Damn, so much hate on one guy. What the hell'd he do? hahaha

Morgan, kind sir are we going to get to see this stuff installed by the 11th?

You know what's sad is since I don't do anything with my truck I get excited when I see other peoples trucks progress.

passed out last night before i could post my weekend updates.

worked literally all day on my spring packs. took my expo leafs and added the overload spring from the ranger leafs, as well as another leaf that i cut down to size to make a custom add a leaf. so now i have a 6 leaf pack, shes gnarley. i was getting tired of the shackles flattening my springs so this was on my to do list for a while now. gained about 3in rear lift and took out my 2in blocks. shes close to level with a lil lean now. truck rides fantastic! def can feel that the rear is a little more stiff, but she still soaks up bumps in the road like no other. ill post pics probably later today.

Also the overload should never be longer then the shortest leaf, your looking at negative arch at overload and added pressure on one spot.

do what i did. I have an OEM ranger leaf pack in there with 2 leafs from a chevy 64 pack. No overload is needed, and i can haul 800lbs in the bed with 1.5" sag. AND it rides beautiful empty. This give me 12" travel only limited by the shocks.




Travel is pretty good too.




Truck looks good too bro, need some glass front and rear, i am digin the cap too. Love that adventure look. Who built your front bumper for you?


And welcome to the mid travel club. Well sorta. get those installed first :)
