Thanks! Erik B deserves credit for this design. I saw his on the internet and decided to try something similar.
I thought they had a familiar look, nice job on the shackles also. I sort of copied Erik's spring hanger design also!!!! <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/kewl.gif" alt="" />

I totally agree that lift is overrated. I don't run any lift with my 32x11.50s and wouldn't run much more than an inch for 33x12.50s.

You guys have a point; what kind of post is this without flex pictures? I have failed you all as a 4x4wire member.

I'll try to get some articulation pictures this weekend. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/kewl.gif" alt="" />

Took it to an elementary school today to flex her a bit. This wasn't tall enough to completely stuff the tires or get one of four off the ground. As you can see, the rear works the most when the IFS is trying to flex. This demonstrates the obvious limitation of IFS.

Love the pictures Bandit. Gotta hijack-interrupt the articulation shots and ask....where in the hell did you get your door mirrors?? They aint stock, but dont look like the garbage aftermarket cheapies either. The POS mirrors I used on our 4Runner give that nice distorted image and cant be adjusted worth a chit. I'm really starting to hate them and am looking for good replacements without spending the hardearned on OEM replacements.

Pictures are deceiving bud. Those ARE the cheap crap aftermarket ones. They work alright, I just need to tighten the passenger side so it stays adjusted. I got 'em at AutoZone. I would like to have some larger ones though; visibility in this truck isn't the best. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif" alt="" />

Looks great Bandit! I've just gotta remember envy is bad. It's added to my to do list. Now I just have to find someone to weld for me. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/lol.gif" alt="" />

Do you have the ball joint spacers up front?
