Thanks guys. A lot of work's gone into this build. I love it! :)

I still need to open the passenger side beam window slightly. This will allow more down travel. Im still amazed at what kind of numbers this thing's pulling.

I let the suspension fully droop today to check clearances. I'm rather impressed if I do say so myself.

I would get an alignment before you drive it like that. Looks a little off.

I've done the SAS a few times and wanted to see what I could do with TTB. FOr what it is, I'm more than happy with the outcome. Plus I didnt have to regear another axle Lol.

Been awhile since I've been on. Since I've been gone, I've wheeled the **** outa this thing, rolled it once, and have decided to SAS it :D

Plans:

Narrowed 78 D44
4.56s
Lock-right locker
Yukon Chromo's with Alloy USA X-joints
Chevy high-steer knuckles
Extended radius arms with a twist (as usual)
Cherokee coils
Hydraulic bump stops
14" travel shocks ( Rancho 9000XL's )
Full exo-cage
Custom flat bed or standard bobbed ranger bed (if I can find a bed)

What made you finally decide to SAS? And I saw the pictures of your truck on its side. Glad you didn't tear it up to bad.

That's a gully right there 6 foot drop opp with a tiny little 4-wheeler path up it. NOT a good Idea to go down that way.

I had to look at the picture a few times and stare. I now see where the gully drop starts and you can tell by the front suspension. Sucks that it tipped, but hey....it's a truck, so back on its wheels and continue on right?
