This thread is giving me some serious wood.

Here is mine, tow rig. Still have a lot of odds and ends to take care of, I try to do take care of at least one thing each weekend, I'll eventually gut the interior and get the body painted a charcoal color.



Pictures are old, engine compartment has been cleaned up.

So, you have the ram acting as both the assist, and the tie rod between the knuckles? That is a nifty setup! Very clean!

Yep, got the idea from Jason (Willyswanter) back when he had the Dana 60 in his truck.

Here's my old dually tow rig that was totalled by a Semi that ran a red light. I bought it back from the insurance company for $3K, pulled the frame and threw a flat bed on it. I used it as a parts hauler and occasional wheeler on 36" tsl's

This fall I cut 36" off the back, threw on a 30 gallon 2012 Isuzu truck side mount tank that I mounted behind the axle and moved the rear axle forward 37". It sits at 6' 9" on 39.5's. This a temporary. I hope to get started on the rebuild after my other projects get on the road. Works fine for trail rides but would suck major hind end for a hardcore trail with the IFS.






And a couple on the trail

Thanks!

I should have said it in my first post. I built an SAS for this truck but I'm putting it under my Tahoe instead. This truck will be getting some fun goodies when the Tahoe and my Jeep are on the road. I'll start a thread when I start cutting.

Mine

Heres mine. 88 cab on 87 frame with 454/400/205, 60/14b with 4.56 detriot and spool in the front rolling on 39.5 Iroks. It has a wishbone 3 link in the rear with coil springs and 4" or more springs in front. I still need to trim the front finders, finish the bed/cage. Down the road I plan on boatsiding it, adding cross over steering, and a doubler. And maybe some 42's or bigger.

Not a true crew cab, but it has a little more space inside.
