Sweet rigs.

Basically all I have to do is figure out yokes for the transfer case and how to mount the front leafs, otherwise it's pretty easy?


I also found this which he would be running similar tire size.

I just have to read through the whole guys thread, the only problem is it doesn't look like his truck has the damn crumple zones like mine, which complicate the front leaf mount.

Nah....use good 3/8 angle and a channel spreader. Weld or drill and bolt thru the flats in the ripples.

I'm kind of slow in the head so sorry I'm not that great at understanding stuff when I read it.

I think I just don't understand how to weld up the ripples in the crumple zone and that stuff.

Just place the plate or angle on the surface. Over the ripples.....Literally takes 40 minutes to put the front spreaders and mounts on..no welding
