Quite a few reasons as it’s something we went back and forth on.I'm not the most schooled in offroad, but why not run a 4 link rear? seems like a lot of money and fabrication done and spent already so just asking. they killled it on that cage
makes sense. I'm finnishing a linked blazer...and there's no back seat anymore lolQuite a few reasons as it’s something we went back and forth on.
biggest reason is we wanted a full size back seat not just a single seat. The link rear would take up quite a bit of room.
he’s built quite a few this way and is seeing 20+ travel out of the spring trucks. That’s more then enough for what this will do.
This is also built for my mom and she won’t be pushing it as hard as I do my explorer.
lastly webought the truck mid build and itwas already done as a spring truck so it wasn’t worth the money to go link.
Yup. Rear travel on this set up is around 24 according to builder.This is such a sweet build! Thanks for giving us the updates! I've said it before, but leaf springs are not a bad way to go. You can get over 20" of travel out of the Deaver race packs with a little bit of tuning. Couple that with a nice set of King bypass shocks and you'll be amazed at how well it works.
that seems pretty insane on springs....its hard to get to that level on a linked truck. Mine ends up being 16 front ad 18 rear. would have bee cheaper to get 20" out of springs if thats the case lolYup. Rear travel on this set up is around 24 according to builder.
i will post it when it’s done.RB thank you for the updates! I've really enjoyed watching it come together. Quick question regarding access to the rear seat. Are you guys putting a pivot on the front passenger seat to tilt it forward for access to the rear? Or is it a "Crawl over through the middle of the front seats" type of arrangement? If it's the first, could you post up a pic how Richer is doing it?? Thank you in advance!
I'm very jealous of that center console and dash. Really makes me wish we put more thought and effort in to mine now, went a lot more utilitarian basic
They are not, it’s a different brand that the interior guy found. I have the cover lay in my explore and you can definitely tell they are aftermarket, these look more factory like.Badass, Are those Coverlay door panels? Mine are getting pretty rough and could use a refresh
