    Take a sawzall and cut off anything hagning around the truck that's uneeded off, old muffler hangers, unused brackets, whatnot. Shave the axles maybe... buff something...

    cut out interior stuff? Make it a shell. Help to shave weight and lower center of gravity. I know it won't really do much for center of gravity but hey every ounce you lose can't hurt can it?

    All good suggestions, however i did them all already. I am just to that point where I think I need parts and that is all I can do. Getting close I guess.

    I wish i could. would beat the hell out of this boredom. Guess I will go mount my on board shower that I built several months ago. Was waiting to mount it till I had more stuff finished. I will probably end up putting it right in the way and have to move it later.

    I ended up making a pencil holder for my desk out of the bowtie cutouts from my grill and some pull pins for my drop away shackles. Made the pins out of pegs that you see on the back of kids bikes. worked out pretty slick.

    do a search, there was a thread called something like "best free upgrades" or something... if I remember correctly is was a pretty extensive list.
