    The grinding worked out pretty good, have to say that I had a 4" and promptly went and bought a 7" to finish it up. LOL.

    If you ain't hurt, you ain't playin' hard enough.

    Very nice truck Mr General Sir. !!!! [​IMG]
    Kinda have the Darth Vader look going with the truck.. I like it..
    As for Grinding.. I did a bunch of grinding on my Dana 44 to get my 15 inch wheel's to fit.. but it was all worth it..
    Congrat's on BoTM..

    Congrats on truck of the month Joel. I wish the trip would have worked out the other week so I could have seen it in person.

    See <a target="_blank" href=http://coloradok5.com/gallery/Waynes-Toy>Project Mighty Mouse</a> here.

    New I would take some heat on the wood ramp, but had to get it built very soon to check travel for shocks and binding. LOL. Sapper helped me build it. He is an engineer with the Corps, so she should withstand about anything.

    I love the wood ramp! I commend your ingenuity! BTW - I think that he Heculined the ENITRE truck! [​IMG]

    Way to go General! I think that your truck deserves all the attention, that thing is sweet! Only one comment - I wish that I bookmark your page whenever someone refernces it. I've been there a few times, but I can never find it later. Could you place the URL to your site in your personal information so I could follow the progress? I love your site for cool ideas for my truck...

    Thanks man! Freakin' great job on the truck!

    I was going to suggest to Steve that The General be Blazer of the month. I couldnt get on the site last week on Friday. Good Job General! That rig looks awesome. I like the blacked-out idea, it looks mean. Looks pretty flexy too. Give us some specs.
