I bought a white 94 extended cab recently, here is where I started

Bumperless, fiberglass fenders, stock beams with king 2.0s in the front and fox resis in the rear, 2 shit racing seats inside and the whole interior smelled like ten years of cigarettes



Then I removed the carpet and one seat



Now I have installed a new carpet and a nice stock passenger seat and ill get pics later

Also, one leaf is higher than the other, because the ranger lean will effect the one side, I arched it a little more so it wont lean when I am in the truck and it will stay flatter longer

Anyone know if it is reasonable to remove the crossmember right above the rear axle? So I can angle my rear 16 inchers instead of having them straight up?

It is.. but remember the already weak noodle frame will become that much weaker. Can you cut that one and then weld in a new further towards the rear?

You're mounting your shocks inside the frame? Or am I not understanding the question?
Nono, I want to mount my 16 inch resis at an angle towards the cab because I don't like them sticking straight up. But to do that I have to remove that thirdmember or crossmember that is above the rear axle
