the above links show HD vehicles...look at the axles on the Jeeps...
aside from getting groceries, IFS trucks fall short. don't get me wrong, my
'95 GMC K1500 does me just fine for commuting, firewood, and farm supplies.
I went with a 1/2 ton for the soft ride and this particular truck had only
35K on it back in 2002 so I couldn't pass it up. however, if I was ever to
get a HD pickup, it would be a solid axle machine. HD and IFS don't belong
in the same sentence. I know you're talkin' steering shaft not suspension,
just thought I'd offer my $ .02. not even worth that!
