absolutly true
same pictures in Europe, food and medicine industry is on a high level, industry and automotive is coming back, in germany specially due to the hybrid subvention payments by the state.
If you buy a hybrid you 4500€ down from goverment, if full electric its 9000€ plus the price down from manufacturers.

I ordered 2 VW UP electric cars for 50€ a month leasing rate, and an electric golf for 79€/month leasing. (as company pool cars)

Here's a little teaser and probably the biggest reason I'm going to try to pick up some more extra shifts. Oh boy...

Man... they got a lot of stuff that can be good and useful.
It’s category drivetrain? But even that help will not be a real help :)
So Tuesday = Christmas?

Make a quick stop at the JY and picked up a couple of C-caps that don't have the quad shock mounts. One was in the bed of the truck and the other was underneath it on the ground. Didn't even have to use any tools, nice. I'll be wire wheeling and getting them painted. I'm going to be removing the factory quad shock setup on my Bronco.

Aesthetics basically. Plus, if someone else wants a factory quad setup, I can give it to them.

Yeah, I was hoping the C caps were still there. I've pulled a few parts off that particular truck in the JY and the last time I was there the front axle was gone. I figured I might get lucky and I sure did.

I may be willing to let the bracket go, but it'll be a while before I get around to removing things. It'll be after I get my lift on and it looks like I'm going to be waiting quite a while for parts to arrive. I decided to piece together my own lift kit as I didn't like the pre-made ones a lot of people offer. I'm sure it'll cost me a lot more though!

It will cost you know, as usual individual setups do!

willing to wait for you, sure, it’s nearly 5 mm thick steel, so I will have problems to fab this highly bend parts myself.

thanks!! :)

So far, for my pieced together lift this is what I either have in my possession, have ordered already and waiting on, or intend to get.

Deaver 5" Coils up front
Deaver 4" Leaves in back
I have extended brake lines already installed
Duff long travel radius arms
4 degree C bushings
Duff HD lower coil Retainers
Duff universal long travel shock mounts and hardware for dual shocks
Duff adjustable trac bar with heavy duty trac bar end

I also have a Duff Torque Tamer traction bar coming as well, but that's not directly related to the lift. I had to tell them I was naming my next child Duff in order to get all these parts.

I'm 100% sure this isn't all I'll need, but it's the majority of what I have "figured out" so far. I'm considering a tie rod over setup, but like everything else I'm gathering I feel like I'd want to seriously upgrade things and get something like a heim steering setup. That's another significant chunk of money, so I'm going to wait until I get some of this stuff put on before I do something like that.

This will be an offroad beast with that setup.
Well, change the make from FORD to DUFF - we just need to find an U letter....

looks for me like an impressive lift of well choosen components!!

This is very similar to what I've pieced together in my mind. Which rear springs did you go with? Are you considering a shackle flip?

The H57's from Deaver.



I would consider a shackle flip, but only if I decide I want more lift than what the leaves give me by themselves. I know @BikerPepe` has those sweet zero rate blocks for a shackle flip if I decide to go that route.

Well, I got a text yesterday from FedEx saying that I was getting a delivery today and someone needed to be there to sign for it and it had a url link for me to click on. I didn't bother checking it out, figuring it was spam or an attempt at phishing. I was told from James Duff that they'd send a tracking number once everything shipped, I have not received anything from them yet. I took another look at it today and the url looks legit, so I checked it out. It was a url for the tracking and it says I'm getting a freight delivery today (out for delivery), so... James Duff order I guess? Maybe someone forgot to tell me about it. lol. Guess I'll find out. I was going to go do some JY hunting today, but I don't want to miss the delivery if I have to sign for it. Hmm...

Sure enough, James Duff boxes showed up. I haven't opened them up yet, but my cats checked the boxes for obvious damage and the boxes look good.

Tomales and camper RVs are selling like crazy. Milk was dumped i think, as schools were closed. My wife gets school milk and cheese from her neice that is a teacher from the school freezer.... i work in the automotive aftermarket (performance stuff) and we can't get enough products. Demand is super high. I like yogurt but not the Greek stuff that my wife like. I like you play or store brand. Lol
