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.
