I will debate this with you until u get sick of seeing my name. the reason the trucks got away from leaf spring set ups is the same reason rock crawlers and other off road sports have gotten away from them. Leaf springs are a very ruff ride, it is hard to gain an extreme amount of articulation out of them, it is hard to gain extreme amounts of lift out of them. as the monster truck world evolved, and went from a 48 x 31 X 20 inch tire to the 66 x 43 x 25 inch tire they also had to up grade axles. the original trucks were only 2.5 tons and ah they gained HP and flying higher, technology evolved and they needed and wanted to upgrade. I am sure some did break but you are also talking 10,000 + pounds of truck flying threw the air and landing hard and at odd extreme angles. NOT plowing threw the mud keeping all 4 tires firmly planted. this truck will never see anything but mud. NO rocks, no pavement, no snow, JUST MUD!! Trucks here in Florida are not rock crawlers many of people here run Large perches and have NOT had issues if the break, bend, or anything else then I will change the design. Until the time comes that I have any issues with them I will leave the way the truck is set up. As far as my ladder bars are made, use I am using Jeep trac arms for my ends. They have bushings, I get them for free and the 1 x 2 box tubing that is welded fully to them is just as strong if not stronger then any premade bars you can buy. The set on the Ranger is the 5th set I have made. One set on my old 86 F150 that was on 39's a set on my buddy's Jeep that is on 38 boggers, a set that is on his full size Chevy on 46 claws and a set on my brother in-laws truck on 39 boggers. out of the 4 sets in use not a single set has bent threw out tugs and mudding.

To every one that has giving me positive comments thank you very much. I am hoping my maiden voyage is soon. To those of you that do not like the build oh well. This is my truck not yours and if you do not like it Oh Fukin well

Well right on who gives a crap what anyone else thinks, i hate a lot of stuff people put on their trucks but i dont start anything cause its what you like bro, i like leaf sprung trucks, when i finish my old f150 it will be sas dana 60 and all leaf sprung with some big boggers, thats just me truck is awesome, way i look at it if it doesnt break who gives a ****, i have seen some of the most rigged stuff be more capable than a guy who has 100,000 dollars in his rig. Make it like YOU want bro, and everyone on this site who has some **** to say GTFO. Im sick of all the BS when people think cause they wouldnt do it that way that its the wrong way. If I want to make a Front wheel drive truck (not that i ever would) then i shouldnt get any crap about it. RF has too many haters.
