    There are 14 leafs in each front spring right now. But there might be still be enough to do the rear. We got a whole pile of spring leafs that I took apart from the CrashVan, StorageVan as well as my original springs. So 3 sets of springs in addition to the rear ones still on TreeVan. So there might be 7 more leafs laying around there to add to the rear ones. We might just need a couple of leafs,,,,,,,,,

    Comin around pretty good Donivan! Glad you got a lil inspiration to work on the Tree Van again.Sometimes its more theraputic than we realize.I'm in the steel bussiness also.It's crazy right now.
    Gonna throw you some 30's on there?Looks like you've got some pretty good ground clearance as it is.I was checkin out your spring set-up.You've got'em stacked & packed ! lol Keep up the great work.

    Some huge tires with low pressure and it might ride smooth, maybe. Looks like fun!
