that truck is amazing. turned out great. by far the most inspirational thing keeping me motivated to finish my truck. how tall were you able to get that front tire off the ground? enough to climb up on a 37" tire?

it seems like your rear end could be a little softer. you still got a few more inches to stuff up that rear tire

Thanks, I think it would climb a 37" tire I never lifted a tire off the ground when i was doing it. The rear is a little stiff, but they are new spring so it may take some time to break them in.

take some measurements and save them because i bet that youll gain at least 5 more inches of uptravel once they break in. then maybe a longer shackle up front to make up for the sag, giving even more down travel. this thing is unbelievable

hopefully soon. sadly, i just finished my chevy 64 leaf swap in the rear the other day and before i even got to flex it out, my buddy stopped by to take my 8.8 away from me :( so now its sitting on jackstands once again and now im at the point of no return. Its been 120 degrees over here for the past couple weeks so i stay in doors as much as i can. hopefully picking up a welder in a few weeks so that i can tack stuff together and not have to wait for my buddy whos certified.

yesterday i woke up at 6am to beat the heat and to start removing the d60 from the donor and im wondering if the ebrake will swap over. i know your running disks but did you happen to see if the ebrake was interchangable? also, how much did the disk conversion cost you?

Theirs no hook up for the e-brake for the conversion that i did. I think their is a differnt caliper that u can use for the e-brake conversion. I think is was around $400.
I got my bracket from ruffstuff. Worked perfectly.
