Re: 1991 ccsb duramax

What did you go with for the lift? 4" or 6"?

Re: 1991 ccsb duramax

Awesome build!

What are you going to put behind the Dmax? (Man/auto)

What are your plans for the finished product? A service truck or ???

It looks pretty tall for 4", but I'm sure it will settle some.

Re: 1991 ccsb duramax

crossover tend to be installed in the front hole . the rear hole is for high steer use .

watch out for them sh!tty cast aluminum shims sky jacker uses . i have had a few sets break out and fall out after just a few months . and 4" lift i would just remove them my self . helps keep the caster were it should be as dana 60 axles are a bit fussy on caster and death wobble showing up if its wrong .

otherwise looking good .

Re: 1991 ccsb duramax

the problem with most led headlight upgrades is SNOW / ICE driving .

there is no heater grid to melt them off . all the heat is out the back side not the front were you need it .

i just did a full led upgrade on my work truck that takes 4x6 4 headlight system . all i can say is WOW worth every penny i spent on good units . . . j.w.speaker with heater grid .

sad part is not offered in this tiny size for 89-91 quad light style tho .
