With a 4 hour trip home me and zach talked about ideas for my truck. Its almost paid off and It will not be a DD. BUt will still need driven during the year (snow covered roads)
TRuck: 04 4x4 level 2
Anything I do I would like a cage and 5 point. It kinda scares me not having that protection.
What I want to do is Dixon Bro front end, deavers, and cage the entire truck. BY that I mean bed cage, roll cage and engine cage.....+ alot alot more. With all that done my total is around 15 grand which is ALOT and prabably too much money!!!
ZAchs idea is to do a coils overs up front (correct me if I am wrong zach), chevy springs in the rear (with a leaf out) and then just beat the **** out of it bascially. Cost effective fun way. If I can get it to ride like zachs truck with the dana 44 under it I would be happy. We where getting on it pretty good a few times and never once did it bottom out to bad.
Ithere a way to get rid of the torsion bars without spending the money on a dixon bro type set up?
Also is there any problems that I should be aware of when building something like this? Like drive shaft length? CV binding? I am sure zach knows but I wont talk to him prally for a while.
I just want to know other options and ideas everyone has for a cost effective suspension for the person who likes to go fast
BTW I dont want to buy some early 90s 2wd and put suspension on it. I want to use my truck.
P.S. I am on 54k, I tried searching and am getting peed off
