my 1st gen...1980 longbed
« on: Dec 15, 2007, 12:32:12 AM »
earliest picture i could find....stock springs, stock everything...had 31" buckshots on it i believe
(its a picture of a picture so its kinda hard to see)




here it is after putting on the crappy 4in lift and sky's hy-steer, also some 33" BFG's....it works for now but i need to get some money for all the marlin parts!!! cases are comin first...

i took out 16 inches in the rear!!!! it is a good old truck..its been around, pretty much all my friend have owned it before me....it was stock when i got it...then i got some cheapy springs, bobbed the bed, got some steering, had the tires, just got done about a month ago rebuilding the 20r...now its time for all new suspension, tires, locker in front, some cases, and everything else  :yesnod: :beer:
