Well, if you haven't seen it yet, this is my new truck. I wish it was the lifted one... I thought mine was big[27] till I pulled up beside this orange one. Mine is the little silver one.[15] [15] [15] http://i56.photobucket.com/albums/g175/badasstruck_99/chris2143.jpg

I don't see a difference between the unsafe idea of using lift blocks on the front of a leaf spring truck and those blocks under the coil springs in this truck.

yea, i was just going to say that those coil bucket don't look to safe.


And what is that extra fender or flair thing on the back tire?

big difference... its a link suspension so the links will do the job of holding the axle in place and not allow for any axlewrap which might spit the blocks out. It's not like leafs with a block where all thats holding the axle in place is some huge ubolts. Also those buckets aren't cast like most leaf spring lift blocks.






Nice truck you got Chris:cool:

That truck is on the cover of Novembers' issue of DieselPower mag. It competed in, and won fastest speed in the Dodge category and the show&shine portion of the August Blackout at the Castrol Raceway in Edmonton. It's owned by Chad Accettura and Seija Lawkkanen, boasts 500hp on 44's and was built by North American Diesel Power out of Edmonton....
A little info for ya...:p

btw; I think that little fender on the back tires is for keeping all the burning rubber off the nice paint job when they take it to shows and do burnout contests. There's a couple of pics in this mag of that truck smoking out the raceway, thats my best guess!

The lifted Dodge, I saw in Powell River. A young guy built the whole suspension. The truck had been on a few 4x4 magazines.

That steering could be better set up, but I've certainly seen worse. I'm wondering why he put those huge, heavy spacers on the axle? Why not just drop the upper mounts. It would save a lot of unsprung weight. Very perrty paint though. Must cry at every scratch.

Yup, I like Kingpins and raised crossover arms myself...

Makes for a nice clean look.

that blue and orange dodge was in last months diesel performance mag.
plus I saw him in edmonton at the nadp event up there. That truck does like a 13s 1/4 mile, it was one helluva truck
