Wasn't absolutely horrible just extra work. Little spreading for the lowers and coilbucket gussets. Also needed some grinding down length of the heims. Had to find a press for the axles since I went the cut route and sparks from the chop saw put holes in The duct tape covering star and bearings and compromised the outer grease so had to clean it all . Little crap like that.

Can someone explain the necessity of having a "Fuel cell/Safe"? other than the fact that it is required for racing.

I want to be proactive in my safety and my passengers safety while offroading but how much safer is it?

If puncture is the main issue, you can essentially just wrap your fuel tank in an aluminum box.

Ground clearance? My links get in the way of the stock tank, that's why I had to ditch it.

Looks great man. I'm picking up all my parts up this weekend minus the bypasses which are still being built.

I understand it to be puncture but also containment in a roll over. If your truck is upside down for a while a stock fuel tank is going to leak everywhere while a fuel cell won't. Your stock fuel tank just has those straps to hold it to your frame. Once you build a mount for your fuel cell it isn't going anywhere.

However there are so many pending CARB changes that I've heard about that may make having one on a street truck difficult.

does anyone know for sure if the motor mounts coming off the frame for a 2.7 6lug is in the same spot as a 4.0?

It's crazy how prone the lower ball joints are too breaking.
One of these days I will have the money for a uniball lower.

X2^ on what he said.

Also, you can kinda pick and choose where you want to put it, and having it off near the back helps a ton with weight distribution.

My stock tank is going to be the next thing to go.

Actually thats the first i heard it being the bolts, and the other failures are mostly worn clapped out ball joints. I still check mine often and change them out at first sight of wear.

I have also seen a truck or two where the bolts broke. The bolts broke on mine too, but I think it was a result of the bolts being loose actually I'm pretty positive it was.
And Sam you're right yes most of them are due to clapped out ball joints, that's what my other breakages where from. But now I replace them at first sight of wear. Lesson learned on that one

Could someone take a few min. Of there time and help me out with a susp. Question. Mostly out of ignorance and for the sake of knowing.

Directed at the rear. At higher speed is a softer pack going to handle/ride better? And the shock just keeps it from bouncing? Or do you want a stiff pack?

I see tons of info on what setup to run just wondering what you are going after for a good off road ride.
