    Well, we managed to kill a set of 63\'s

    My dad managed to kill a set of 63's this past weekend at the hammers. His truck is running 5.13's, doubler, t350 and a built 400SB with TBI on 40" Iroks. I have to say that it took a while to finally kill them because his driving style is WFO when in trouble and he finally bent the main leafs. We are going to try and go with a custom 65" long or so spring running triple wrapped main eyes to keep the axle wrap down. Hopefully that will help.

    Holy smokes /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif Are you going to get an anti wrap bar for it so it doesn't bend anymore springs?

    Lets see since my dad got it he regeard to 5.13's, installed a triple stick doubler, redid the dash with autometer gauges, installed new seats, ARB front, Detroit in the rear, 35 spline outers, 1410 HAD CV shafts F&R that are equal length so he only has to care one spare. Umm, Warn 16,500TI winch, TBI, new fuel cell, Iroks, Trailready beadlocks and some other crap i cant remember off the top of my head, well anyways here is the best picture i have of it.
