I need new back tires.. these are worn out..

I took about 2 degrees of camber out of each side in the front as well. I'm confident enough with my own skills of being able to get a bite that I don't need the aid of the tires on the nose anymore.

Looks good . . . hopefully you don't loose this one

Are you gonna run your new exhaust out the back like it was or different this time? (Maybe Lightning Style? )


Once again truck is looking great.

So how's the panhard setup so far? worth the effort? If it is, I think I know what I am doing this weekend!

Im going to twist pipes this weekend. Im making them as wide as possible by the bedsides instead of under the frame rails.

I can take a good corner VERY hard staying on the throttle. I plan on doing some filming tonight so.. You'll see. So long as the front end holds together that is.. I took my camber out for the winter so.. Its all on driver skill now.

It is like driving a totally different car/truck. A swaybar is ' ok ', but having the axle steady under the frame is a totally different thing. Swaybars are LAME compared to this.

Yep. Everything I have fabbed gets painted red. Makes things easier. I keep a logbook of all the mods I have done with specifications and such. Basically.. outside of the frame bracing and crossbeams I added in ( Nope, no flex in my frame! ), almost all the suspension will be fabbed by myself. If I can get ahold of this other member in ROchester for a set of 2wd XL/XLT spindles, you might see my front end being done very soon.
