    Thanks all!!!

    My plans are first to be able to drive it again... it's been torn down for almost 2 years now... Then I'll throw 4" of lift, and determine tire size at that point. It's mainly going to be a hunting and fishing vehicle, but there will be a rubicon trip or two for her...

    It sure does look like the motor is low, but it all went back in the stock locations... no body lift either so I think it just looks that way without any fenders or hood on...

    Thanks again for the compliments!!! I wouldn't be as far as I am now if it wasn't for everyone here at CK5.com!!!!

    YELLOW! I like it I think theres only one shade of yellow that looks good and you seem to have it. BTW I really like how you used the same color on your engine and on the rest of the truck nice touch :D

    Looks *very* nice. One day I'll have the time/money to redo a truck from top to bottom.
