Been on the trails a few times now with no breakage. Things work well. Happy with the results too.

No pics from the trail just yet. Having too much fun to stop for pics, sorry!

A shot from the driveway last night though.

very nice... do you still have the stock rear springs??? if so, look into replacing them with the 63" chevy springs. Real common mod and worth every penny (and minute of fab)

Not only will you get more flex, but you can get rid of those pesky lift blocks :D

Rear are sort of stock... I pulled overloads and added a couple more stock leafs to the pack. I thought about 63's but I also have a set of 3rd gen rears that are similar in length to the Chevys. Only problem is that when I put the flatbed on I cut the rear frame down. Now, to add longer springs I have to add material back onto the end of the rails. Because if I go with longer springs I want to stretch it a bit instead of narrowing the wheelbase.

Ok. His tires don't stick out enough to really get a bite, but this wasn't any kind of problem at all. :grin:
