Impressive. Looks familiar. You're truck's twin is here in PA minus the sweet bumper. Nice job. I lucked out with none of my bolts seized, but def know the challenge from prior rigs. BTW I was able to sneak in the new Thuren springs without a compressor. I had to pull my 3 ton jack out from under the center, use it to push up on one knuckle, install spring on opposite side and then vice versa. I did this with OE swaybar links removed. When you push up on one side you can get the other side to dip plenty further. This is exactly why these solid axle trucks are better at keeping the wheels on the ground, especially when the swaybar is disconnected.

I drove around with no sway bar drop links for 2 months and it was so smooth. I had to put the links on for a highway trip this weekend.

Better (and much cheaper) yet, get Able Components (David) locker/swaybar bypass kit. Plug-n-play. :wink:

truth be told, understandable statement... i have an air release and while i typically switch it off for slow going anywhere, i need my factory sway bar for throwing the truck around on the road.

anyone can benefit from 3.0 kings though....they serve a different purpose(boogie-rated)

With all this time at home I finally finished my bumper. Added stiffeners and finished the wheel well corners along with drilling mounting holes. Still haven’t got pictures fully mounted. Tubing is in the garage for the rock sliders. California is under a stay at home order so I’ll be working on my truck quite a bit.

Looking good.
I know what you mean about the spare time. I’m just about done with home projects then I can start on the truck stuff.
Enjoy shelter at home. 😀

Thanks mule
Synthetic line or steel cable? The cable that came on the truck needed to be replaced what are thoughts?
