Simple rocksliders

Built my rocksliders yesterday and finished painting them today. They're pretty simple, but should work for me.

I will eventually paint the cladding. Leaf springs are cheap and easy for me. I used parts i already had.

How big of a jack does it take to lift the front high enough to change the oil?

Did you ever get the speedo input figured out?

Why didn't you just cut the rockers off and burn in box steel with frame supports between rockers and uniframe rails? Would've gained some unibody strength too, which can't be a bad thing considering you're running 1-ton full widths on 42s...

Thanks. Some jobs are easier with it being high and some suck, like having to stack wood under a bottle jack to lift the tires off the ground. And yes i did get the speed sensor figured out, kinda simple really but it still took me a week of racking my brain and cutting wires to finally get it right. I had to buy a Dakota digital box and tie in the correct wires and blam-o i had a speedometer and odometer again. Its still about 5 mph off but the engine light went off.
