I would like to cut my fenders like beards and do a custom bumper and take off the bodylift. So it won't be this tall for long I don't think.

looks great man! how much up travel do you have? also looks like its about what we figured in height. once you take the BL off it should be a hair higher than mine. by the looks of it. get me a measurement to the bottom of the headlight once you drive it some.

How do you calculate for ride height? I realize you 'build' it at ride height, but as far as springs and height and all go... For instance, how did you know the coilovers would hold the truck at that height and know the lenght coilover you needed and all?

Springs. You build it around what length shock you want to run.

Best way is to get the corner weights of the truck, and figure out your spring rates with that, and how much you want to compress before it holds the truck up. (16" shock, you want 50/50 travel, so you need it to compress 8")

Lower that down about a foot.

his is pretty tall right now but after removing the BL he will be ok.

idk how you guys get them so low sometimes, i would have 0 up travel and bottoming out all the time. :( i want mine 3-4 inches lower but i dont know how i could do that without really cutting up the front end. then add a D60 housing and a 5.4L there just wont be much room at all!
