Danooooo. this truck has always been my fucking favorite expo. when it was spring under 64s even. your truck has always been the raddest fucking expo ive ever seen (thats not a stupid center mount million dollar truck, that is of course. hah)
 
post more pics of the rear/interior when it had the 64s!
i never saw many pics of it before you deezoed the entire truck off from the front seats back. now its just like every other fucking full kill/linked to the moon and back, from the front seats - back. haha

I’ll see what I can find. I might have some old ass pics on my FB I can save cause we chopped the frame like 9-10 years ago lol.
 
Here’s some really oldies, don’t have many.
Had custom deaver 62” pack and a 12” shackle. Strapped at 19, it did pretty decent.

bump!! Hows this thing coming?
She just needs a prep and it’s ready for the season. Changing up the rear springs to a AGM big coil setup to run a 20” lower spring. Adding a rear seat set up and a rear bumper. Other than that she’s done until maybe a blower down the road a little bit.

awesome! get it ready and bring it to Cinders with us!
 
I think it's funny that everyone was all about the low ride height for a while and now realizing that it sets the truck in the bump zone of the bypass and there's no bump travel. Looks so good with the new ride height, in my opinion

I agree, I didn’t necessarily like the way it sat. I mean I like the low center of gravity and it’s resistance to sway but it packed occasionally and it just wasn’t enough spring to have the rebound dampening be efficient at all. I trust the rear handling a lot more now. I can get over the taller ride height if performance is better!
