got my shackle flip done. added another leaf to my bastard pack to regain some of the lost height. it was gonna be hit or miss, and im thinkin this was a hit. the suspension feels great, not too stiff, and the leafs have plenty of arch. i went all out (for the most part) and cleaned up the frame and bed while i was there.








now a few showoff shots.. took this last night, and got tagged for no front plate as i was leaving. ive only had the pleasure of meeting nice peace officers, but this guy was a complete dick. oh well.. and before you ask, yes superbrightleds.com is on my **** list, and yes its because my tail light doesnt work.


flexs really well.

I am beyond glad I'm not required to run a front plate!

But the truck is looking good man. Seems like you are a little low in the back still but nothing to crazy.

You need a wider rear axle or some wheel spacers for the rear. Looks good though!

oh snap. Do you have them in the front also? I'd take them off if so to try and keep the wheels in front a little more tucked in.

ive got 2in up front. had the 1.5s up there and the 2s in the back, that made the wheels sit pretty even, but the 2s are hubcentric and dont give me wheel wobble.
