You sir are ridiculous but way freakin not a ton of lift, but a TON of clearance. It's like a six inch lift without the top heavy!

LOL! Yeah, thats about it. Very minimal increase in COG, but lots of ground clearance, and its slideable ground clearance. Once I fab the belly pan, I should be able to drop onto the belly of the truck, and just slide along. Nothing to hang up on anymore.

Couple shots of the flat belly with the drivelines in, and the exhuast:

BTW: HUGE Props to Buds Muffler in Denver. Best exhaust place ever.

Looks real good Isaac, I know there has been a lot of planning and sweating put into this.

Does this mean we need to go out and shake things down? Been a long time!

Yes, yes it does.

I need to get my sliders all finished up, and the belly skid done, but then it'll be ready to roll.

I love the way it turned out underneath. Looks really really slick. I love how far up you got the drivetrain. Great work, you really put some time into it and it shows!

Buds was really great to me too. I went there a while back and they really did me up right.
