That's awesome, I'd like to know more about your front suspension, up until now all I have seen is leaves instead of coils.

btw, lol as soon as I read you had a waggy d44 up front I went straight to the first pics and was so confused looking at the IFS- it pays to read it all hahahaha

Ahh... the U.P. I love the trails up there way more then down here.

These picture is great. Can't tell most of the wheelers up there run Jeeps can ya? Haha...



Also, I thought someone was saying you had tube framed the entire front end. It looks like that in the flex pictures, but I'm guessing you did that after you did the SAS. Got any pictures of that?

Nevermind, guess sometimes you just gotta learn to read more.

Love that front bumper and the coil spring setup!

Could you get some better shots of the 4-link? I like the idea of using 1 upper and a panhard... that is clever.

EDIT... I found some more pictures, but I'd like a shot of the setup perhaps from the underside of the truck looking towards the front from under the cab? Does your panhard bar ever hit your oil pan? It looks precariously close in one picture.

The panhard has since been changed because it was WAY to short. But to answer your question, no it never hit. I can try to get some better pics of the links this weekend when i get the truck back to my house.
