flip that reverse link setup around to a levered forward 4 link setup, and then it will be a damn nice truck. Everything else looks good. :tup:

Looks hot, the reverse 4 will be fine, don't listen if people flame you for it. Its not like this is gonna be a racecar, or something you wanna pull 4 lateral g's with in the corners. Just drive sencibly and I'm sure you will love it.

Yeah the reverse 4 will be fine. BUT u do need to gusset them bag mounts man, i noticed the drivers side is bent real bad. U put enough stress on that and one day you twist the frame real bad, or worse, rip the frame or rip the bag mount right off. Id suggest like 1x2 bars goinacross the top of the mounts from side to side in order to keep them down. Just beat the one back in place and use some 1x2 or 1x1 box and go striaght across side to side for more support....

But now that i look again, it might look like ur bags come above the palte when u lay out...U could find a way to run gussets i guarentee it.

I had the same thing happen to my mounts when i had em on my notch but not supported on top, they bent like that and i actually put 2 small stress cracks in the bag plate from it takin such a beating. SO i beat it back, welded it up, and put some supports in.....And now i just cut em off and replaced em lol.

Everyone always says, 'if you do it right...', but I've never found any suspension books or manuals or any engineers that have been able to tell me how to do it right, so can you tell me how to set one up right?
