Housing floater is on spring slider is temporarily mounted. Before I mount it for good I am wondering how much distance you guys are leaving for compression. Right now I have it set for 6 inches from axle tube to bump stop, is that enough?
I want to center the spring eye in my slider before I weld my mount on.

It's mono leaf with coil overs and ladder bars. I'm trying not to purchase shocks and springs until final weigh in. Is that even feasible?

Thanks gang.

Finally got the engine done and dyno'd

Pretty happy! just off at just under 600CI

I think it has a pretty wide power band and should make for an interesting ride.

when I get the engine build sheet I can post more info

I have a video in mp4 but it wont upload-any hints?

On your slider mount pic, I have mine mounted the same way, but also added 2 brace tubes from the outside edge to the top of the piece of angle to ensure it doesn't try to flex up. May have never needed it, but felt safer.

for sure-I will be putting gussets there as well as boxing and fish plating where where my ladder bar and radius arms attach at the frame.

I don't need any funny business!

Update, this truck has come a little further now. I'm pushing Derrick to get this done for spring!! I'm excited to see this thing go, I'm pretty sure this thing will end up faster then mine, it's SOOO light!!

When in doubt, hold'er to the floor.......I'm usually in doubt.

Got me some nice ladder bars thanks to Myron.
S & W Roll Cage with a few extra gussets put in.
My dad did the cage install and tied the rear ladder bars and front radius arms together pretty nicely.
I've got 90% of the parts here I think, throttle pedal with cable and a brake system are probably all that's left to collect....I think hahaha!!!

Just need to find some time to finish this thing.

Finally found some time hehehe!!!
We tested it out today, paced off 200 feet and had a pretty good time but nothing official.
Seems to handle pretty good, takes off on the brake like a rocket too on the clay, once we got the starting line chewed up it hooked even harder!
There are a few locals that really helped get this done--THANK YOU GUYS!!
