TTB with coils

A lot of smaller trucks prefer to use coil springs and a TTB type axle. So my question is, does anyone know of a build where it has been done successfully?

I would guess the weight of the engine makes it less effective, but I also figured that may not be so.

I found this, but the site is under construction

Baja F250 Home

Additional thoughts?

If you go to that site on internet explorer (wont work with chrome or firefox) you can see how they built up the IFS with coilovers. Pretty neat.

It is worth it to check it out. They did some pretty thorough engineering using an F250 front frame mock up to get the travel and everything right.

That is too easy to be cool, c'mon.

Isn't the F150 axle a solid D44?
