Yah. A 20" light bar will be $320... A 30" is $375...

But I can build the bumper and buy the lightbar at a later time.

The bumpers I can build for free, just gas and welding wire.

I also just Ordered my Off Road Design Custom leaf springs yesterday.

4 weeks!!!

No, cuz I cant mount shocks and bumps until I take the spring packs apart and cycle them... Sucks. I can have everything decently ready. But I wont make it there in this.

Ill ride with my buddies though and have my quad. Hit me up if your gonna be up opening weekend!!!


And yah they design springs and have a local shop make them. They asked me like every detail, what motor, bumpers, number of batteries, axles, tires, cage etc..
Anything that has weight they work into making a perfect spring. My 4" springs will have 11" of totall travel. Pretty bitchin.

The springs from www.offroaddesign.com are $630 a pair plus shipping.


They calculate everything into them. I've heard great things.

Got the shackle flip done. Started at 3:30am. Got done at 6 am. Looked outside and sun was starting to come up. So we said eff it lol. We will nap at noon lol.


It's 6" shackles that I got with the flip. I think drilling them to 4" will make the angle perfect and drop me down a little bit.

I gained 6.5" in the rear how it sits.






Mr.clean with the air hammer. You guys are nuts. Tool twenty min with a sharp air hammer bit to get the rivets cut and brackets out








Ratchet straps to hold the axle.






6" shackle is too long. I knew this going in anyways. No biggie.




Front is not lifted but we picked it up even with the rear.



Front won't go down any more as the shocks are maxed out lol.



I'm 6'2" FYI.

Damn that's a pretty penny, lol... But I have to ask for that much for one pair, why not just go four link with air shocks?

The springs are for the front. I don't wanna mess with all that just yet. Not on this rig anyways.

The rear is all shackle flip.


That's a much better price than a set of Deaver springs cost.

These 4" lift 48" front springs, will have 11" of travel.

Fock!!!

I need to go crossover.

Whose got any parts that doesn't want a small fortune. Didn't plan this in my budge but the push/pull won't work with my shocks and where they need to be mounted.

Also the drag links would be max we out at full bump and droop with push pull, so might as well do it now.

They will mill and drill your flat tops and index them if you want.

You can get them with or without the index.

I believe that a waggy/j10 pitman arm will work for your application. I don't know what the legnth of a 2wd pitman arm is though to compare.
