Looks good man. What size tires did you run?

Looks about the same height as mine was. I need to switch out my front springs because the 52's I ran are way shot. They are reverse arched. This truck has about a 3" lift. It has 2" block in the back as it sits. Im interested in how you mounted your hydro ram. Ive been thinking about buying the DIY dif cover that has a ram mount, but its over 200.00 bucks........

Well I need to fix a few things like my tie rod is just waiting to get smashed because its in the front. I do have the high steer set up but i need to go to 52's in the front. right now i am running stock length springs.
The Ram is mounted to the axle via CNC brackets and the stock tie rod location. from your picture its the same place just the bracket is moved closer to the pumpkin housing

the tires are some used Parnelli Jone Dirt Grip tires 37.12.50 on some 16.5 rims

your Front bumper rocks !

Military trucks like mine have a hitch on the frame and we had to notch the flip to clear the hitch

We have a buddy who taps all out Steering Boxes.... He's in Fremont and would definitely hook you up on taping a box if you need it.... I think he charges about 50 bucks but he takes the whole box apart and goes through it to ensure there are no preexisting problems.

brace the frame up front while your doing all that work. Brace it at the steering boxe and brace it as much as you can where the frame goes up after the firewall.
