Checking In

Not new to the site but new to posting. I search here often to get ideas and now that I have slowly started my build I will be posting more.

I am Building a 78 Ramcharger on the frame of a 94 Dodge 2500 2X4 CTD NV4500. Shortened the WB to 106" and will be swaping out the NV4500 with a 47RH / NP241. Up front I have a Ford HP60 to go in and I am thinking about double triangulated 4 link with air springs out back and Radius arms with air springs up front.

Looking forward to getting your input for my build.

Guvna Hey peoples

I'm from Australia, I have a 80 Series Landcruiser with a 1HZ that I turbo'd running a 3in exhaust without mufflers it has a small lift and is pretty well stock standard otherwise, Before it I had a red 2005 TJ renegade that again had a small lift and 33in tyres and I loved it but I got tired of just emptying every pocket to keep my daily on the road so I sold it to buy the 80. Before the red Jeep I had a 2001 model that was black with half doors and the soft top it had a few basic mods lift etc.

found the site looking for Info on 3 and 4 link suspensions so i thought Id join.

Is there a Technical section where in depth tech yarns are kept?

Cheers Guvna.

The daughter wants my '86 K20 burb.

Hello all,

I'm just cruising the web looking at what's been done on a low budget. My daughter just turned 17 and has decided that she want's the beast as a daily driver. I bought an 1986 K20 Suburban 6.2l diesel with banks sidewinder on Fleabay about 7 years ago and it has sat in the driveway ever since.

The engine has low miles (for a diesel) and the truck is in good shape, but like I said she's been sitting a long time. The kid wants to lift it slightly and run taller tires. Nothing outrageous just yet, no rock crawling like you animals. Azusa OHV is the most extreme off-road it will see for a while. I think she just wants to show up the boys in the area.

Looking for a mild lift to run 35"-38" tires, safely and cheaply. I know those two don't go together, but you guys get my point.

Thanks for the add, and thanks in advance for tolerating my newbie questions.
