    It does not have a LDS. It has the cummins in it. I think from all the great information I received that I will be going with the lighter springs on the rear only. Jim

    Bob 5 ton with 2.5 hardware?

    I have a 5 ton flatbed I want to bob. I was wondering if it was possible to bob it with 2.5 ton parts. I was thinking if they fit, it would provide a slightly softer ride. I dont need to be able to haul heavy loads, so I wouldn't mind a loss in carrying capacity. Thanks for any help...

    M817 from Barstow, Military disabled brakes
