    I wouldn't sweat a couple degrees on the pinion Joint. It will be enough to move the rollers around and keep them lubed. It will also help prevent brinelling.

    I am unsure about using copper tube in a structural capacity. Especially the crap that home depot sells. Maybe bite the bullet and buy some 6061 pipe from MMC?

    Yes, you should change them. If you don't use your welder that often, your wire will start to rust (even in the high desert). Rusty wire is the death of liners. I have to replace mine almost yearly. Also, those little clip on felt wiper deals will help keep the liner clean. Or paper clip and...

    When was the last time you changed the liner?

    Freightliner M2 4x4?

    Yes you can run super singles on those. The local utility company has a couple of field trucks set-up with supers front and rear.

    I feel your pain, there is no way I'm going junk yard hunting in Missouri in the summer. No matter how big the discount. Save that for the fall/winter. It's actually easier in the winter, stuff rolls/slides better on frozen ground. And the lack of blood sucking bugs........

    Ryan should be able to get you any dim's you need. Quick is relative, that's a lot of rod to throw down. A lot of tacking to lock it for welding. Your going to have to jump around a little to keep it from becoming a banana.

    The shocks will probably be there before you get done welding all that together..........

    Colorado / Canyon bent frame

    You want design flaw, you should see the semi loads of Toyota frames going through here to replace all the rusted out ones. Box frames hold way more water than C channel frames. Mix that with a little road salt and you're boned.

    Colorado / Canyon bent frame

    Looks like a standard off the shelf unit to me, same length as all the ones I have and looks shorter than my drop down.

    Ryan is good to deal with and knows what he's doing. He should be able to set you up out of the box with valving and spring rate. Way easier than piecing it together yourself.

    There is no hitch extension. Here is a before shot.

    Colorado / Canyon bent frame

    I saw a Canyon in downtown Dallas that was being used as a delivery truck. It had a lift gate on the back of it. The gap between the bed and the cab looked a little big. Looked like one more good load and it would look like this truck.
