I've seen a few 2wd Dakotas and one Durango that have wider upper and lower arms, and most of them are running a coilover too. Any idea who is building these arms? The Glassworks site has an example of what I'm talking about. Prerunners.com also has a picture of a white Dakota, owned by someone by the name of Charles, anybody know him or know if he as an e-mail?

Thanks.

Anyone have any PICS of the BK Fabworks Dodge stuff? Am I correct in assuming that the black Durango on Glassworks site is the BK built Durango?

Thanks Kreg, appreciate the response.

Also, does anyone know what kind of travel that durango/dakota kits are pulling?

You may beat me in the flats, but watch out in the whoops! ! !

The white Dakota pics were taken at Laughlin and he is from the San Diego area. I belive he is a regular on SDPrerunners.com. I think he built it all himself.

Actually the white dodge that hangs with Chance from SD prerunners had his truck built by Glen at GR Fabrications in Chula Vista, on the same street as race ready. It looks really good, but i think for the money that he spent, it needs to be set-up a bit better, and get more than 15" of travel. Just my .02

How much was it? 15" of travel on stock mounting points sounds pretty good to me, unless you want to extend the hell out of the arms.

just my .02

When I was talking to him he said around 6k, and the lower arms looked really good, but for that much, I think that the pivot points could have been moved.

I havent seen the truck but 6k seems pretty fair for an A-Arm coilover set-up, fabbed and installed by a reputable shop. 6K is a decent price for a coilover front end on an I beam truck and I beam trucks are cheap(er) to build.
