Those are Claytons 7" Coils... new at that... only have a couple runs on them... so in time they will break in.

It's still pretty damn impressive fitting 42s with only 10" of lift. There is a guy on my local board running like 12" of lift and only 37s and I can't convince him that is a ridiculously dumb amount of lift. (http://www.greatlakes4x4.com/showthread.php?t=55973)

I haven't been here in a long time.

Updates have been CTM 40 Spline shafts for the D60, Fox 2.5" Coilovers I'm the front, Air bumps too up front. Nice set of 6ply trail gear limit straps up there. Ron Davis aluminum Radiator, Iron Man off road eng/trans mounts. And a fresh rebuild on the trans. Installed billet shafts in the trans this time too.

Link to pics on MC...

Too hard to post them here from iPhone.

Thanks
Jerod
