Yeah we used that for the bed too. It was the easiest way to transport them. We just loaded them on the back and drove a couple hundred feet down the road to where im storing all my parts. plus it was a cool photo op

I ordered the a arms and brake kit earlier this week. im gonna wait till i have everything else mocked up and take some measurements to figure out if i want the stock or two inch dropped spindles. Im still waiting on the crossmember. Id like it to come soon but i kinda hope it gets here after all my finals are done so im not distracted by wanting to work on the truck

The MII suspension will be pretty low even with stock spindles. Also note that the springs will settle an inch or so after 100 miles of driving.

Im going to take measurements and get the chassis sitting at ride height after i get everything in to see if the two in drop is too low. Im pretty sure it will but id like to make sure before i buy something and im not happy with it. Thanks for the input!

Local Buddy of mine sold this truck, but it was MII with 2" drop spindles.
It looked cool, but He said the bumper would drag on some bumps here and there.
edit:Oh yeah..I think the front wheels were 14" if I recall.

Good thing that you have the control arms early. You can set them next to your truck and imagine an IFS while you're home for the Christmas holidays!!

Well... If your school has a decent semester break, maybe you'll get the crossmember in for the second half of your break!!
Merry Christmas !!

Well see that's the thing. I only have two weeks off. So if they get it here in two weeks like they said, which I doubt because they said that they're sending out orders from 8 weeks ago right now, then I'll get it the last weekend before school starts again.
