034x4 SAS V 2.0

Trucks in the shop. Started tearing it down last night. Didn't take any pics yet.

Will have pics tonight. Basically i am re-doing everything I don't like from the original build (pretty much all of it) now that i have more knowledge/experience.

I figured I'd start a new thread since my last one was 30+ pages and this is a "new" build.

Here's the obligatory "before" shots

I'll be keeping the current wheels/tires/axles for now.

Plans include 3 link + panhard front (keeping steering box for street use) and 4 link rear.

Some tube work as well.

Got the majority of the tear down finished tonight. Rough cut all the BS off the truck with the torch and will clean them up next time I work on it. Also removed alot of under-hood stuff I'm not going to need/will be in the way as well as some stuff off the back...

Alot of the stuff coming off is for sale. If you see anything you want, let me know before it gets tossed.

Front and rear leafs, rear shocks will not be tossed, but are for sale if anyone is interested.
