I think we should post more often

Cmon Prerunner community!!! So let me tell you of my truck and the plans for it. Right now I have a 1993 Chevy 1/2 ton and its in Semi-Prerunner form. I recently built a trick spare tire carrier that bolt up to the existing holes already in the bed stakes so i dont have to put any new holes in my bed. I welded all of the unneccesary holes in my frame and smoothed it out. I just fabbed a 4 link rear end which wasnt as difficult as i though it would be. I just used the existing leaf spring brackets to mount the front of the arms. and then i attached some spring mounts from a old style Ford i beam springs. I put on some limiting straps to keep it from over extending. the only problem is that now the rear has tons of travel but the front is limited. I was thinking of trying to install some lift spindles from a 2wd to fit my 4wd a-arms. I was contemplating trading my rig in on a Nissan Hardbody. I had a killer 1993 Nissan 2wd that was an awesome prerunner. I had about $5,000 alone in the suspension but my dad traded it in on a Jimmy when i left for basic training. He said it was taking to much space in the driveway. But he gave me the lousy $6000 that he got for it. Now i hope some guy in Mexico is having the time of his life with it. I hope this get something going!!!!
