Most peoples build thread on here get no action. Its a few pictures of their car then 3 months later some rims, another 4 months and some springs with stock struts. Nice to see someone actually doing something.

Thanks for the input everyone.

More rear suspension. The last pic showing lift- it will never get driven this high since that would be unsafe with the bags, but at 40psi unloaded it gets 12" of lift even with bag over axle

I've always wanted to do a Big Truck project like this...thanks for the inspiration! Very cool build.

Say, do those rear control arms and wishbone have urethane or rubber bushings in them?

I had wanted to build an unusual truck for a while and this one just fell in front of me, it just seemed so perfectly awkward i couldnt resist, lol.

We decided not to use rubber or urethane bushings due to the loads i plan to pull with it- we feel they may not like that kind of stress. Instead we went with replaceable brass bushing inserts. Hopefully these dont wear prematurely with being daily driven, but it is sonething i will just need to keep an eye on just in case.

Are you going to use some kind of pan-hard bar to reduce side to side movement? With that much travel it will be a bitch to get one worked out that doesn't shift the rear end over when it is at full hgt.

So far it looks tits, moving right along. Keep up the good work, and keep the updates coming too.

There is no need for a panhard the way its setup. With no play in the bushings and a very solid triangulated 3rd link there should be no movement side to side even under heavy loading. Everything will be braced to handle any stresses it may see.

Thats cool, I am not well versed in suspension geometry and that sort of thing. Was just curious, as stated before keep the updates coming.
