Nice ride. Good to see people wanting to get in this class. Maybe the rules have changed, but equal length beams are not allowed. Does this truck use equal length setup?

Snore you can run equal length beams and I believe there is a ranger with v8 as well. Seems like only rule now is leafs

From my understanding class 2000 is open, only rule being leaf sprung.


Class 2000 was and is an option that I'm having a hard time deciding if I'm gonna race it or 1400. My truck I could go both ways. Cool truck, looking forward to seeing the build

Correct, 2000 is open with leaf springs. 7100 BITD is leaf springs with suspension limits and engine limits but still an absolute blast getting to race 2 of the biggest races in the US for a reasonable price. The rules will keep it fairly budget oriented as you won't have monster race motors showing up or unlimited front ends. Both fill a great need. We just happen to fit BITD rules better.

Great score on that ranger man!

Sorry to ask here; but is there a class 2000 thread anywhere someone can link me to? I have a few questions and would like to determine if my truck would fit in 2000.

If your truck has a factory steel cab, stock frame, working doors and leaf springs it fits..
My rear frame has been notched 3" and my upper arms have been relocated to mount off the frame. I have read differing information on both notching the frame and relocating the upper arm mounts being class legal. Lower pivots are stock if that matters.
