I welded 3 inch long pieces of tail pipe to the upper spring seats, and tiewrapped the spring to the lower ones. You need the full travel of the axle drop to remove the wheels/tires in case of a flat.

Not sure what you're getting at. All of those things are independently powered or I am going to hard-wire it. The CB radio is just for fun for the 2 weeks worth of driving, won't take that long to install, and if I ever get tired of it I'll just take take it out. The radar detector is just extra insurance and the GPS is for when we're in dead zones that won't get cell service. You call it outdated, I call it covering my butt.

A cell phone isn't going to cut it for 10+ hours of driving a day.

Nice score. Any wagons remotely that cheap where I am are falling apart. Enjoy!

I also think radar detectors aren't worth much, but if it saves you once, it's basically paid for.
