It's pretty sweet. Getting busy though. I'm going to River Rock the end of this month.

Truss for my d44 so I can 3-link it.

ya i'll be in GA until december/january. I doubt anything is going to be done to the ranger during that time. I'm buying a motorcycle to take it california and i'm leaving the ranger behind. When I grad from school i'll then be putting rocks/4-links/doubler/49's on and hopefully have even less sheetmetal than I do now.

How much did this project cost in total? I'm not sure if you posted it, but I'm on page 27 and have yet to see anything. Good work, tho. Amazing talent to do this.

Thanks for the props, but as far as total cost I haven't told anyone. It's still under wraps so to speak. Most people want to know how much you can do a SAS for, but I had custom springs made, both axles are built to hilt so I threw WAY more money into it than most people would, but mine is for rock-crawling and I need the extra strength.

if i had to guess id say he has at least 1800 in the front end alone, and another 1000 in the rear. then springs prolly 500. this isnt including tires, rims, steel, or any of the little ****

When you sell that suspension are you gonna put something else in there just in case the truck needs to move or are you gonna just leave it on jack stands till you get to do what you want to it?
