Richard's Solid Axle Swap
Richard tried to hold out and keep the IFS, but after getting tired of it's limitations, he went to a solid front axle. Modifications include: All Pro Wide-track spacer kit, All Pro HySteer crossover steering kit, Alcan 5" lift front springs with the axle moved 1.5" forward, Rancho 9012 front shocks, 4.88's and a Detroit. I guess the 33x14 boggers are obvious ;)
In the pictures below, Richard has not yet installed the 56" long rear Alcan springs to level the truck out.
Here is a shot of the front suspension (hey, I just snap pics whenever I can)
