well Prescott is high desert and it's subject to a lot of rain and storms in the summertime Phoenix is more of a regular desert I prefer Phoenix over here I think Tuscon is pretty nice as well. If you like the desert skip Prescott and you definitely don't want Flagstaff
I just spent an hour in the backyard with the weed eater knocking down all the grass that's been growing from the monsoon storms when I should be working on the trucks
Anyway if you're dead set on Prescott Valley Arizona send me a private message and I can give you info so you can make an informed decision

I don't know why they consider this High Desert actually it's really not there's lots of trees around here and it's not that dry. Last year was quite a bit drier than this year but we get snow in the winter time and it freezes every night till about Mother's Day you get two months of really hot weather and then it gets weird Phoenix is a lot more consistent and very nice in the winter time like 75 to 85 degrees but in the peak of Summer Phoenix gets as hot as120

Will do, we're going to be in Flagstaff for new years then a few days down in Prescott. Flagstaffs elevation is a little to high for my tastes and Phoenix is too low, Would love to move to Sedona but way too peopley for my tastes.
Idaho is on the list too but haven't spent any time up there so more reconnaissance is planned

Yes I used the Skyjacker drop pivot brackets to lower the traction beam pivot point and then 5" RSK kit to flip the shackles to the rear and lower the leaf spring mounts. And drop pitman arm of course.

Flag and Prescott are way different. Another goofy thing is they can't say the name of this town right and it's people that aren't from here but claimed to be locals
They say press-kit not press-cott. It is really annoying and there are tons of them here.
Black canyon city is off 17 between here n Phoenix about 3000 feet. I'm at 5200 in Prescott Valley. Presscott is 5500 or so. Housing is high here compared to most of Arizona. I would look in Utah or Nevada before here. We have family in sun City or we would probably still be in Seattle

How much would that cost to do to mine. I have the leafs now.

It costs a little bit of money. Would Have to look on Skys website. The best way to go on an OBS is the 05+ axle swap.

05 Dana 60?
I just found some interesting stuff on my passenger side outer tie rod end and adjusting sleeve I knew that they had forced a sleeve on the drag link that was the wrong one and had the driver's side tie rod end over there so I finally got the parts and it turns out they stuck 2 wheel drive steering suspension on this truck for a 2 wheel drive 250 at least according to oreilly that was the only way we could find the correct one so I got it installed now and I'll be able to actually take my truck in for an alignment now before I couldn't align it because the sleeve just tracked up and down because the threads were exactly the same maybe it's just some goofy thing for 1997 but we had to look it up underneath a 97 F250 HD 2 wheel drive diesel there are two other sizes one was bigger and one was smaller this truck is just a basket case of mixed up crap what I really need to do is have my own personal junkyard at the rate this is going before ill have one good truck
