    I have used these before and they work great.





    Hope this helps.

    Yes I like the stance also. I haven't figured out what paint I am going with, my dad had an 83 f150 short bed and if I remember right the paint was pyrite or pirate blue. I will be going to the paint store later today to see if I can get close to that color. and the topper is going to be white with black trim around the windows.

    You are right, I finally had the chance to take everything apart and I found out even moving the servo mount that little bit does make a difference. The servo mount hits and blocks the front leaf spring shackles and wont let the front end flex at all. I guess I should of not been in a hurry to get it mounted and then post it here. Next time I will be more careful and inspect everything more closely. I will post pictures in a little bit to show you.

    Thanks, it took me awhile before I could afford that setup. I didn't want to make the mistake I made when the fracture v8 was in production, when I did get around to having the funds it was discontinued. I bought the topper for the Mojave body and its a little too long and narrow at the back to fit the f350 bed. I wont have a difficult job like your going to have by building from scratch with styrene, basically ill just have to cut out a small section to shorten it and then reinforce the seem and then split it down the middle just enough to widen it to match the width of the bed.

    This is my first TF so I am not sure how much flex a leaf spring is supposed to have. I never paid attention to the flex before I moved the servo. Tomorrow I will have a closer look to see. I only moved the mount maybe a little over 1/4 of an inch to the front and it doesn't seem like that would make a difference.
