As long as she sits on top the 37's itll be where I want it!

They're 5" trail gear HD's with a 4" lift shackle... we had to french the frame for the rear hangar to help with pinion angle...

I'm almost positive I'm gonna have a new shackle made once this is all said and done... Probably go for a 2" lift shackle over the 4" one I have now... But for now, this is what I have.

I know your drag link should be parallel with the tie rod, but I've seen several cases where it's at a slight degree difference and things have been just fine. So we'll see when we go to set steering up... Hoping to have the axle under it tomorrow afternoon and by the time I get off work start on the steering box so I can take the pressure inlet line off the pump and have the hydraulic ends crimped on and the 90* fitting put on that same hose for the steering box.

With all that lift, It looks like you pinion angle will be fukced up. With not enough caster.

Maybe its just the angle, but it looks like the axle is going to be really far forward if its centered on the leafs.

That's the point. So when the suspension compreses the axle moves back and it being forward does a couple things.

1. Won't let the tire eat fender
2. Gives you better approach angle when wheeling.

That axle is damn near the ranger width... but when I put the adapters on the rear, I'll have to push the fronts out to match cuz right now I'm ribbon springs at not even full lock... but its sitting right where I want it... gonna have my gear guy come look at the caster tomorrow with the shackles I'm running cuz right now im setting about 2 positive... Just a rough guess...

looks really good Trevor!! Im really liking how forward the axle is.. that should work great for you and definantly save your fenders!! however, one problem I see in your future is the same problem im dealing with myself! its the front pinion angle... Since you have so much lift your driveline angle will be steep to begin with. so when you wheel it since you have front leafs when your suspension travels and droops or when you really getting on the throttle your leafs will wrap on you a little your yoke will dive even further down making your driveline angle bind (this is due to the rear shackle setup)..

To fix this the only things i can think of is to shim it OR cut and rotate the C's... however shimming it can lead to poor caster and effect drivability... and cutting and rotating is timely and can be tricky. (donno if its even possible to clock our T-cases either but if it is that could work too??).... but unfortunately i have learned all of this due to experience... i have taken my truck out wheeling twice and have blow up 2 u-joints already....

Just thought of passing on the info... personally i just shimmed mine 6 degrees... it doesnt drive terrible either...

question: are your springs military wrapped? cause i think all the TG's are.. aka that good for your setup and will help control the wrap a little bit better!! anyways good stuff man!!
