    That looks bad a$$!!! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    This is my favorite part of any truck build up....the frame off restoration. I've always loved to see others projects, especially the frame and axles along with the lift, all painted up and looking good for the engine, tranny, etc. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif

    BTW, give us the details on everything in the pic. Gears, brand of lift, amount, the shock brackets, EVERYTHING!! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

Zero rates 1"back in rear, shock brackets I made myself as well as the draglink and tie rod , rear upper mount and 3rd shock mount, it's realy turnin' out sweet, just costin' a little more than I was plannin on spendin' everything but the motor is gettin gone through but the motor..........HMMMMMM.........I think I might need to put a new 383 HT in it!!!

    Safty wire is a good mod to do. I can not tell you how many bolts and nuts I find loose after a wheeling trip.

    /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gifLooks real good guy. I like seeing that level of work, even though you're probably gonna go out and get it dirty and run the snot out of it! You know it's built right, and problems will be few, if any. Good luck!
