Nice job in the video. Sounds good and seemed to hook up well




I'm surprised your running radius arms. God I don't miss those days. Radius arms were so hard on my axle.
You need to link the rear and lose the end foot of frame and bed.

It's a hybrid radius arm setup like the Jeep long arm kits use...not like a ford setup. It works better than it really should....it cycles through 16" of shock with out binding, it flexes good, it doesn't unload on climbs and best of all it fits under the truck. I could separate the upper into a 3 link but i don't really see a reason. I would gladly 4 link it but i would have to lift the truck a significant amount. Only reason it fits now is because the trac bar pushes the axle over during up travel.

as for the rear....if i did it i would want coil overs to match the front....only way to do that would be to hack the frame at the cab because you are not getting them around the frame as is. I would rather just keep the leafs for now since they work really well and try to save pennies to get into a buggy.

I mean, it's not like it doesn't flex



Loosing the over hang would nice though

The over hang is what stood out in my mind on the video.

I really should fix this thing. Kinda said having it sit in the garage broke. We did discuss how to fix it this weekend. As much as i want to 4 link it, it's just no worth having to lift it. Looks like i will be staying with the radius arms, just a little stronger this time.
