Does an exploder really need bypasses in the rear? Well of course it does when you get them directly from king shocks for $600+ off of retail! Does an exploder really need hydraulic bumpstops up front? Well of course it does when you get them for $170 off of retail!

Did that on Friday. I was hoping for a little more technical stuff, but it was still cool enough!

Solid axle. Ford 8.8 with discs, 31 spline and detroit to start with mounted to a set of national springs, custom shackles and now some bypass shocks. Only thing in that equation that I don't have on hand is the detroit but I'm shopping for the best deal now. Will probably eventually do a c-clip eliminator to make sure it's pretty bomb proof plus that kit adds 2" of width to it which will help out a tiny bit in getting it closer to the front width.

I'm starting to get excited!!! I only need to pickup a detroit here fairly soon and I'm going to start watching classifieds for a deal on a winch. I've got probably about 3 weeks till I can start building it up!

Too bad you didnt have some one like me there to do the heavy lifting, would have saved your back. But, looks like a score!
