Here's a few.











The pics are out of order and some are old. Its a 93 ranger full cage, giant 64 kit out back with FOA 18x2.4" shocks. Right now we are waiting on the beams from Dave over at threat motorsports. D44 boxed beams equal length setup. The front will have a track with of around 86". I can't remember what the rear is off the top of my head. SAW 14x2.5" dual rate coilovers for the front.

I will get some more pics of it in the next day or two.

For the front we are running Equal lenght beams with D44 Beam ends. The rear is a 64" Leaf spring setup. Right now the rear pulls 19" of travel. the front should pull around 22". There are a lot for different setups you can do with, depending on your budget and what you are looking to get out of your truck performance wise. Links are nice and i'd love to run them, but they are a lot of $$$. That's why we ran the 64 kit. they don't call it the link killer kit for nothing

NICE I think that would be easier to set up than a 4 link. people have told me that unless the 4 link is done right and set up correctly it probably would perform worse than a good leaf set. i havent tried yet, but i think im almost there to tackle the rear....

you are correct. if you do set up a 4 link right its a complete waste of time and money! If you have any doubts on being able to set one up correctly then just go with the leafs. There are other deaver packs you can use. F31 (16" travel) and the G50 (19" of travel) pack.
