sorry. i didnt mean to come across rude. and the junk comment...i left to message for a sec and my buddy wrte that. those trucks are sick when they are slammed. but all im saying is if you take the time to do everything now and right then you wont have problems with it down the road and you wont have to tear it apart again to do the other stuff to it and if you do it now then it will be more awesome when your done.

it's not that he's going to start cutting corners, he's doing everything right, he's just not doing all the modification that he originally intended. Everything that has been and is going to be done is going to be done proper if I've read the plans correctly.

Yeah my uncle had one of these and if you dont slam them and have too many horsepower for your own good, they are peices of shit and they are useless. Also, if you dont sink at least $50,000 they are useless and you may as well just not drive.

Soo is this thread dead?

I wouldn't call it dead, but I wouldn't hold my breath for updates.

It sat untouched since December and only this past week did I go out and clean up the back wall of the cab and primered the dashboard. We've been waiting 4 months to get a set of machined sleeves to start working on the control arms and they only arrived 2 weeks ago. Hopefully we can get back on this thing in the near future.

So the truck has headed off in a different direction for the sake of getting it out of the garage. Coilovers have already been acquired along with some 15x8.5 -16 wheels. The test fit is promising for the wheels.

didn't you originally have 18's or 19's and having it bagged?

Bagged on 18s but it was too low to clear them.

The truck was parted out at the beginning of the summer. The cab and frame were picked up by someone so to the best of my knowledge the truck is still somewhere out there
