once you cage it you can just ditch all that rubber and use aluminum blocks for body mounts. there will be no shifting anyway.

you know that Chris (shonuff82) still has a body lift...

that big huge one that needs to be taken down a few inches? yea if it wasnt for the steering angles and stuff i would say just take off the BL and call it good but who knows.

what do you mean ditch all the rubber? are you talkin with or w/o the BL blocks still in?

like there is a 1" piece of stock rubber on the mount. you dont want that with a cage. then just make a 2" steel or aluminum block for the body mount. it will be rigid enough it wont move. plus the cab will be held in many more spots with the cage.

i went to "speed and truck world" and took a look at some 285/75/16R bfg A/T's. can i run those with jus the t-bar crank? they look like they wouldnt fit. and if they did then they would rub.
