That actually looks like it was really built up the right way, nothing rigged or done unsafely. Also extremely thorough from the looks of it. Is that an iron D44 rear?

Yeah, except for that massive block lift for the rear. Not sure why he has control arms for the rear when he is running leafs, maybe he had plans for coils?

I would give him $5500 not a penny more.

Okay, nice looking rig. I'll be the first to point out why I wouldn't pay $5000.00 for it. I might be willing to do $3500, but only because of the mileage. The price is lowered, for what I would pay, because of the stuff I'd have to do to make me feel comfortable in it offroad:

"Custom Built Lift" It looks like Long Arms, front and rear, but those blocks would have to go. How much is a decent set of lift springs and possibly shackles? $40,000 invested and those blocks are the best he can do?

Is that a Dana 30 up front? even trussed, doesn't mention about shafts, updated u-joints, ect. It's trussed, but what's the inside look like? With 36's...yeah, not trusting that without more information

"Hesco throttle body spacer" Hasn't it been determined, by many threads on here that this is a waste of money?

"Jet stage III chip" I know this has been proven to be crap on the 4.0.

"E-fire plugs" Haven't we determined that good ol' champions are the best? I've never even heard of these blugs.

"Surco roof rack with lights" Not gutter mounted, worried about ripping it off by the first low hanging branch. Spent $40,000 upgrading your ride and went cheap on your roof rack? Doesn't even have the spare tire on it...where is that anyway?

"Slip yoke kit" Doesn't mention anything about eliminating the slip yoke...hmm...sounds like somebody paid to have this done and doesn't understand what it really does, or doesn't have a standard SYE?

"Over $40,000 Invested!" I have a very hard time buying that, unless they bought it new for $20,000 and had a mechanic do all the work at triple, for quadruple the parts cost...

Other observations: No Winch, no recovery on the front, that I can see. Recovery point in the back...Is that bolted on? I know it was asked if that was a D44 in the rear, but from my angle, it looks like a D35 with a custom cover. I don't see any bump stops. Didn't trim the front...

Over all, I'm not impressed with the build from the close up pics, but sweet looking ride. If I saw it at the mall, cruising buy, I'd
