Thinking of trying this out with a Ranger Splash I'd originally planned to build as a pro streeter!

It would look Great either way.

I've had some paint issues and had to strip the bed. Ugh..

Finally got the rear suspension done.
Nothing really major.
Made 6"inch lift blocks, 4 u-bolts and 8 nuts
Keep it all straight was the fun part and grabbing the wrong SuperGlue.
SuperThin Super Glue is not a Drip on from the bottle type of Glue
It's a Run all over the place glue. :o B)

BTW: This is not how you should lift a 1:1 truck 6"inches.
Final ride height with out anything but suspension holding it up and level :D

One is part of a small paperclip and the other 3 are part of a pushpin bent into a U shape with a
Evergreen Plastic Hex Rod drilled out to fit the wire.
The block is 1/8" X 1/4"inch Evergreen strip.
I did square it up a bit better after pic..

THanks..
