Running the dunes at 60+ is for the long travel buggies.
Oh, it'll see those speeds plenty at the dunes, and once my Jeep is done it'll be right there with it. He didn't buy long travel remote resi shocks and Deaver leafs for nothing.

Does 1300+ lb-ft of torque count?

Thanks. We'll have it up there one of these days.

I think all the parts and materials came down to somewhere in the area of $6-7k not counting wheels and tires. He's my best friend so I wasn't gonna charge much for labor but he ended up paying for half of my plasma cutter and lots of beer.

Out back, none. The block is only there because the 10" coils gave 12" of lift and he wanted to level it out. Up front would require quite a bit. As it is I pushed the axle about 1.5" forward to prevent rubbing on the fenders, put the truck much lower and it'd still rub. I like the lower stance too but this is what he wanted.

He might get some sooner or later. He's also thinking about some Bushwacker pocket flares for it.

Axle end uses SuicideDoors poly bushings(cheap and 1/4" wall sleeve), frame end lowers are 1.25" shank JJs, uppers are .75" shank Ballistic Fab flex joints.

Unfortunately no. They stopped renting it out a while back so we've been staying at ValDu since then.....that place kinda sucks now so I'm not sure what we'll do next.
