AllGoNoShow Building my own headers, slim to none footroom, tight as hell inside and I am 5í9 175. Hope that answers all the questions.

I'm a dainty 6'1", 265lb'er. Reason and logic tell me to stick with the crew cab, but everything else says to build the 37. This thread may determine what happens.

AllGoNoShow,
How do you plan to run exhaust? I figured old school lakester headers might allow for more foot room, maybe less heat cooking you inside the cab. Doesn't look like you have that option though.

Really like everything about this. Keep us updated!

snowracer if you are talking about going fast and jumping it no sure if ORI's would be the best choice for that. from my understanding they are more for crawling and trail riding and dont like going fast. id be looking for used or cheap coil overs
11-28-2018 06:44 PM
AllGoNoShow Just cause.

AllGoNoShow Budget build with coils to oriís. Lesson of the day, donít finish weld shit till you know you are done. Black boogers for the next few days.

AllGoNoShow No I don't know anyone. I think I will just go on with this style, it is just metal, can change it down the road if I want.

Know someone with a tubing roller to put a mild curve in the top of the front bar? Kinda mimic the 30s Ford grille?
