you could go out and buy a Air Ride Tech 4 link but personally I think after you pay for the 4 link and have some one put it in (if you don't want to do it yourself), then your just as well of as if you got a race or rod shop to fab you one up. Your talking a 4link for bags right?

I don't care if it's bag's or springs. I'd be just as happy without the air bags...

I've seen kit's for 55 & up on these, but not for 47-53. how hard would it be to fab something up like this? there are no race shops around here, but I do have access to a really good welder / fabrication person.

If you have access to a really good fab man then you've got it made. It would be super easy to make up. Not sure about pinion angle? check here <a href="http://www.classictruckshop.com/t4.htm" target="_blank">http://www.classictruckshop.com/t4.htm</a>
Heres a kit I found on <a href="http://www.suicidedoors.com" target="_blank">www.suicidedoors.com</a> <a href="http://www.suicidedoors.com/products/4-link_bars.htm" target="_blank">http://www.suicidedoors.com/products/4-link_bars.htm</a> I've heard their quality is good. 199 for a 4 link with all the brackets is pretty good. I would print of the pic and show you welder and see what he thinks.

thanks for the info Fry... I believe that looks like they way to go. I don't think it'll hook up like springs & a ladderbar, but should make it a lot more fun all around on the street (which is what I would be more interested in anyway).

im far away .but if you have the minimal of fab skills i can set you up with a kit...we can build it to your specs...all you would need is a welder maybe a grinder...my website just has rockcrawlers on it now but im working on expanding the site to show what we do.

Get a copy of Alston Chassis Works catalog, it has a how to do it section complete with pictures. They have done a pick up or 2 and will show you what you want and need. Most of the truck frames are very similar no matter what the year or brand and the same principals apply to all of them.
