We got this truck in for a rear suspension redue. It features some aim garbage that will all be replaced with Quality components to ensure a trouble free ride.
This is what we started with.

Very Impressive work... Thats what I like to see... I gotta ask the stupid question Where the HELL are ya'll located? I checked the website and all... NOTHING

Love the cantilievered Shock deal. Though I gotta ask, is there functionality to it, or just cause it looked cool?

God, I hate seeing stuff like this, makes me wanna learn WTF I am doing somehow and do it for a living... It'd be SO MUCH better than "work"

Need Help!? :wave:

The canti is functinal. double convoluted bags are made for a ratio of 2:1 in a 1;1 setting they ride horibale. By using the arm I was able to get the bag closer to it's 2:1 and produce a better ride.

Looks like some pretty impressive work you guys are doing to that truck. Oh one more thing, tell me you are going to replace the fuel tank with a, much better looking, fuel cell! :brick:
We built an encloser and mounts for the cell in the rear part of the frame he is saving up some $ to buy the cell and install it.
