Thank you both!
Hoping to be in a position to install a lift later this year and want to be sure it is up to the task of lifting my 7.3 E-350 EB.

Shooting a quick video on brake options

Nice layout--good to see them all together in one place.
I was really happy with my 8piston SSBC setup(what the pic doesn't show due to the pad being loaded, are the 4pistons on one side, and 4 on the other).

NJ7.3 is mobile, finishing up the roof rack and she'll be ready for road miles before heading home!

I love that color.
i also like the rocker panel in black half way to the crest. It leaves a better proportion, specially on the extended van. If I were to do mine again I'll do only half like this.

Love the look of a x-over knuckle ready to go! Not a tin of guys go for it but we do stuff them with ball joints and attach the arm if you want.



Up at 4:30, couldn't get back to sleep so to the shop I went! Roads are slick!

Holy jeebus y'all make some killer vans! Looking thru the pix I see lots of Bilstein and Fox shox. Do y'all do anything crazy with these vans? Like y'all got any King pintops or King coilovers for some serious susp? What about that green one with the flatbed, V3 or whatever its called? Still running Fox on it?

I need to tell all my buddies in 'bama about you guys. Keep rockin!

Thanks! We've been using Fox for a few years, Bilstein was getting to tough to source and had horrible lead times. Super happy with Fox. V4 has 3.0 12" travel kings all the way around, we've done a few rigs over the years with King 2.5s, Bilstein 2.5s, etc but most guys don't want to pay the $$ for them. The Fox 2.0 is plenty of shock for 99% of the vans.

So y'all still offer Bilstein or no?

Yea it wasn't easy packaging a shock that big in the van wheel wells with no inner fender mods while trying to keep it low. We don't offer any of this link stuff for DIY guys. would build another here but nothing mail order.
