<font color=green>Yeah, I've seen the pics of the front from when you first did it, and saw the rear pics on CK5 a while back. The rear looks like it might work as a kit, but the front certainly does look far too complicated to offer it as such.
It worked great at Moab just a couple of weeks back. I acquired a little body rash in Pritchett canyon and on Hells revenge. I also drove it there and back (2300 miles round trip.) I left for Moab only 3 days after completing the rear conversion.
my buddy Joe and I were comtemplating doing such a conversion on his truck with either coil-overs or airbags w/ 18" travel. Then just bob the frame off right behind the axle and have an awesome departure angle
Hey Mr. Frisbie. I'm in the middle of my own project. What diameter shocks did you run in the rear? All I have been reading about is 2" for rock crawlers but I would think I would need something a little beefier to hold up a 1 ton truck. Looks great and very inspiring by the way.
The coilovers are King 2.5'' prerunner series with 16'' of travel. They should be fine for your truck as long as you do not plan on heavy hauling or towing. The big issue is more coil spring rate than the actual shock.
What if I do plan on towing and hauling? I'll be running a 3 link, with panhard bar. I can't fit a 4 link with the fuel tank where it's at right now. But anyway, your saying keep the rate of the valving on the shock less than the spring rate correct?
