1990 nissan hardbody sas

hi my name is dylan and i have a 1990 nissan hardbody. so far i have bobed the bed and cut 6 inches out for a better decent angle without smaking my bumper. i have cut all the IFS off and have made a custom leafspring hanger. the axle is hanging and the front of my truck is massive because i have not got my rear springs yet. but this is it.

Why so tall? With that short of wheelbase, and that much lift, anything off-camber is going to suck.

Its been awhile sence I've posted. The nissan now has a dana 60 close knuckle and a dana 60 semi floter in the rear. The rear frame has been choped off and rebuilt with 2x6 box tubing with a fuel cell tucked up inbetween the rails. It also has full hydro steer. These pictures are with my bosses 38s. I haven't picked up any of my own yet. I'm haven't trouble finding 16.5 tires that arnt militarys. . I haven't got any pictures of the new rear frame yet buti do have pictures of the new front end. I did duel head lights from an 86 chevy with projectors and primed the truck for a fresh coat of paint. I'm stating to regeret the "face lift" tho. Let me know what you guys think. Never mind the dually tires

the bob looks good, you should do something about these rear shackles before you do any more body work, they look at least a foot long with no lateral brace

Why a passenger drop axle? I guess you don't plan on using 4 wheel drive?

The axle ii used to have under it was passenger side and my truck. Is really driver side drop so when I got 3/4 ton axles I got a drivers side drop so I wouldn't have to run a divorced transfor. And what do you mean lateral bracing?

weld something in between them and/or shorten them. A shackle that long applies a huge amount of torque to everything

I will be sure to do that. They were temporary because I don't have rear lift springs. But I think they will be there for quite some time. Thank you for the info
