    I was kinda wondering if anyone knew what the deal with this rear suspension is. I was digging through some old stuff, found this, and hadn't seen anything like it.

    Most people don't use it on a fullsize for a number of reasons. I gather the main one is weight. Is that keg for a propane conversion or an end of the trail party?

    Are both rear Swampers the same size? The one on the right looks larger. :confused:

    ha, most of the 1/4 ellip setups I have saw are a link type system and the half pack (the ones on the top here) hit the axle to suspend the vehicle. I bet this doesn't axle wrap a bit when it hooks:laugh:
