Can't wait to put it through it's paces a bit and break in the suspension.

It looks real nice with stock bumpers and such, but it'll get the flat black treatment all around.


Looking good, very jealous!

Just pulled the trigger on a van of my own, and just got a quote from Agile for the 4wd conversion. Looks like my date will be in early April.

I do have a question for you tho... do you have lift blocks in the rear?

Though I've never had a lifted truck, I've always thought no lift blocks would be better that having them. But I'm no expert either...

2" blocks and the extra leaf springs in there for about 4" total. 2" is really nothing compared to some. I can't see anything negative out of that. Lift block, add leafs, longer coil springs, drop radius arms......that's how all the lifts go up.

Get ready for something different though! It'll be a fun machine.

....well, a lift without lift blocks would minimize axle wrap, but new springs with more arch are $$$ and a couple of lift blocks are $......

You think axle wrap is that prevalent with a 2" block and added springs??

I have no idea... but it's comments like that that make me wonder how big of a deal it is, or isn't ???

I'm admittedly a bit of a noob at all this lift stuff. I don't won't to overthink it, but I also don't want to do it twice.

I appreciate boywonders insight about pricing, makes sense.

Im all ears, just trying to learn something. At the expense of your thread Flux (sorry)...

Don't worry about my thread, that's what it's here for and I have done the same to a couple others (Sorry Sweezy). Really, they are discussion threads.

I am a noob too, I am just a bit further ahead on the asking questions curve than you might be. I had the same reservations about committing to a 4x4 system. Agile's is unique in it's use of the TTB. For certain things, it is superior to many conversions and a lot of attention to detail is in it. Wait until you get down there, you'll see. Just be prepared for your an to transform!!

As far as the lift block?? I tend to think it's a minimal block and won't cause problems as it's a smallish lever on the springs and you will have more on there. Going all springs presents a different issue as it has to be worked out so as not to be too stiff. But I don't think it's a concern really. hundreds of thousands of lifted vehicles use blocks.

Keep asking the questions, but Agile is doing a great job with their system and I can't wait to beat on mine some more.

Depends on how hard you mash the pedal.
