I meant rear, but I drink so....I really like how it's turning out, that's real close to what I had planned. Wish I had the time and resources to knock one of these out in a month.

thanks for all the comments guys i really appreciate it. yes it is comming along fast but i am usually welding by 4am and quit at 6 or 7 pm 6 days a week (obsessed like a crack head) I figure i am going to have ruffly 4500 to 5000 in this minus rear steer setup axel and controls. I have been lucky sold the S-10 body for 1500 and the shocks and link bars for 1800 . I do like BIG SHOCKS on my rig for many reasons as stated by erin. EVERY THING MECHANICAL BREAKS. and i have seen some break but Jarod builds shocks, he does not put your limit straps on for you or set your rig up correctly that is your job! if I roll this thing and all that happens is a bent shock I hope it makes YOUTUBE because my shock will be fixed the next day whether its mine or your BIG SHOCK. I run a business and service is KING
