Here is a pic of the truck with cut coils before I started all the work. It rode great. Maybe the 3/4 tons dont I have no idea on that. but the 1/2 tom with 1.5 or 2 coil cut rode fine. Been too long to know how much I trimmed off.

Re: How about some pics of Static dropped 60-66

Someone asked for a side view, this is the best I got right now. It is a leaf spring rearend, I am in the process of switching it over to a 5 bolt pattern so it is on jack stands right now. I have a 2 inch further drop in the rear to level it out.

What are the stats on the one with the 454?

Front/Rear drop?
Wheel/Tire sizes?

That looks picture perfect to me!
