    Go big or go home, right?:eek:

    Another BS question. Is it worth the effort to link the rear or just stick to leaf packs? I don't see very many trucks with linked rears so I'm curious.:confused:

    It depends on the use. You can get by with just leafs.

    Hahahhahahaha! No. You are mistaken. He'd never let that go. I get it in his will though :D







    But that assumes I out live him, which as history has shown, I doubt that will be the case.

    What are you planning on doing with it? Links are superior over leafs by a long shot. Leafs are good for DD unless a link setup is done correctly with the right valving. Leafs don't flex as good and are easily destroyed on the trail.

    Naw. I can drive it whenever I want, but I have to have reason to hahaha Once he gets his new house and DD it'll be easier if I wanted.

    I already said I wasn't buying my cousin's Ranger. Even if I offered him 100 grand for it, he'd say no.

    Cheers.
