    i was thinking about it, it would just be a bunch of pics though, the entire truck came to me in carboard boxes. every single bolt was out of the thing, so im customizing and figuring out all the original stuff at the same time.

    im looking to run something similar to the ford 9" and i am working on the templates to increase the size of the humps above the axle and use either coil-overs or straighter leaf springs
