We are getting closer!

PAC Racing Springs.



Getting crowded under there!



Resi. mounts. I used 1.25 PVC pipe that I notched on both ends, and just a simple hose clamp to hold everything. Nice and snug.

The coilovers look great. You've got a very nice set up there. Going to be a very stout rig.

Nice meeting you as well. The tires are in better shape than I was expecting, will certainly be more than what I need. I appreciate the deal.
Looking forward to seeing how your rig does with the coilovers. Definitely going to be giving us some ideas for our builds. Have to get out and wheel sometime.

Getting the limit straps on it. Set them about 1.5" from full extension of the shock, planning for a little stretch in them.

Nope. Don't forget I'm still around only 3-4" of lift. I have the coil-overs set up of 4.5-5" of up travel and around 5" of down travel. I didn't gain any travel with the coil-overs, just tune-ability and a better ride.

Despite some of the bad news we've had with our Dogs, we were able to make it up to the Dunes for a quick day run. I didn't get any action shots but some friends did and I'll have to track them down.


I ended up running a 275 over 300 lbs srpings with a 150 psi charge. It worked great, but was a little on the soft side for the big hits. Definitely need to look into some air bumps and some rear shocks.


Here are some of the pics I took.




The steering is temporary, I plan buying the RuffStuff 1-ton TRE kit. That will help my steering to trac-bar angles big time.
