May 12, 2006The mazda is a 1986 B2000 I have also found that on the rear at least on mine which I am sure it is the same on the other's there is a bar that hold's the frame together instead of all the crossmembers like on a nissan that would make a perfect bridge it is already there for you to use just have to install your notchs. And the air shocks are one hell of an idea to use with a bag setup I think it could have unlimited uses on a setup me and my ex boss have been going over some different setup's and that is the best one we have come up with using bags and air shocks he build's race car frame's so he said he would love to help build a air bag setup he is like a second dad to me. But anyway's good talking to you again and keep in touch I'm not usally on this site much because it seems to have slowed down alot can't get to many people to reply I am mostly on nissanminis.com. I had to come and reply to this I always reply to a post. Talk to you later bro.

May 13, 2006Good deal man. They're the same year. lol Yeah, that cross-tube you're talking about is great! I'm sure you're talking about the one that runs 'through' the frame side to side. We saw that and thought about the same thing. Mounting stuff to it! If all goes right, when he notches his frame, the bar can stay. Worse case, we'll relocate it, or weld in a bigger dia bar in it's place. We'll see.
It's great to hear about your 'second dad' being so interested in the build. I've got a guy like that here, and we used to do chopper stuff together before it got too big. Now we're low key. haha
As for the site, yeah, I noticed it's slowed down as well.
Hopefully, that means more people are out wrenchin' and not typing. lol
I'm usually on mightyd50.com now so I know what you mean.
Jumping back and forth keeps me buisier though. haha
I'll definitely keep in touch. Talking to you is like talking to myself.
But better yet . . I get an answer. hahaha
Hey, I'll talk to ya later on bro!

November 28, 2011Anyone have any recommendations for lowering shocks, mine are about shot. I have overload shock on the ranger right now, they were a cheap & quick buy that I did 2 years ago right when I first started workin on my truck. Anyone have any shock suggestions for a static drop? thanks guys.
