I've got an autofab bent beam kit that will be for sale here shortly if you're interested.

As for the GMR stuff - it's my buddies truck they prototyped that on and it is NICE stuff. If you have any questions on it use the contact link and Jason (GMR owner) can help you.

I won't be able to sell a full kit, but I could put together a set of beams for ya. This whole system would have to be set up on the truck. I literally did my alignment based on where the pivot poi t of the beam was. If I had to do it over again I'd probably use a Dana44 beam end instead of king pins. Matter of fact I'll likely redo them using d44 ends. But for now I otta get te dang thing running.

And X2 on the GMR stuff if ya want the simplicity of a kit.

Why did you decide on 1 piece beam/radius arms, any real benefit to that other than simplicity?

Even though you're not in the coldest climate, where are you having your heater pull air from since you blocked off the factory openings? (hope I didn't miss something you already answered)

Plan on selling the suspension in any type of "kit" form? Would really like to go this route with my 78 CCSB. Talked with John at Autofab, I must be too dumb to figure out GMR's website (or it doesn't work right) and like the travel and rigidity of what you're doing. Looking at options, I can't fab like you and Chasetruck.
