Small world! Dogpatch, you say? :tonka: If you ever need little parts transported down from the Grand Rapids area, and are flexible on timing, I may be able to help out.

Cranked my torsion bars about an inch tonight. Didnt seem to make much difference for ride height but it did seem to stiffen up the ride a little. Also took off my running boards and mud flaps. Wont be too long before i start pulling the motor and the front drivetrain out of the truck.

31's look pathetic on this thing. By the time im done i'll have 35's on it.

Well i decided the slightly torqued torsion bars werent going to hold me over for now. So i cranked them up as far as i could and threw a jeep leaf in the rear. now my 31's look so small

here's a pic of me just flexing around before i added the leaf in the rear



here's more screwing around after cranking up the torsions and adding a leaf



and here's a side view for comparison to the picture in my previous post
