    Ok, I have finally had time to start on my truck. Going from a stock 87 longbed to a 6" all spring superlifted, M1008 axeled, 38.5x15x16.5 boggered reverse sport raked, nice iron headed 383 powered thing that it is now. Starting on the back today though so it shouldn't look this rediculous for very long.

    I know that some fender trimming is in my very near future...lol and i can see some eaton beadlocks coming soon too. I don't care for the 16.5x12 eagles that are on it.

    After the lifting is done, taking out the 700/208 and putting in the 400/208 that came from the same M1008. I already have the ORD steering box brace on it...very nice I might ad and the s/s brakelines too. Will most likely build some bumpers for it and maybe some rocksliders...even though don't plan on doing much rock crawling.

    I am excited...this will be the first big truck I have ever owned. I have always been a drag racing guy so going low was the object there. Anyways...just wanted to show off my dumbness as it is now...I just happened to have a camera handy and HAD to take a pic of it like this...


    UPDATE 11/20/06....

    The rear is done. Spring perches and shock mounts have been moved on the rear and the springs have been installed.

    The new tranny and converter are in. Need to bolt up the transfer case, driveshafts and new tranny cooler. New rear brake lines and front hubs then a good once over. Should be wheeling by this weekend. If so, will bring back some pics hopefully.
