I see your still running leafs on the rear, Are you going to four link it with the 9"? I figured with new front arms the droop will lack in the rear. What are the plans for the other truck or did I miss that?

Thank you, gotta get a driveline made then it will be driving again. Can't wait to try the spool and 5.86s. The rear sits at 78" wide.

Thanks guys, So I got headers, intake and BBK throttle body for the 4.0. Hoping with the 5.86s it will be kinda fast. Definately a big dif from the 2.3.

Got a lot done today

- mounted bump stops
- braced engine cage
- valved all shocks
- double sheared and mounted rear shocks
- installed BBK throttle body
-mounted grill and headlights

Almost ready


Believe it or not the valving was .08 Comp and .10 rebound front and rear. Can't believe it handled as well as it did before.

I changed it to:

-Front
Comp- .15
Reb - .10

-Rear
Comp- .12
Reb- .08

Do you think .08 rebound on the rear would be too much?
