Thanks Will the Nissan is a gooooood time!I saw this thing in person a few weeks and my goodness, it is beautiful.
After I saw what I saw, I can say that I wouldn't do anything different - if I had the money of course, LOL. Can't wait to see more progress on this thing.
Oh, and Nick's 240 is pretty fucking cool too.
OK, so I guess I am still missing the point. Any weight saved for the bump mount....would be put right back on(and probably more) with the whole assembly that pivots, right?Yes, zero scrub on the bump means the mounts don't need to be nearly as strong.
Renezeders truck had regular bypasses for slappers in the rear.
No. 50% of the slapper arm yes, but it attaches so far inboard that it really doesn't make a difference. All of the oldschool trucks that ran that way had urethane bumps on the arm. No metal to metal. Also the slapper shock geometry looks less than desirable on the above truck. Also short bumpstop.........technically speaking... wouldn't 50% of that new weight you added for the assembly be "unsprung".
