Jimmer,
I have found myself quoting your signature a few times since the first time I read it. Very cool.

Back on track. Torsion bars are for trailers.

Me too, and alot more if it had a straight axle in the front. They are DONE when they put a IRS in them, after seeing them still put IFS in a 1 ton, it would not surprise me they put it out back.

I must say, I am impressed with the suspension and set up of the New Arctic Cat 500 quads. Locked rear end, selectable locker front, and 4 wheel independent suspension, it is the only way to get true 4x4 any more from a factory. Rides nice. Im just glad I don't have to tow with it or drive on the highway. Off road it has that GM plush ride.

Although the LS in my truck works great for added traction. Very limited slip. Ordered it that way. It doesn't like turning a hard corner in 4WD being as long as it is and the LS in the back, makes the front tires curl over. Especially in LOW.

Anybody with a Diesel on here ever put an exhaust or any other type of system on there rigs and get any durability out of them. I know people that put kits on, brag about the power and the gains, but get rid of them before I have an opportunity to see the durability behind them.

well, my cummins had 200k on it when I put exhaust/k&n/new turbine/new (bigger)injectors in it, and haven't had problem one with it. Did it all myself, only complaint after 50k is that it smokes some when cold, and smokes quite a bit when you are getting on it in 3rd/4th, (but I don't have to smell it!). Mileage stayed where it was, and driving it is like night or day, hauls boat with camper like it used to accelerate empty....hope this is what you were looking for!
