I'm not fond of big lifts...but you have a very nice looking truck. Any pictures of the suspension? I'm curious as to how safe (if at all) it is.

You drive it on the street?

Thanks alot for all of the comments on the truck!

Actually, the truck is my daily driver. It is the only vehicle I own so it goes everywhere. As for legallity issues, the only law we have in Colorado is the headlight height. I only run the driving lights on the bottom at night and I have had many cops tell me that works fine. There are several other big trucks around here that don't even do that and have no problem with the law.

I actually did not design the steering. It is a switchback system that requires you to flip the bottom drag link on the stock steering system. When I first got it back, the steering system worked terribly. However, I turned the Panyard bar around and ran it parallel to the bottom switchback and the thing handles like a stock truck! I have done some wheeling with it and it stood up to the challenge pretty easily!

Are you doing a brake upgrade after the larger wheels go on? Doesn't seem safe to be running that size components with stock axles and brakes...
