PB King gets flipped
« on: August 23, 2013, 08:18:41 AM »
No not this  :flipoff: :));D

I tried putting my trucks lift springs on Joe's truck. It sat 7" lower, this is one heavy Chevy.  Time to do something more time consuming.

Forward motion:

Shackle flip  Drivers side my spring , right side stock one ton spring. Just like Goldilocks. Time to pull a leaf or two out of the one ton stack. :rotfl:

Ended up installing the right one ton spring with two leaves removed. It split the difference. Monday I'll take two out of the drivers side.

That zombie looking thing on the back of the truck looks badass.

This truck is used for recovery which means heavy winching. The home brewed shackle reversal seems like it will fail during this process. Just curious why you guys decided to do this.

The mascot is Maynard. We are trying to get a little softer ride.  It rides pretty rough as the springs on it were originally beefed up for the stake body and lift gate.  As for the mounts they will end up being triangulated. I think they will be strong enough but time will tell.

Build or buy a set of beefed up cross tied shackles for the back. You will bend the stock ones with what he does with that truck. If you have a good set of shackles and good reinforcement on the buckets it will probably survive for a long time.

This was my thought process also. Sure would suck to break on a recovery and then have to deal with it also.

Maynard is alright in my book. I need to find one of those.

This is the mount with the front and rear braces.

Trial fit.  Next we are going to have to move the perch forward about one and a half inches.

Its been on several recoveries and everything is holding up fine. Here it is on the ramp at Rock and Ramp. It went up another foot and all the tires were still on the ground. I think it would of got to the top but the fan was beating the crap out of the fan shroud.



We ran it up the rock pile last month and found out the hard way it needs a long spline front drive shaft.
Don't have a picture of that.
