don't waste your money or time on putting chevies in the rear.  save your money and link the rear.  You can do it fairly cheap with coil springs and heims from ruffstuff.  I have a bunch of 1/4 plate to make brackets with

Do you suggest a 3 link or 4 link?

I found out its a Ramsey winch. I am going to try to make it so that the controls are in the dash. So I can use it to adjust the ride height in the front up and down while wheelin.

 I started the new paint job last night.  I am going Monster blue cage with black .  Pics will post tonight.  

Beck got as close as she could to the color of this with the stickers that monster sends you.

was there a reason the top bars dont go all the way to the end of rig? looks like the back passengers could get hurt if it flips over.

I just put the back seat in for a mock up.  I am going to mock up a bunch of seats and see what ones fit best.  Have not attached anything yet for rear passangers.  Yes I do agree the cage needs more bars and more triangulation on the back and the top for rear and front passangers.

So I am trying to wire up the winch and looking for a w/d to make it run of a momentary switch.  I do not want to use the the winch controller cause I want to control it from the cab.
