My 4-Link Build, but other stuff too!

started with chevy springs, double shackles, 12 inch rancho shocks, and 2 inch blocks.

Going to a dual triangulated 4 link with:
16 inch 2.0 Fox air shocks
4 Ballistic Fabrication flex joints with welded on studs
4 King's Off Road Enterprise (K.O.R.E.) flex joints
Link mounts from Ballistic Fabrication and Blue Torch
shock tabs from Adam Ant Fab, AA-Fab
2 inch .250 tubing for links
1.75 .120 hrew tubing for truss and shock mount.

Doing all of the work at Locktup's house. Thanx Jason!

don't know about the front. i have the extra tubing for the links. but i don't have the other $800 in shocks and brackets. I'll run it this way for awhile and see. it will be at the Hammers for the Tin Benders clean-up Jambo.

Looks ok to me, to each there own. You got a little further up the ramp, but the traction will be the biggest advantage. What did you end up with for vertical seperation, link angles and any closer pics of your xmemeber for the lowers?
