Hey everyone - New to this board

I thought I'd drop in and see what people are up to over here. I'm working on a 78 K5 with a 415ci on 1 ton divetrain. Its trimmed up on 4" of lift with 38x16 TSL's. I swapped Ford F150 57" leafs on the back and took advantage of the smooth ride and soft flex. A bunch of other stuff too, and its doing me well. What are you building?

Here's mine

Re: Hey everyone - New to this board

I think a recognise a few names here! Hahah (87sm465np208
) you vocalized that one over here too? I can laugh, I did my share when I was young! Mnorby & chevyman_400, catching the runs on video is fun and good for testing, but you gotta have a co-pilot to get the good stuff! I've been slacking lately and going solo. Drey and Gottagofast, thanks for the welcome. Your going to like the shackle flip.. I highly recommend looking into the 57's if for anything, the smooth ride.. the amazing flex is good too though.

Is everyone locked down for the winter? Being in southern California there is no real beginning or end to the 4x4 season... just a few weeks where mud makes an apearance and snow hits the highest peaks.

Yeah, can't wait to get the 57s in. Right now the 52s with an add-a-leaf and 4" blocks is way solid. Still have a couple inches of snow on the ground here. Now that I got my 60 in and matching gears been playing pretty much non stop, until I broke my front drive line Tuesday. Even parking lots are fun to wheel on with snow....

Re: Hey everyone - New to this board

Yeah! Looks like it flexes up pretty good as it is, but your cheating by using the frame twist [img]images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] ! I snapped my front CV shaft finally too. I'm looking for high angle options without the high angle price... so its junkyard shopping for now untill I finish my new chassis and get an acurate measurement for the front. Parking lot snow is the best, used to throw a big old Ford LTD into spins accross one when I was 17... we'd get a good 6 to 7 rotations before we'd stop on a snow bank.
