    You've got some of my favorite pics for Centurion jumping. Completely badass. Wish I lived out there.

    Well, decided to Change some things with the motor (add a girdle and some more coating, so the truck is still not running yet. Hoping to be running by October.

    Unfortunately I ran into a huge obstacle with the motor. While it was getting the rest of the machine work done somebody decided to break into the shop and steal the motor! The people who built the motor are replacing everything but there's just a lot of time involved due to starting over from scratch.
    But, I found a complete motor out of a wrecked truck for a steal, so I threw that in there so that I can finally drive the stupid thing again. Definitely not as much fun with a stock engine but it's still nice to drive the truck. Found some time to go on a little wheeling trip a little while ago.

    Love the wheeling pics. Did you ever SAS it? I have heard horror stories about TTB and rock crawling so I am curious. Also you have a 4" lift up front with 6" rear springs and 36" tires? I love the way the tires fill the wheel wells on your truck. I just want to make sure I have the combo correct.

    thanks

    Thanks for the compliments. I didn't actually go over the whole obstacle, some of the rock steps were as tall as the truck lol. Nope, the truck still has the TTB on the front. I keep saying I'll put a dana 60 under the front once this TTB needs balljoints, but those things refuse to give up, so it stays. Hasn't given me any problems though, so I can't complain. You have the setup right, it has 6" springs in the rear but I put blocks in that were 2" shorter than the stock ones, so it gives 4" of lift.
