Default Re: suburban/ranger what i have done and what i am doing

well got some more work done tonight lower link mounts are in and had to shorten the lower links would of pushed my axle to far forward and wouldnot of had the pinion angle that i wanted and not the control that i wanted. so now from on the factory bump stops (witch i will not be keeping) to as high as my highlift will go no more then 2 degrees of pinion movement from ride hight.
pic 1 links on the factory bumpstops all the way down
pic 2 as high as my highlift will reach (60in highlift)
pics 3 and 4 pics of the links
pic 5 i know that it don't look like it (and its a crappy pic) but the link is not touching the frame there and on the factory bump stops

I was looking at your pictures and I think you should cut your bottom two inches off your frame at an angle and beef the top. You will get better compression and keep the arms out of the frame.

Are you going to use board for the bed like I did? If you do I suggest a good sealant. I stained mine but still want to seal in. Hurry up and get her done can't wait to see it with a flat bed instead of the 80's rollbar crap.

On the bed you should cut those horizontal post and run them vertical with upside down angle. For support for the boards like I did. no need to wast the spendy 3x3" stuff. I basically built a frame under nieth.

pic1 the bed with boards in it

I like how your bed came out. Clean up that frame and paint it before you put it on. The flex looks good.
