Rockwell - 49 Irok - 79 bronco build

I am building a 79 bronco with rockwells and 49 inch iroks, usa 6x6 20x14 two piece wheels, double triangulated 4 link and coil springs, not really sure how to post pics, I have tried but cant seem to make it work, I can post some pics if someone here can help me out. Lowers are 60 inches, kinda long but will have to wait and see, made from 2" OD .500 wall dom, and the uppers are 48 inches, 1.5 3/8 wall dom. Never done a 4 link but I have read alot on here and I hope that I have it close. 460 big block, nothin special, C6 auto, 205 t-case, and maybe a 203 doubler, I have the range box but not the adapter. Front and rear steer, full hydraulic double ended ram, it is a 2.5 x 1.5 x 8 inch stroke, I know I have left some stuff out, I will add as I go, please give any feedback and ask any questions, thanks.

You need to pony up for the red star to post pics. 20.00 a year and well worth it.

Pics?

sorry guys, I will get them up asap, I went out today to do some stuff but, it is outside, and I can only do little stuff till we get a little better weather, the lowers are really long, makes it look kinda funny, but I put the tires up to it today for the first time and it doesnt look that bad, I just want really good approach and departure angles, will try to post some pics.

yup, just got it, some pics, first is a mock up, and the second is my d/d with 6 inch suspension, and 35 boggers, with the new iroks to show size. How do I get full size pics to show up?

whats with the link tower? bolt on like many of the rockwell's I've seen I guess. seems like it would be a little underbuilt considering the massive components youre using.

For some reason I think where the link tower makes that L bend, seems like a weak point...and I like the big pics--better detail! YOu can post big pics with red star by the way.

the big pics are good, I am not done with the tower yet, I will get a brace in there and then get some new pics, the tower is made from 1/2 inch plate, I hope its enough, if not I will rebuild it, maybe from tube, any constructive criticism is welcomed, anyone else?

What do you guys think of the heims? and the lower link brackets? the lower link brackets are made from 1/4 inch plate, and the heims are from Rock Krawler, not very big, will go to evolution machine heims when I get the extra cash, these are 1 inch shank and 14 mil. bolts.
