Our shop F350 project

Hey Guys how is it going? Well I guess I should introduce myself, I am Kris the "NEW" fabricator at Carrier Springs in Abbotsford BC Canada, we are a custom fab shop for lifts, leafs, springs, hangers, shackles, etc etc etc, shock mounts you name it, we also install all these items as well so if you guys have any questions feel free to shoot me a PM and I will do my best to share my knowledge around! The owner is pushing 35 years industry Experiance alone and well I am his fabricator so I am sure we can help!

Anyways thought I would share our shop truck with you guys and see what you all think! its ok!

Its a 1999 f350 Super Duty, fresh motor and trans 2 years ago, injectors upgraded, chipped by BD performance in Abbotsford BC, custom 4" exhaust front to back, custom down pipe.

14" FULL suspension lift (non blocks), custom hangers and shackles. Currently running a dual shock set up but I just designed and fabbed up our new prototype triple shock upper and lower mounts for the front. It has over load springs as well in the back and this one ton will easy hold 1.5-2 ton no problem!

our website is Custom Suspension - Custom Leaf Springs and you can reach me also at

[email protected]

My Name is Kris and I look forward to coming out to meet some of you and answer some of your questions!

with the 26/28" lift more picks to come of the truck my comp just messed up again LOL

Boy you would have to have a step ladder to get in & out of the shop rig.
That's a TALL lift. I had a yota with 7" lift and 17/40's and though that was tall.

That's some serious lift. Especially with no blocks. Pretty cool though, I'd just have to remember my stepladder to get in and out.

that looks like the most hacked up lift ive ever seen. no traction bars in the rear? there is no suspension connecting the truck to the axle other than the leaf springs!!! id imagine that truck would fall apart as soon as it turned!!

edit: there isnt even any shocks in the front!!!! lol

Sorry
The thing is Fugly
I appreciate the time and effort you put into it though

Way too much lift
If you want to clear large tires
You should have smaller lift with cut-out flares
Trucks look better when tires fill up wheel wells
instead of wheel wells clearing the tires

If you go to their website and find this same truck (go to the "Custom Work" link and it takes you to a photo gallery, believe it's page 2, maybe 3), I don't think it was finished at the time this photo was taken. There's another side shot where you see both driveshafts out and no shocks anywhere. Would be interesting if the OP has any more progress on this truck or not.

wonder if they will take it in the mud? isn't that why we lift our trucks?

personally if it was me i'd get some 54in boggers and head over to the local mud bog

And this is why we have to fight lift laws. Hey bubba lets just start arching those springs till they fit log skidder tares. We dont need no stinkin flex.
