Well I guess if you can't move it that should be a pretty good indication. Hopefully it won't go moving around on you with side forces.

Wow! I don't have internet for a couple months and look what I miss... the coolest thread since I can remember! That thing looks awesome, Shane! I cut the front-end off mine a few weeks ago and plan to tube it in the next couple months. I am also going to tube the back, extend the wheelbase 10", and add 6" to the rear frame (for the shackle hangers). But, until I get to do mine, at least I have something to drool over.

Keep up the good work! ~Steve

If you meant this forum, then yeah... but DSI's is close behind.

If you meant on PBB as a whole, he's not even close. The 6x6buildup was over 20K views easily.

At Shane's pace, he should be WAY done before 20K

Thats what marlon was saying....Im sure we can work something out

Here are a few shots of tonights work.....Got the axles squared to the vehicle and to them selves.........That was a huge chore!!!

Adjusted the rear links while doing then, then built the front links and installed a new crossmember at the front of the Tcase... Thought this would be fully hung tonight, but worked most of the night by myself...

Well here are a few shots of tonights work...

Placed another bar in for support on the bed, Made shock hoops for the coil overs, mounted the coil overs, tested the suspension......Had to move the coil overs cause they hit the tires.........And now this is what we have...
