more pics of truck. pic 3 has my kid in it. the one who painted it!!
That looks sweet! /forums/images/icons/grin.gif I like
Looks great Henry! /forums/images/icons/cool.gif Looks like each paint job gets better with experience. I think next time you are in town I'll bring some ratchet straps and you can haul my K5 back and give it a transformation from plain jane white to hot rod in the mud!
BTW I would want it back and not added to your collection or scrapped /forums/images/icons/grin.gif
Looks awsome! /forums/images/icons/grin.gif

Looks slick! I like it! /forums/images/icons/grin.gif
Either you have bigger than 6 or I have less than. I cant decide which it is. I just dont look like I have that kind of clearance on mine (going off the pic of the profile of it.) and I have it set up the same way w/ 6 and 3. What does it measure from the bumpstop mount to the Ubolt plate? I am just curious. Rene measured his 4 in. there and I had 2 more than him.
looks great you did a good job /forums/images/icons/grin.gif
I looked again and I see you have a longer shackle on the front too. That may be whats messing me up. I still have stock shackles till I rip it all apart again. (Which will be soon.)
as it sits in pic, there is still 6" rear, 5" front and 3"body. on the 44's. I am thinking of going up 8" or 10" suspension. front tires are tight. and would hit when flexed.
Oh great that makes me feel soooo much better knowing its actually an inch lower than mine in front! LOL! Here I am doubting my 6in., and you tell me you have a 5in. in the front! /forums/images/icons/shocked.gif Just messin around. How long are the front shackles?
how did ya do the flames?? looks great!! /forums/images/icons/cool.gif
I taped it off with 2 rolls of pinstripping tape, masking tape and paper. took 3 hours. then let the kid loose with 2 krylon spray cans of red, 1 orange and 4 yellow! this is NOT the first truck she painted. this is the 3rd flamed truck. She has the hang up on the flames. I had a beater chevy that I painted when she was a kid( 6 anyways) it was all she talked about! daddy's fire truck!!
this was the other truck she painted for me.
front shackles are 2" longer than stock.
Thats about what I thoght they looked like. How does it handle that way? You have taken away quite a bit of caster angle. I ask because I was thinking of fabbing up some that were 2in. longer too.
surprisingly it handle quite well!! with no front sway bar, 40's single steering stabilizer, single front shocks. I could drive it all the time!! steering was always on track!! ran the roads better than my 87 with 2" lift and 33's did!!
Thats what I was hoping for. I was thinking that adding some caster angle would help. Mine has a tendency to drift some. I dont have bumpsteer, but it does wander around a bit and everything is tight. It has a shim built into the spring pack that takes away some caster, so its not quite as willing to just ride along, it tries to run the ruts in the road.
When is she coming down to do my 75? /forums/images/icons/grin.gif
My 75 will be a little different twist though.
looks real good.i need one of those.then maybe the wife would ride in it ands not call it ugly.maybe ugly is a good thing /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif
