    Sweet dude! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    This makes me smile. My truck started out exactly the same way. d44/12b w/3.08's. TH350/NP203, tiiired small block 350, 31's. Looked GAAAYY. /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif Now I'm on my second "build", about 2 1/2 years after igot it...this is how it sits now-
    [​IMG]

    Just keep workin at it dude...No joke that CK5 does wierd things to ya. 3 years ago, if someone told me I would be cutting up perfectly good fenders with a sawz-all just to make bigger tires fit, and removing the hood and fenders for good, I woulda looked at them like they were from Mars. lol...Its a sickness. Keep us updated on the trucks progress. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I didnt comment much on my setup, running 4" tuff country EZ rides in the front, ORD greasable complete front, ORD HD shackles,ORD quick discos, ORD steering box brace, Azz-Kickin rear disc brackets on the 14ff disc.... 4" rear blocks which will disappear soon as i can feel axle wrap, 4.10's a 465 and a 330hp 350 roll it a bit

    Very well spent beer money....Probably makes the grades better along with some self discipline - which will really pay off down the road....Nice job /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    yeah, still had the additional cost of beer money from all the time spent working on it. Yeah grades havn't been affected much by this thing, i dropped the project cold for 2 weeks to handle work and tests
