So what you guys think? These are only 33's, I have some 38" tslxs's with MT's waiting to be put on. No luck getting it in the garage with the windshield up!<IMG width=640 height=480 SRC="http://www.pirate4x4.com/ubb/uploads/Dsc00011.jpg"> <IMG width=640 height=480 SRC="http://www.pirate4x4.com/ubb/uploads/Dsc00012.jpg">

So are you going to have to chop up those Perdy rear fenders to fit those 38's?

Looks good

Yes, 2.5" over stock con-fer shackles on the way, and I have spector's cut out fender flares for the rear. I will have to turn my head and let the wife cut the rear; no rust to cut out, no carnage, just cutting up perfect rear fenders. <IMG SRC="smilies/crybaby2.gif" border="0">

hey nolan! did you have any problems with the front of the frame running these springs? my buddy simon (simple) ran some pretty tall front springs (under axle) and after wheeling a lot for about 1.5 years his frame showed some cracks and the rivets were coming loose. he did have the hole cut in the front cross mamber for his PS conversion and i know that did not help any.
just asking.

Funny you say that! Say Matt, if you have not boxed in the passenger side box of the front of the frame you might want to think about it!

It was not the spring it was the 3" over stock shackle that had so much leverage on that part of the frame. Tore it right off!

Matt, you look like you are going to get away without having to use the longer shackles in the front.

Did you use the other leafs or did you install them with the bottom two out like I had them?

If you have not ordered you r shocks yet, I have 2 of my 9012's for sale, they were too long for the rear of my cruiser,

Email me.

Nice lookin truck. But are you really gonna be able to get 38's under that truck without a SOA? Going to be a TIGHT fit at best.

BTW - what lift are those?

Those are my old springs, here are some shots with the 38's...it is actually 3" shorter now with the SOA than with the old SUA.
