Yeah, I'll agree on it being a Wagoneer d44, probably from the early 1980s. It looks exactly like what I have in my basement.

Hillclimber I have some questions: What leaf springs are you using? What did you do to the rear of the truck? Did you use a SYE? What gears? Are you using stock wagoneer steering?

Damn, those springs are low to the ground in front. :/ Are the front bumpstops going to stop the shocks from bottoming out in hard landing situations? That looks really close on the shock length. Travel looks to be kick-ass, but man, the dynamic axle height compared to the shock length looks a bit close. Just commenting on the pics, obviously I haven't been there to see first hand.

No clearence issues, the axle is forward of the pan.
I dont have bumpstops, but its fine, there is lots of travel in there. (and big springs)
And yes the shocks are pretty long, but im looking for droop, and futer lifts, the 9000x are expensive shocks, and i dont want to buy them twice.

Looks good but gosh I would be worried about coming off a rock with a front tire and dragging a shackle. How much clearance underneath those is there?

Well fuckin duh.

I don't like the shackle location at all. Looks like it should go through the frame like a Toyota, and work the lift in from a drop spring hanger. I don't know if that's possible for a Nissan, but for your future upgrades that's the first step I'd take.

It looks good though, I like to see different rigs getting the treatment.

I don't get it. Why do a spring under with a long/low shackle? Do a spring over, and move the shackle up.

Crusted...er...Rusted, It's definitely possible to go through the frame with the shackle, though it's a bit tricky becuase the frame is curving in there

Here's mine...



I'm also SUA...That keeps it low enough to still fit in the garage. Crawler gears and a pair of ARB's help equalize the lack of clearance.

Ok, finally tested out the flex, this is the best I could do. Took a couple of tries to climb that wet rock with muddy tires.
