I was already doing that before. Now I guess I'd need another 4" of drop hitch (or a lowered trailer). Good thing the Jeep has a tow package...

Re: How to: Ruin a perfectly good C10

Little more progress and she is back on her feet and very near terra firma! In these shots, the coilovers are as low as they will go and still not in the sweet spot at mid-stroke. It will come down another 3/4 to full inch once it's all back together

Re: How to: Ruin a perfectly good C10

It's a little hard to tell but judging by the back of the cab it looks like you'll be around a 6" ride height? That sounds about perfect to me.

I'm thinking 6.5" or so, but that remains to be seen. My goal is to be around "bagged on stock suspension" dumped height

Looks great! I'm running the PB coilover 4 link rear with the touring notches on my 66 so I'll have a similar ride height (whenever I get done with rust repair...

Chris, Here is the fix for photobucket I use goggle chrome on my computer. I did a google search for photobucket fix and there was this from google chrome: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/d...fegnfnflicjjgj
I clicked on it and at the top right there is a blue box that says add to chrome. so I clicked on it and that is all I did. now I can see all the pictures in the build threads on this forum and others.

Chris, I think I'm more excited to see yours done and back together more than mine.

Frame's looking good Chris! I think you'll be sitting lower than I will aired out in the back with my factory frame rails.

Likewise. Too bad we don't live closer, we could work out an exchange program

That's what I'm after--I want it to make people scratch their heads. Maybe even a custom plate: ALTYMLO or NOTBAGD...

Re: How to: Ruin a perfectly good C10

My Boyd welding tank showed up, so I dropped it between the 'rails. This thing is high quality and worth every penny. Now I can work on plumbing fuel and brake lines
