evilram, It may look high but I will bet it has a lower CG than it would if it had 60s under it. I have an overall cab/exo hieght of 7-7 but my CG is less than 36 inches and my width is 88 inches. How does yours measure up?
Before the tare down it sat at 7'5" to top of cab, Im hopin it doesnt change much. Not sure what the final width will be.

Not sure maybe an atlas, 203/205, box-for-rocks kit, not sure yet, Ill still run my np241 till it granades though. But ya I cant wait to see how she runs with the setup its got now, the nv4500 gonna give me a ton of options. Right now as it sits in 1st gear and 4lo, my crawler ratio is 115.89.1 Before I was somewhere around 84.15.1

what kind of an idiot would do that?

And to the OP, no offense was meant in my post. I like what you're doing with the truck. Just wondering on final measurements. Maybe I just have axle an envy and wish the Rockwell brothers would be my friends too...

Few of the parts.
Forget what the coupling was for but its got the same 4 bolt flange as a Rockwell, I think its even a little bigger. Just gotta track down some yoke ends for the driveline sides, some more square tube and Ill have a couple drivelines done.



Ordered 12 new wheel studs and lug nuts from Ouversons, pounded those in and reversed the stock RH thead ones too, all ready for my new wheels now.



Picked up a second single chamber Flowmaster too, now I can finally run dual single chambers w/ an X-pipe inbetween those and soon to be some headers.

You know it, just for you ya old hag
kyky777 brought the first wheel by for test fitting today Pictures dont do these wheels justice, kyky did a killer job!!!

Also had to flip my hubs and all my wheel studs back around for the way the wheels have to be setup. Had to grind the back of the studs on the front hubs so they would clear the spindle bolts also.

Figured Id repost the last post only because the plans changed on the wheels and we changed the back space to 4" and flipped the hubs back around to give it a little wider stance and alot more clearance for the triangulated lower links.
New stance, wheels are done and bolted on!!



Ride height as it sits now with the rear sittin on its own weight. Still gonna lose the body lift so its got another 3" to come down.

Gettin tight!! Gonna have to make a couple new crossmembers and cut the original out to gain a few inchs, keepin it as low as I can without having it sittin on the bumpstops.

Gettin closer, should be going to pick up some 1 1/4 heims and some 2.5x.500 wall DOM soon too.
