    It\'s Done! Here are the pics!!!

    Here are the pics of my now "finished" truck![​IMG] The particulars are: 6" Tuff Country lift, General Grabbers 35x12.5x15, 14-bolt SF rear w/Detroit locker, 10-bolt front (open), 4.56 gears, JVC 12-disk changer, MTX sub with Sony 6.5" speakers and a 500-watt Profile amp.

    Let me know what you guys think! Special props go to Slodawg for the tire carrier, by the way. It works great, bro!

    The first was of the front, this one is from the driver's side...

    I apologize for the shadows, I am not much of a photographer...

    Passenger side front.

    These will be on my website soon, I just got them back and wanted to post them as soon as I could.

    Oh, and the rack is from a Ford Fairmont wagon that some heschers trashed and wound up in a junk yard. $14, works great!

    Lookin Good. Thanks for sharing the pics.

    I don't understand the "Done" thing. I didn't think any of these projects are every really "Done".

    They aren't. Mine's not either, hence the "finished" in quotes. I am going to put in a Dana 60 front eventually, as well as numerous other things. But the bank account says that it is "finished"--at least for a while! Besides, it is totally wheelable in its current state.

    It's Reno. I had to get up high, away from all of the Hot Rods that take over the streets every summer!

    I am not a big fan of T-buckets.

    Hey, cool truck man. What did you do to your 9.5" 14? I'm considering one for my Blazer, and want to know how strong it is compared to a D60 rear, and if there are any upgrades for it? Nice truck again man.

    I would also like some more info on the rear axle. Are you still running 6-lug wheels (did you convert an 8 lug axle to a 6 lug?).

    Re: It\'s Done! Here are the pics!!!

    No conversion was necessary at all. The 14-bolt SF came with six-lug wheels. What's cool is got HUGE brakes along with my axle, so now I can stop like a small car. Very cool. After about a week of driving, I must say I don't even notice the locker at all. I am very happy about the whole thing. If you have any moire questions, go ahead and drop me a line.
