Default 73 1210

I bought this from Chad last fall and havn't had nearly enough time or money to work on it. So far I have swapped in a Chevy Dana 44 using 6" Chevy front leafs and on inch longer shackles. I am usinga 4" lift steering arm and a custom draglink with the Chevy and IH tie rod ends. I am will also be able to use the stock Chevy swaybar with very little work. For the rear I am working on removing the stock 3" block and going to add a 5" and that will level the truck. Future plans call for a Dana 60 and a cummins/nv4500 swap. I will update it as I go.

What size tires are you running? I have a similiar truck and was thinking the 6" lift was going to raise it more. Could be that you are running bigger rims and it makes it look decieving.

Btw truck looks great! If it had been on the east coast, I would have been all over it!

I am running 285/75-16 maxxis bighornns. The truck started life as a 2wd so that might be part of it. I have not done anything with the rear yet.
