    It couldn't be simpler. Everything bolts into factory locations with the exception of 4 axle tabs, then later if you wanted you could bolt the leafs back on. I can install and remove it in the time it takes someone to go get beer. :thumbsup:

    haha, I thought of that when I posted it. :p

    I'd love to, but that takes someone with $ who can leave their truck for 2-3 weeks since there aren't any smashed 2nd gen's in the salvage yards near me that I could get a rear section of frame from. It comes down to people that actually have the $ to buy the parts so I can be the lucky one who gets to assemble it all and watch it leave and wish I had one.

    My friend used to make a off road kit that bolted to the 6 spots the bed bolted to, but you remove the stock bed and his piece bolted on. It was all one piece and had the hoop for the top of the long travel shocks, the sides to mount glass to, and the cross member for the upper links. The lower links went to the leaf hangers, same as this kit. The stock gas tank could even be used. Forums weren't big back then, and it never got the exposure it should have.

    Wow looks nice!

    But I prefer the old fashioned boingy boingy of the leaf rather than the BAM BAM BAM of the coils!
