body work takes for ever especially, when you are doing it by yourself.

Well hell the only reason to do all that shit is you you have a competition buggy. But your junk is sweet. Loojs real good. The only thing i have to say is that i know a guy with a k20 and hes running 60 front and rear on 40's and hes blown his rear end a couple times. Just a thought.

open diffs, and 60 rear might be ok keep a trusty 14ff in the area if u like the skinny pedal. nice work on the bumper going into the fender protection going into the sliders/steps. good design. makes me want to narrow my cc and do something like that. did you take a bit of the rocker panel away for the sliders?

So i bought this truck around March. I picked it up off Craigs List, It was a PILE but i got a super good deal and it had a bunch of good parts. It came with a built 383, full roller, 202 vortec heads, March serpentine set up, Dana 60 front and rear, with ARB'S, 4.56 gears, 35 boggers and built th350/205. My plans were to wheel the crap out of it. I took it out and wheeled it one time and realized it needed to totally be gone through. So I started hacking all the junk off and stacking up parts.

This is how it sits right now. doors and hood are back on. I ordered some bed liner to do around the fenders, rock slider and bumpers. also i am going to line the inside as well. The liner i got is called armadillo liner. I have never used it hopefully it is a good product.

Nice green. I painted a Camaro a shade just like that a while back. Should pop out in the sun!
