Ok, ok, question here. Tell me if I'm right or wrong though (I may actually be learning something ;D )


Ok, your drag link looks a little close to the leaf springs. But, after thinking about it for a little bit, I realize that they are attached to the wheel, which will also move in the event that the spring does. With this being said, no matter how much flex you put on it, the drag link will flex along with the spring, so that it *should* never make contact with it? Now, this is to a certain degree, but I am thinking that the tires will make contact with sheet metal before an angle on the drag link will cause it to make contact with the spring. Am I thinking along the right lines here?

you are correct Randall. Avalanche Engineering makes a 1" spacer that you can add under the arm if it does make contact.Pretty sweet piece too, the arm and spacer have an enterlocking surface to keep the twisting to a min. the arm also has a 2 degree twist to help with the angle. Robert at DEOR built the drag link with 1ton high angle ends. what you do have to worry about is the drag link making contact with the K-member under the engine at full stuff on the passenger side. without the spacer i'll be shredding sheetmetal long before it makes contact.

that pic was taken just after install. not that clean now, finally got her back together and able to drive it. it's the AGR S box - S series Dodge RC 20:1. it has no trouble turning the 36's, think i'm going with their pump when the stock one dies.

oh ok, then it's the same as mine I assume, I got the same box. Oh and the pump, I just got that beast installed on Friday, the housing of my stock one cracked and I got mad at that rattle it was making since November :)

Nice Rig!

How do you like the Parnelli Jones tires? What kind of wheeling have you done with them?
just have got it together where i can wheel so i can't give much of a review. done just some beach wheeling that's about it. with out dropping psi they dig like crazy. but get em down around 9 or 10 psi and they float well. also they are a lot quiter than the mickey thompsons i had before. the footprint they leave is very simular to a tsl ssr in lug size and spacing.
