    Very nice...wish I had the time to make one of those backdrag blades...your hydraulic lines are not done right...you put the left ram hose through the ring on the right side of the A frame and the right side line through the left so the don't get caught.

    Beef up that front suspension if you haven't already. My 90 (4cyl. 5 sp) I bought for $1900 and put and used $800 blade on it 6 years ago. If I had to guess I billed out $30k with it since. Replaced clutch master cylinder and front brake lines to date.

    from what I've read, its not necessary to beef up the suspension on the 6 cyls. The front end only drops slighly when the blade is raised.

    No...mine drops 2" when my airbags are not inflated properly and wait till you bottom out on the bump stops, nevermind the lights shining 50' in front of you.

    this is a 95 with a leafspring front suspension.....the coil over shocks dont handle the load as well therefore the need for airbags,timbrens etc
