Nice build man, The truck looks real clean, You should start a build thread too
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
Ford 9" is a good choise for a rear end thats what we were gunna run but then we changed to a chevy axle...
Great job , Keep it up the more you do the more you learn. I am in the middle of my first build and still learning. Good Luck !
thanks for the input, its appreciated
No problem man

At 13, that's some hot action right there RR. I can't wait to see what it looks like by the end of summer!
I'm glad I'm not the only one feeling that way right now.
