    Just wondering what you guys are doing to your trucks over the winter. my winter projects are
    1. Narrow my front clip (take 7inches out of each side) which thanks to Jason(cornfed) its pretty much done.
    2. make my wheel well openings bigger.(trying to make room for 44s)
    3. put in a Mojave heater
    4. new motor (383)
    5. take out headlights and put some Hella 6inch round driving lights in their place.
    6. and if I have money left over get it painted.
    All of the body mods are pretty much done but the front clip is still off so I can swap the motor easier. I hope to be done by the first of the year but you guys know how projects end up taking a lot longer than you thought.

    Dang that sounds like a morph job on an already awesome truck!

    Me..........not much, just enjoying driving the Burb. Pretty much done for now.........it's lifted and has 35" X Terrains, front end is completely rebuilt, all new ball joints, brakes, etc. Might be thinking about a 14BFF (has a 14BSF now) with 4.88's and a Detroit but not till spring/summer. Keep us posted on the progress!

    I need to put mine back together! /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif Mine is my daily driver and will be used to tow a camp trailer, so I am building a road friendly / trail capable rig. I hope to do a S-10 conversion once i get the /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif done. That will take awhile though!

    I'm in the process of ording a doubler from Staz Werks.
    My old rear springs are going to make it to the front.
    The bender is set up and currently I have 60' of 2" and 20' of 1.5"(making up some bumpers and eventually get 1.75" die and cage it)
    Depending on just how lazy I get I'm realy thinking about finding some coils that will work for the rear and linking it.
