Re: Smitty's 67 Build

Looks awesome. Are you planning to notch the frame at all or do you think you will be low enough without it? What about bump stops?

Re: Smitty's 67 Build

No notch in the frame we raised the rails 5.5 inches. There will be a bump stop above the axle. It should be 2 inches off the ground aired out.

Put it on the ground to see how it looks. It will sit about a inch lower when done.
