I purcahsed a 91 with a 460, zf5 spd, bw1356 case and a sterling 10.25 in the rear not a bad base to start with.

suspension: running as some people would say "old school" parallel 4link with 08 f350 coils and using sch80 pipe
Diffs: Picked up a dana 60. also purchased 4.56 gears and a detroit for the rear a front locker will come soon
tires and wheels: 42" tsl super swampers on 17"allied beadlocks
we have pushed the front diff forwards about 4" giving me a wheelbase of 137":eek: and the steel for the brackets are 1/4" plate

And its called marshmellow cause well it white:p
ps sorry for the shitty pics and i only have a cam on my phone i will get better ones in the day light with another cam soon.

I would have thought that a smaller washer would sit right at the bottom coil. Kinda like a ttb type.
