after 8 seconds of searching I found one....and few guys that admitted to torching springs, although that's not really important.
anyway, at least when he got rid of his rear brakes he plugged them right? hell, he could have just bent the lines over. You guys get really focused on the whole brakes thing not being safe and I agree its not the best, but for what the truck is doing it'll be fine. Hell, I'd rather be riding with no rear brakes then a skyjacked s-10. You think 30% (and realistically, its prolly closer to 15%) less braking is bad, wait till you have to slam on the brakes and make a quick turn in something thats too tall and too narrow
sas10, that looks pretty good, I never got into the riden' high thing. I had a trail rider that I used to take around that was just a 2 inch lift on 30's and that was alot of fun, but the 4.3 didn't have the torque for all out mudding. do you do anything with that or is it just 4sho? also, don't takes so personal, it makes you look stupid. Also, not to undermine your work, but it doesn't take much to lift an s-10. As long as you have donor front axle it goes together pretty nice with the right bolt on parts...
but no, i've never seen halo's for a 1st gen, but quite a few for 2nd gens. I've thought about putting HID's in my 2 first gens but I've been presently surprised with the light coming off the regular bulb. I might do it in the HS Blazer for kicks, HA!
alright, first off, I'm not the type to go after dumb people unless they're endangering others and this guy is unfortunately. if you say that not having rear brakes isn't IDEAL, you need to re-think what your idea of ideal is cause it's pretty far from the truth.
bought my first s10 with no rear brakes(didnt know till i had to stop), guess what, front tires locked up and i almost crashed into a car because of it. granted rear drums don't do much, but if you lose a line in the front, the rears will come in harder and stop the truck. there is a reason why single master cylinders are illegal on the road. you say we stop on having no rear brakes and get him for that. **** yes we are!!!! this is stupid to think you can get away with only front brakes. for what the truck is doing it'll be fine? it's driving ON THE ROAD with other people. even if I'm thousands of miles away from him, i still find this dumb. hell, if i was closer i think I'd go at his place and cut his front brake and fuel lines off just to make sure he can't drive it like that.
second, a skyjacked truck will not be driven bumper to bumper by any intelligent driver and the need to swerve should not happen. yes it is tippier than a lowered truck, it isn't meant to be good on road like a stock truck.
third, you say you ain't into high riding so you're into lowriders then. same people you try to hate on. is it just me or that's very funny? and telling people their truck makes them look stupid when no one has ever seen yours to be able to judge you? that's besides the point anyways as you don't need a vehicle to judge a person, you judge them by their attitudes and what comes out of their mouth, or their fingers in this instance. thruth be told, you don't look so good to be able to mouth off to anyone if you're protecting someone who has a truck that is dangerous to drive on the road and that DD it.
you say you're not into the high rider stuff and it shows. I have not seen a single SAS dime that was fully bolt on to do. there is welding required to get those spring perches on the axle and even if we don't count this, would you really trust your life on 2-4 bolts to hold your front crossmember?(nothing against the company, i just don't trust that) plus, how are you going to get the rear springs over the axle without welding? no one is making a rear bolt-on flip kit yet.
OP, if you don't drive it on the road with locked out rear brakes and trailer it, i don't give a damn. just don't put other people in danger like so many already stated. you never know when that extra 15-30% braking will be needed to prevent you from hitting a child and putting him in a wheelchair for the rest of his life cause you didn't have the cash to fix your truck and still drove it.
anyways, thanks for entertaining us and have fun reading all the other replies that will be similar to mine, except maybe shorter and more blunt.
