bingo! well that's my guess too

the rear bumper is getting cut off, and the frame shortened up how ever much i can hack off up to the shackle mounts. then i'll do something like i have on the front, just a piece of 2x4x.250 wall then wrap some tubing around the bottom of the bed like Zach.

The front is gonna look a bit like this.

Thanks, that was the idea

I just wish it was clear. I have one more cool picture in mind, but i need to get my rock lights working again.. I think i went a little crazy with the wire cutters when we were tearing the truck down for the SAS.

there's nothing but some surface rust on the frame.

on the roof and cowl there's still lots of metal shavings from being in a fab shop for over a month having all the metal shavings fall on it..

and its not that dirty, thats about as clean as that truck gets! I spent a few bucks and washed it off once i got back to texas before i unloaded it.


(no thats not how it was secured for the final journey)

I should, Tim (diesel ranger)said he's gonna take his in for the clattering, bad vibrations and the works


My front end rides very nice, despite what everone said about the front shackle.. the bad part is the ~1" of up travel so any dip or bump worth a damn makes the axle hit the bump stop, and thats the rough part.
