Any Center Pivot Front Suspension Builds?

Hi all,
I recently bought a '12, and I'm getting the itch to hack up a perfectly nice truck. I built my Ranger a while ago, so if I do this one, naturally I need to take it a step further. I've searched all over looking for some center pivot front suspension pictures, but haven't come up with anything. After crawling under the truck, it seems feasible. If anyone can point me in the right direction I would appreciate it. Thanks.

I doubt you will find any center pivot guys here. You will find a few of them over at Dezertrangers.com You looking to attach a prebuilt bulkhead or build your own?

OK thanks, I'll check that out. It would likely be custom, but it depends what I come up with.

I am not sure who all builds full bulkheads premade other then The GMR has/had one. I know BMS has made them in the past. Brenthal makes one as well but i have read nothing but horror stories about brenthal products. If I had the money I would lean towards The GMR bulkhead looks pretty freaking legit. If I didnt attempt to build one myself. But not sure if Jason is still building them or not since he has somewhat backed out of the offroad scene and went to touring cars. May check out wicked creations and Solo motorsports they may have something as well.

Why would you center link a brand new truck? all you will end up with is the cab, motor and a small part of the frame from the original truck. Why waste all that money? just go get a cab and motor and save your self $30k.

That's not as fun as watching someone chop up an expensive truck.

Exactly. In all seriousness though, I just want to see what some people have done. It's not likely I'll do it for the reasons mentioned, but I have a very tough time keeping any of my vehicles stock.
