Here are some Pictures
I used a no limit kit in my truck went in nice I did have a clearance issue with the disk brakes but we worked it out. truck looks great! keep at it nothing more fun that working on things in the garage with friends!
What did you end up doing when the wheels i dont think im going to clear with the 12"
Also what stearing setup did you do?
Did you really use Valspar on those wheels? Cause they look freakin' awesome!!!
Dang, it looks like powdercoating!!! Nice job! I'm closely watching this build!
I took the rims down to bare metal with a grinder thin i was going to take to powder coat but one of my wheels is a inch bigger this the rest so i just caned them tell i find that rim!
They look really good!
The tires i got brand new from a guy across the street from my house he had them up in his rafters there from 1960 and have no CRACKS
I paid $100 for them they did the JOB!!
Fist off i want to thanks everyone that's a part of my Build and everyone following my build!
We got a lot done over the weekend we would of had the truck on the ground Friday night BUT I WOULD LIKE TO THANK
No Limit Engineering
For not making that happen due to MISSING A LOT OF PARTS as for the NO LIMIT KIT i really like it but as for the customer service over at NO LIMIT sucks big time the very first day i called to order the kit the OWNER ROB was having a bad day and starting to yell at me when i was asking him why should i go with your kit and not a FATMAN he started to yell at me saying rude stuff like go with fatman why do you call over here if you want a fatman just all kinds of rude stuff
So i gave him a 2nd chance and called back 2 weeks latter to order his kit he started off nice but when i got my kit all kinds of thing where missing so i called him back they said it would ship the day off got it about a week latter! His kit comes with customer service but every time i call to ask about something he is very rude!
So Friday i had my Welder come to the house we got everything in very excited to get this thing on the ground but i started looking for some more parts that i didnt get from him we got the spindles on thin went to put rotors on but the spindle nuts and washer was missing so there goes laying it on the ground Friday night so i started to look at Robs check list there was a lot of parts still missing i called him sat morning nothing so this morning i called him and was telling him what happend he was still yelling at me told me it was FedEx fault didn't even say sorry!!
FROM WHAT I SEEN WITH NO LIMIT I WOULD NEVER EVER BUY THERE KIT IN MY LIFE TIME THERE REALLY RUDE AND WHO WANTS TO BE GETTING A KIT WITH MISSING PARTS AND FIND OUT WELL YOUR IN THE MIDDLE OF A BUILD!
Im all about customer service and NO LIMIT customer service sucks!!!
Missing parts list from day of shipment
This will be his 2nd shipment after the first one the first shipment should of had everything!
-Lower Shock Mounts Still haven got them its been about a week,
5th Shipment is what i called in today,
-Lower Arm brace. NOW i have to call Welder back over for this one!
From what i seen from no limit is that there bad business!!!
No Limit, Fatman or TCI? - I wish i would of went with FATMAN!!
With that said,

Here are some pictures.
