I like it, not a fan of leaf springs but I like the full width the the look of it. Ditch those spacers though.

Uh, yeah, ditch those spacers for sure. Otherwise not bad, except for being a huge poser without a front driveshaft!

Cause he needs one?? im no expert but i thought leaf sprung trucks still had tracbars? my buddys superduty on leafs does plus i have ridden in a rock truck with leafs and no track and it wouldnt get over 35 mph without shaking.... (the truck has 39.5x16.5 Pitbulls and creeper joint shackle mounts with 2 piece shackles) so the axle could wander pretty far and there were dead spots in the steering...<< maybe thats why it was bad?? idk. please inform me

thats what you thought? answer my next post quesiton then? what keeps the axle under the truck? there is still play in the leafs hangers and bushings, the axle will still move side to side causing a dead spot in the steering...

well i was only thinking about how my budys samurai is set up.. hes running leaf springs and drop shackles up front and no track bar. im no expert i just assumed you would not need one on a leaf sprung truck.

is it a DD? or just a trail truck? lots of trail trucks dont have trackbars cause they never get over 30 mph nor do they need very precise steering... however for a DD i think its different... Correct me if im wrong, but wont the axle still move side to side because of bushings and shackles without a trackbar holding it? resulting in loose steering (slop)?? idk, it makes sense to me, tell me what you guys were thinking

he probably also has traditional shackle mounts and 1 piece shackles, not the trail-gear creepers that move side to side like crazy... idk
