Thank man! ^^
Well I ordered my 2" O.D. by 0.25 square tubing today for my extended radius arms. Will be ordering my Johnny Joints from Currie next paycheck (they're as big as a soda can) and the weld-in bungs from Ballistic Fabrication. Time to get serious!!
cash in hand....wanna build me a set?
Adding in my labor costs, It'll be just as much if not more for you to buy them from James duff.
O well then.
I can give you all my measurements if you'd like.
I take it there is no safety inspections out there in PA.?
cause when I lived in MO. If you did anything like that a certified frame shop had to sign off on it, then get inspected by the highway patrol
Lol I work at a certified frame shop. That's where it's getting welded. Either way, the mounts are copied from Aftermarket extended radius arms and are 50 state legal the way Im doing it.
nice, yeah MO was a pain in the ass if you did anything like that. unless you knew an inspector willing to look the other way.
Here's PA lift laws. Nothing about suspension modifications are noted. Just no front lift blocks, which is a good thing.
Yea, that would be much appreciated!
^ PM sent bro.
Okay, I've been slacking on updates. I've decided to sell the lift I bought and do a full out custom longarm build with custom steering. Im aiming for 20+ inches of usable wheel travel.
Parts are as followed:
Misc. Steel & tubing
Ballistic Fab flex joints and DOM bushing inserts
F250 shock brackets
12" travel shocks (Rough Country N2.0)
4.5" Early Bronco coils (roughly 280 ppi)
1 ton GM T.R.E's
Misc. tubing inserts for custom Stonecrusher steering setup
Rough Country Stainless steel braided brake hoses
Im sure there's other stuff Im forgetting. I'll add it as it arrives.
My $35.00 purchase WITH good u-joints.
More goodies in the mail today. Stainless braided brake hoses and true 1 ton t.r.e.'s. The brake hoses come with weld or bolt on relocation brackets.
nice, should have fun trying to break the 1 ton tie rod ends hahaha
I've bent two of the stock ones. Im TIRED of it lol
go slower over them rocks to hard of a landing hahaha
Eh, Rocks really arent my thing. I love me some nice slick flexy trails. I usually end up snagging the steering on a stump or something stupid. Did I mention my steering links will be 1.5" OD 1/4" wall DOM tubing?
I keep forgetting different terrain from here we have mountains and boulders and sand hahaha
Lol yea completely different terrain. Altho I would like to be closer to MOAB, Utah.
