07-29-2007, 12:24 PM
Last Night i started to Lift and Sas my truck, which is a 92 GMC Sonoma with a 4.3L V6 (non-vortec :( ) its being lifting 8-9"s with 36" TSL Swampers, swapping in 1979 Ford F150 Axles, Dana 44 up front, and a 9" Rear (posi), and soon to have 4.88's or 5.29 Gears. Right now i got the rear end set in place and bolted in and the pos IFS cut out.

prolly gonna flex pretty good 
looks pretty good
on your front radius arms/links you should have made them arc up and sit closer to the frame for more ground clearance but it should do alright the way it is now.
i appreciate the build up

nice build man, Finally some non BS builds on this site,,,, That truck will work well. Keep up the good work!
08-01-2007, 01:47 AM

hey, flat deck the back half... bad ass.
08-01-2007, 04:20 PM
Thanks for the comments, and i dont have the funds at the moment to flatdeck it or custom box or anything, so just the regular box is going back on for now.

08-14-2007, 08:18 PM
So I showed Jim the pics of his old truck... I believe he called it "different"...hehe. I think he secretly likes it though, he's made me bring up this page two or three times now... even showed Brian, who thinks its pretty sweet too!
