I think it does have x-over the bar running / looks to be a draglink with great angles on the DLE's:haha: I love the double track bar setup:D :haha:

    I don't think it's got blocks, looks like 0rates to me......... steering and suspension is still wack IMO.

    I think he needs to learn to speak english. Holy cow,
    custom made, sweet! Considering how stupid 17 inches is to begin with, that would make me feel real safe coming from him. And bonus, it starts every time! That makes it completely trouble free! When asked hows the body, does it have bondo,the reply "it is complete for what we use it for." What the he** does that mean? I think the question should have been "how many beer cans can fall through the rocker panels and bed," then he may have actually answered the question.

    I call b.s. on the 17" lift as that looks lower than that. If it had 17" lift, the bottoms of the doors would be closer to the tops of the tires.

    But if you look at the big picture of the front, You can see the steering arm. Look even closer and you can see the drag links. Unless he decided to just leave the steering arm and the drag link attached to it. I definately LOVE the super extended u bolts on the driver side...hehe

    he left the raised steering arm on yes, but what your seeing as a draglink is actually a brakeline. look closer and btw a track bnar on something like this is a really good idea. seriously, being that tall, it needs it.

    Ditto, I've seen trucks with 17-18" lifts up close and that truck does not look that tall. I'd say it's about 14-15" of actuall lift.

    I don't know why everyone is trashing the truck, I mean I can understand trashing the owner, he sounds like a dumba** but the truck has a lot going for it......

    No 15 tone flashy paint job

    A real rear end, not a 10b with 3.08's

    And no 17 chrome shocks going everywhere, just an overdone steering stabilizer.

    Side view , do the front springs look way long or is there some type of traction device?

    Good thing its got a sway bar. After all, the front springs don't have enough rate to control any possible body roll.
