    I'm guessing it's the original rack, but I couldn't tell you. I'll take a look at it in a bit and report back. It's wishful thinking, but it'd be nice to only have to do the guide and bushings.

    Well, that sucks. I had high hopes for it. Maybe it just needs refined. :thumbsup:

    I really think the bucking is due to the wheelbase of these trucks and the 'pitch' between seams on the concrete roads here.

    Mine does the same thing described. The worst section of road that I've noticed so far is on 287 between Broomfield and Louisville. It bucks like crazy if you're move by with the traffic.

    That said, I'm not surprised at all if that effect is worsened with a swingout or a winch. Anything that cantilevers weight outboard of the wheels is gonna exacerbate that.

    That's my problem exactly.
    1/4 steel bumper & winch on the front - 3/16 steel bumper, swingout, tire, co2 on the back. It's like a gawt damn teeter-totter.

    I think I realized the problem:

    You guys are far too concerned with how your truck rides on the way to the mall, when you should be more concerned with how it rides on the trail. :D

    Whole bunch of dirt and rocks laid out topographically conforming to a preset but infinitely variable wire mesh for small scale terrain definition. You probably wouldn't be interested... :p

    Might as well, the build is kind of down to maintenance at this point. I'll prolly start posting summer wheeling pics in here.

    You know I was just thinking how nice it was popping into your thread and being able to find useful information very quickly earlier today and now all the bs. Sorry I may have brought this upon you...

    I blame sound of music Brett. :D
    Nothing but respect for the guy though.
    I doubt this thread will descend too far into anarchy.

    No anarchy here just thoughtful discussion. Now if a third genner found themselves in this neck of the woods we might have some anarchy.

    I have no problem with bs in my thread :D

    I honestly feel that the majority of my build is complete at this point, maybe tire and wheel alterations, maybe the addition of a front locker, who knows. I would like to box in my frame, I am lacking help in removing the bed. I might be able to rig up something to pull it with my hoist.
    For the most part, I'm gonna wheel it as is this summer and see how all the new OEM components in the front hold up to the stress of the "average build" :cool:
