    Just got a roll of pics back yesturday. It's been up and running for a few weeks - still addin parts and fixin problems. Just got the 33x12.5 BFG ATs (Im mostly a road warrior), however no pics yet. This week, 1" 0-rate spring to level the back, find some seat belts that match, and get the carb properly tweaked.

    Looks great! Curious... did you paint it all in pieces and then assemble? ... and can you still drop out your exhaust? The crossover looks perfect and the skidpan should come in handy for those pesky road-warrior situations (i.e.; flying IFR through that import car turbulence on I-45...) [​IMG]

    RestoRod, yes I did have it painted in pieces. It worked great to have nice clean lines and no overspray, BUT lining up all the body parts is no fun....I have a couple of new chips and scratches in my new paint. The exhaust will pull out from the header collectors, but to pull the whole thing out, the pipes would have to be cut behind the mufflers.

    SWEET TRUCK! That's almost the same color I'm going to paint my rig. Extremly clean job you did there.

    Yes, put your ear up to the monitor. VVVRRRRRRRUMMMM! Just kidding, well they have that nice (my opinion) flowmaster tone. Nice mellow idle, but on my 383, they are fairly quiet, just a little louder than a stock exhaust system, but great tone. I tell ya what if that's what you want, I'll sell em. They only have 150 miles on em and I would rather have 3 chamber (50series) on mine.

    I don't know which ones I have, but they set off car alarms when I go by. I am to old for this. I've had them for about three years and I am going to change. I think a little more research is in order. I am running off of a 383 bored .60 over. It is very hot. I was running turbos, but they would'nt last kept blowing a hole in them. I am not sure what I am going to do.

    Tell me how much you want for them. I will consider. They are 70 series right?

    Dude! That looks killer! I love the blue paint on everything. The engine compartment looks sweet and I dig the blue painted tranny and t-case.
