    Looks good. I like the lift/tire combo, but I like trucks with lots of fender room ;)
    I like visors, both my trucks have them, is the visor you have lighted or not? Cause I could understand if it was the lighted moon visor, it would look weird, but I'd be curious to see what a non lighted visor with the factory cab lights would look like.

    Thats a pretty sick truck man, keep up the good work...oh and about those visors... i like them too but how long do you think one will actually last lol? I know that when i wheel ive got tree branches and **** hitting the window and roof all the time... pretty sure it would get busted up quick.

    I've gone through some trees and brush on trails before with my 77 and I haven't had a branch do any damage to its visor. They seem pretty thick to me, I'd think if a branch would bust your visor, your windsheild would be toast also.

    Looks good so far.

    It sort of reminds me of my old truck, although yours is a bit higher. Keep the cablights (I loved mine).. ditch the visor and use it's sale towards saving for the next round of build-ups .

    If you dont want the lighted visor, I'd either sell it or trade it with some one who has a non lighted, I know when I bought the moonvisor for my 85 it wasn't cheap. If I was closer I'd trade you for the non lighted visor on my 77 :D
