Some reading material
Look into the Chevy section for more linked nbs threads. There are quite a few. Reading these will make your build easier.

plasma cut all front end ifs suppression brackets off and ground most down, ready to start mocking up some plate steel to plate frame in a little for some more strength.

siettas81 January 3rd, 2017 05:58 AM

I don't know what happened to the build thread, but I'd look for more info on this truck. It was a well done and low 3-linked Silverado.

Reinforce that frame while its torn apart. They were known for cracking right behind the shock mounts. However that may not be an issue with a different setup like yours. Either way i still would for peice of mind and it wont take much effort. If you google youll find some pics of the exact spot

kevsCJ7 January 3rd, 2017 09:45 AM

Are you using the box or getting rid of it??

siettas81 January 3rd, 2017 10:13 AM

yup plan to reinforce frame going to start cutting cardboard templets out for mock up

what box ? like the truck bed or steering box ?

Cool, a build thread from a new member with what appears to be a phenomenon called "ambition". Exciting stuff! Looking forward to the updates.

siettas81 January 3rd, 2017 12:11 PM

Yeah I am trying to get good info from all you veterans and get it built right the first time !

I guess, i need a better definition of "low" that thing looks to be lifted at least 12" before putting tires on...it's very nice though.

SHARPMACHINE January 3rd, 2017 12:58 PM

Welcome to the sight....

I was trying to attach the bdmt build that strangler did years ago, but could not find it...

This might be worth reading though.


kevsCJ7 January 3rd, 2017 01:01 PM

Sorry, truck bed

Ok, found the thread on pirate from the original build. Chopperman built it with 6" of lift compared to stock. Somewhere in there he said you might be able to get away with 4" if you made some other compromises. Either way, super clean execution.
