Hey guys I have been slowly building my excursion. It started out as a 10" lift on 38s then I bought 16" springs and some rockwell axles, but somebody stole the springs from me soo now it is getting 4 linked. I am waiting on hiem joints to come in thats why there is just bars where the springs should be cause I cant put the link bars in with out the joints. My buddy Bryan is doing all the fab work. I cant weld if my life depended on it. It has 44's on it now, but they look to small. I want to run 53" tractor tires. Let me know what you think.

I am actually thinking about running air bags instead of the coil springs. It would be pretty sweet.

Notice that I said slowly building and not done yet.The truck is far from done. Also said the springs will be were the bars are. I think about 20 people have said " its gonna ride pretty stiff like that". Already had it on 38's its the picture in my sig. And what is gonna cause drive line vibrations? The military axles that are very well built? There are plenty of guys in Florida running these axles on the street because it is actually legal there. The twin transfer cases so the drive shat angles arent bad? Or is it the well built 4 link and coil springs that will ride way better than any leaf spring truck? This is not my dd. Just a fun toy to play with. I hope yall are just joking. I put it on this forum cause I figured if any one would apreciate it as much as I do it would be some other powerstroke owners. Thanks to the 2 people who actually like the truck.

In some ways we are kidding. How many inchs will it be lifted when all said and done? And what size tires?

Im my mind there is a stopping point, and anything above that is just to much. Its not fun having a truck you need a ladder to get into, or that has so much wheel well showing you could put a mini cooper in it
