Holy body lift on that first Jeep.

I find it funny it has Swamper Boggers tracks on it but it's sitting on Firestone all terrains.

Leave it to me to point that out.

at least that isnt as bad as the Suburban up there.

I'm liking the shackles on that last Jeep, as for the pringle can mod, when done right, they can net upwards of 15 WHEEL horsepower.

hah

Nice pics.

Holy ****, thats like a 9" spacer.

I don't believe I didn't notice that. lmao

If you can make your own blocks, just go grab some extended ubolts, and go like 3".

I'm surprised nobody said the obvious thing yet.
Hockey Pucks are like 2 bucks per puck at just about any sporting good store.

Hillbilly lift. we had a 91 F250 lifted on Hockey pucks.
I don't know what the negative connotation is with them. that was the best damn idea we ever had.

So you made your own "lift blocks" and want to cut off the pin that keeps the axle in place?

PLEASE take out your home made blocks and go get some REAL lift blocks which have the pin to keep them in place. If the pin was not needed, ford wouldn't have put it there. Your truck is unsafe and you are endangering the life of other people on the road with safe vehicles.

If you think what you have is fine, post a pic and lets see it.

you can tee anything other than two blocks of steel, and i didn't cut it off and nor did i ever say anything were i was talking about cutting off the pin, besides why the hell would i cut it off with would be quicker and easier to just hold it with a pair of vise grips and take the nut that is onto off cutting it would be a ****ing ordeal, i first of all didn't know there was a pin therel it was a suprise, and right not it sits down in blocks, anyways, i'm pretty sure that one bracket is welded to the axle since it didn't move at all then we dropped the axle, and ways i still need to make sure it is, if that is the case i'm welding the blocks to that bracket, if not, then i'm going to take a bolt the same size, cutting the head off, grind out the top of my blocks enough for a nut then put a nut on the top to tighten it. and if it makes you feel better i'm not hauling any loads until i do so, for normal driveing, nothing extreme the u-bolts will be enough to hold it, since they are so tight it cant really slip on the leaf spring, now under load that may be dangerous, so with that said, please get off my ***, i have it covered mom, lol. :P

ohh damn, i'm a hillbilly, i'm soo hurt, and you are just such a badass for calling me that, ay, you have no idea how little i care about what you think about me, any ways for all you **** who just love *****ing at the "hillbilly" i had some down time so i rolled my truck in the shop and welded the lift blocks to that bracket that is on top of the axle, and i repeat the pin is there, it sets into the blocks, the blocks are welded fast with about a whole stick used for each side, it is one inch of steel, that pin aint going any were, and if anybody is going to be stupid enough to ask how i would take it off, its called and angle grinder witha cutting wheel on, so any other questions, if not then how about you have a big ol' cup of shut the **** up!

theres no use arguing with you. you're too stupid to offend anyways. your 89 **** box of a pick up truck has no business being jerry rigged with anything. How you cant spend 50 dollars on doing something the proper way shows how ignorant and careless you are. Nothing you are building, welding, or jerry rigging is going to be any bit of quality. Nothing you have done would be any bit of quality due to the fact you wouldnt even dish out a minimal amount of money to lift your rear end.

you're looking for ways to raise your front end as well? why dont you use a c-clamp to compress your spring and throw some crushed beer cans under it. Instant 2 inch lift!!!
Im calling you a hillbilly cuz you are one. Sad thing is..most hillbillies are stupid as sh*t...but drive nice trucks...you unfortunately...

anyways..you're on a forum posting up something stupid, and everyone is telling you what you're doing is stupid...then you get mad when you read their posts?

good luck with your future endeavors with your vehicle.













dumbass.

Couldn't have said it better. Please just make sure your ****box never enters California, I wouldn't want to be anywhere near it.

Thanks

dude, your a dick.

dude, i'm not a dick just when people are like that to me, one i'm in high school so of course i'm not rolling in money, two i'm good with welding and making things out of metal, so usualy the things i make are pretty good, three, i'm really not stupid, make honer rool every time, i;m also an acomplished musician and made the us army all american marching band, 125 of the best high school senior musicians form across the country, don't belive me look it up, four, why in the hell should you have to pay money when you have the skill to make something in stead, yes i should of known about that pin but its fixed now, and that fifty dollars in my gas tank. and my truck really isn't that bad, i actulaly am told that it i keep it looking good, the body is in great shape and so is the interior, no mechanical issues, so in my book thats not a piece of ****, if you don't like what i do then ignore it, i mean its not really that hard to do, and don't worry i never plan to go to california
