T_Schloesser's Project FL-RUNNER

ok so this is the deal. i'm 19 and living at home. i'm going to college on a full tuition scholarship. yes i pay all my bills except rent, and i'm a full-time bartender. i'm not sure if anyone has noticed my truck's transformation over the past three years (one year of which being a member here). but due to recent problems i'm making a DRAMATIC change IMO.

project will be underway as soon as the new kit is delivered this week.

let these few pics do the talking...

Once this is installed we are meeting up without a doubt. I have to feel what the truck rides like with prerunner suspension. Are you going to uncrank your torsion bars?

entry level 6.0 i don't plan on putting her in the air again (http://youtube.com/watch?v=qeC_eoYTTLw). i figure if i can break a fabtech spindle and in need of spending 500$ for a new set of spindles, i'm better off upgrading!

I spotted that bent spindle when you drove past me on I-75, I called Kelly and told him to inform you of it.

At least, I am pretty sure that's why your tire was bent funny that day.

Wouldn't have helped, Tim was the one number I didn't have. How'd you bend that spindle anyway?
