    This is a buddy's truck. He was running a cheap adapter spacer so he could run his f150 rims. It was a good excuse to put a 9" under it. It was funny to watch him land a stepup and dig in as the tire rolls by.

    J&D long travel front w/ fabtech spindles 10" dual rate springs with king 2.5 coilovers, Allpro 50T baja pack in rear with 16in king 2.5" resi, ebay turbo, mapecu3, self tuned, electric fan, 456 gears, 04 tundra axle factory lsd, PRP race seats with 4 point race harness
    56 sounds right for a 9" through the frame so the pack doesn't buckle when it flattens out.

    I'm running the 50t with 12" shackle over frame at 52.5. Its a nice pack. You may need to pull a leaf if you sit too high. I have about 9" to 10" of up travel. 3 years old and still doesn't sag.
    F55 is more for 5 lugs or if you have no weight in the rear. Great pack if you are sitting low.

    The whole truck is pretty simple. Its something he threw together while he builds his bigger project. The 5.3 make it pretty fun to rip in.

    Should I run the 50t with 9" through the frame or just buy 12" shackles and move it to the correct spot

    Did he find the tire? I was driving my boss's dually down the freeway and got passed two tires. Thinking it was odd I looked in the rear view and realized they were mine! They went about a mile, and I felt really lucky they didn't hit any other cars.

    Ya, Michigan sand is very soft. It just bounced a few times rolled by and dug in.

    I broke a hub on my quad taking off on a big step up. It ended up going half way across the track and almost hit a injured rider on the ground. Someone had to stop it so it wouldn't hit him. Kinda felt bad.

    first jump below. Broken spacer was attempt 2.
