even when he wants to flex it to the max? he'll wanna keep them hooked up? is that the way that is designed, to stay connected but able to get good articulation/flex?

Yes, they stay hooked up all the time. the way its designed with the torsion bar and length of the arms allow the suspension to flex.

actually you dont, the bar just twists, but it is enough force to keep the body of the truck level. its pretty cool probably why its 400 bucks

mmm, its on all 4s! Just need to get the winch and batter back on. Then bleed the brakes if that goes well which it normally never does then I should be able to drive it some tomorrow. My fuel line is just kinked and no fuel line. So gotta wait on that.

Its a bit higher that I thought it was going to come out, should go down some with the winch and battery then just settle out hopefully an inch lower. The springs are STIFF compared to the jeep springs, idk if i did my calculations wrong or if the calculator itself was wrong, maybe its fine, have not drove it yet.







Yeah! Tire is in the center of the fender well. LOL





maybe some outside pics tomorrow.
