Or is it because it defies your logic of not being able to flex without this "solid axle" thing that you keep telling me that I'm supposed to have?

Its a stock BII leafs springs that i flipped around to move the axle back. Then i took another BII leaf spring and cut them and bolted to the frame. I didnt run a traction bar for a long time but do now. But even with no traction bar there wasnt to much axle wrap. I moved the leafs under the frame to which gives about 4 to 5 inches of lift. The tire in that pic on the other side is stuffed all the way up into the finder. It works good for a leaf spring setup but right now im in the process of linking the rear to get a more ridged setup. One problem i have is bent leafs from the axle pushing forward to compressing the leaf. I dont have any really good pics of it but here is some that i do have. Here is a link to the traction bar and the strap aroudn the axle is to limit the rear axle drop because i run a really really short rear drive line because of the doubler setup i built. http://forum.broncoii4x4.com/viewtop...ighlight=leafs

DR - I will bring my ramp to Hollister, we can have a tow rig ramp champ contest.
You have to remove the camper though, its cheating.

Petti,

Do you have some more pics of that front suspension or a build thread?
I'm interested to see how you linked that front axle.

I ain't kidding myself (proof is in the pic)... How about you??

That's pretty fawkin' scary if you're pulling around that (gotta be) 7000lb+ heap of yours (with the trailer) behind a tow rig that can actually put a tire up 35" on a rock (or a ramp, if you prefer) How do you keep that thing from oscillating in the wind?
