I didn't have anywhere to keep the truck at first, but I came up with an arrangement. I went from getting shit talked on for selling it to getting shit talked on for keeping it. Can't win no matter what.

Gonna be changing a lot in the coming months.

Cant wait to see the changes mac.

So those 3.0 sway a ways I bought might be some internal bypass threaded body shocks from the 90s. We havnt cracked them open yet so we dont know forsure.

Yet I cant find much information on these kinds of shocks. If anyone has any information that'd help it would be greatly appreciated.

Who did you hear that from? Hit up oorracing, he's the go to guy around here for SAW info, parts, service, and advice. He has some 4.0 internal bypass coilovers he's rebuilding, I checked them out when I was at his place getting my bypasses rebuilt.

The first truck got rolled in 6 months, I didn't want to chance seeing pics of this truck the same way. Especially since I know the guy who was gonna buy it.

Definitely looking forward to it being caged. Deciding exactly how stupid I want to get with the rebuild. Leaving the whole frame, sorry Kevin. Maybe a notch for more bump travel if it's needed?

If your keeping your 64s you can absolutely gain 2"+ up travel with a c notch, that's what I'm doing on Darren's truck,

Is Ryan doing your cage? I need to put a different seat in your passenger side so I can actually ride in it!!!

What about ditching the the leaf pack and doing springs? Like in the front. I know it will take a lot of fab work. But would it work?

It would be a long process. I'm going to have a new DD so money and time aren't an issue. I can save up for a while and then do the install. The truck can sit up for a while.
