I would, but the bottom half of the truck is pretty much black, rims, tires, exhaust, driveline, control arms.

We'll see.




repacked my wheel bearings, brake service, and removed the Cb radio. Im leaning towards keeping it and running Bride seats and a center console. between selling all the stock parts, should pay for the seats.

More pics.

ever know that feeling you get when you see something, and the gears start turning and you realise that its possible and in time, can afford it... well that just happened to me...

ive taken the deavers off my order from BCST. its either the 64s or a link for me.

already have a JY explorer axle in my shop, and a locker showing up tomorrow for it.

id rather go deaver then the 64 kit (same brand leaf)

no for what its worth, wanting a cage, seats, harness, and a link, im seriously considering this for a mid spring build. iève been holding off cutting the truck, but its going to happen one day. May as well save the cash for leafs and just go nuts. Its not going to be raced, so i dont need to back half the truck.


deaver setup.
deavers $693
shocks 450
drop hanger $150
shackle $100
ruff stuff deaver mount kit $120.

That 1500 before tax for leafs out back, no cage.

Now links.
Coilover shocks 363 each 14"
coils 60 x4
links i can make so say $250 in steel
mounts $80 in steel
100ft of dom, 350-400 to half cage the truck.

thats roughly 1600. add heims, some plate steel to box the bed in and keep it sealed, and my own labor time. if im there, may as well go all the way.

will need solid mount pucks too. But a bunch of minor things. but 100% do-able. I need to save up, get a demo vehicle, and park the truck so i can do it, but, why not. looking at the money, even if its 2500, im game to have a caged linked rear end. maybe ill put LT on the front next spring and have one solid prerunner

I like the way that bed cage is set up. I would do the filler differently. Like that guy on here who slammed his truck and has a b2 tank with a stainless gascap.
