Oh man. Too funny. "Custom" springs and blocks doesn't give your truck the capability to jump. You probably killed a tranny or engine mount.

Oh and a spindle lift won't let you jump either.

I used to launch mine all the time but the coilovers made for a nice landing.. I cant even start to image what custom lift springs would feel like.


define landing?

custom deaver coils, limit straps, got some btf uppers to put on...not crazy but not too far off from a quality "mid travel kit"

also springs werent meant for lift, more for quality wheel travel...landing was smooth, i mean i wasnt jumping school busses or anything but it has quality travel

its jumped out in the sand before too, does it at higher rpms and smoothly jumps out of gear, no wierd stuff but its annoying
