    <font color=orange>A kid over at CTS goes to school with the owner of that truck. The kids dad paid for it. All the work cost like $25,000, and the kid doesn't like it. He said the only reason he was driving it was his daily driver truck was getting built.[​IMG]</font color=orange>

    Is it just me or do those shocks look way too long. the don't seem to be sitting in the mid length of the stroke at all. Also, wouldn't it be way better for those ladder bars and radius arms be mounted upsidedown ? talk about bad ground clearance, I mean,they didn't even try to make it work. What about that drag link, is that angle bad or what ?!

    are you talking about the Chevy ? I think that those aren't shocks. I think they are either a hydraulic or air cylinder......

    There's a girl in my town that's about 5' tall and drives a 2000 Ford Super Duty extended cab longbed with 8" of lift and 38's. You can't see her at all if she walks behind it. Even though it's a Ford, it's a gorgeous truck... she's not too bad either! haha

    Wow, I must be learning something from you guys about suspensions! That was my first thougt, who designed with poor clearance in mind? Look at the rear axle truss, over and under (another clearance thief), but neither one tie in to the pumpkin.

    Its sits real high though.
