wow thats some major fab. It looks real good but that big old notch in the frame might make it hard to lift again if you ever change your mind again.

Badass truck man.

One question, on the 2 link, maybe I can't see, but what keeps the axle from shifting side to side?

there is a bar that cross's under the drive shaft 6th pic down u can see it .... most people have slopp in the pinion angle but i asked fopr them to set it tight and it doesn't move at all so i'm very happy they do kick *** work they are in dallas to




edit

no they'r not working on the front yet they will be soon it's gonna cost me 4 grand to get the front done like i want it done... A/C Frame Z'd Laying on 20+ inch Wheels so when it goes to the shop for the front it'll have inner tubs smoothed firewall and alot other stuff

how choped up will the bed be? btw there is a guy up here in the show circut and he is baged and notched like that he took his floor pan in the bed and raised it up to where the notch was and we welded it to the inner sides and oyu know finished it up and painted the whole truck. the bed floor is like 12" down from from the top rails but it looks really clean and nice install no floor cutting...
