    Where are you going to get the welding done? What are you welding up? Just curious because I hope you aren't paying a bunch of money for somebody to weld up your stuff. I have a welder.

    You know you have gone big when your 37" spare looks like a space saver.:eek1:

    I'm having the rear shock mounts welded and having the tab put on my new tie rod for my full hydro steering:pimp:

    I figured there'd be a lot more hacking of the sheetmetal to clear them. Not to bad once the inners went away huh?

    Looks are deceiving I have cut alot out of the fenders. Alot more room for tires once the inner linners are gone.

    Did you get your 60 installed??

    You wouldn't happen to have any pics of your shifter area would ya? I'm thinking about an Art Carr for my 74 and just curious how it would look.

    Thanks

    Hey Bo, you won't have to donkey punch anything anymore, an awesome truck just got more so! Are those the tube door you were going to sell me? I'm ready to ride up 21 road again or maybe I will figure out where Dye Trying and Calamity Canyon are west of Montrose. I think Toby comes over to run them so maybe he can give us directions.

    That would be a friend of mine that did it. Matt Nunn, he also did my cage in the 86 k5.
