Here she is. After many of your comments I decided to stay with the stock mint green. She still needs her bead locks and flatbed. I hope to fit 35s or so without a spring over. I know I will get there but one thing at a time. So far she has a 350 and 4 wheel disc with an SM420 and painless kit on the garage floor. I am so excited I keep soiling myself!

That looks fantastic. I love the stock color.
35's without a springover? Shouldn't be a huge problem with no rear to worry about (flatbed). 4" springs will probably cut it.

Nice job so far. <IMG SRC="smilies/wink.gif" border="0">

Hmm....I might know where ya can get some beadlocks... <IMG SRC="smilies/wink.gif" border="0">

Nice truck, Mike!! I think you can get by with a 4" lift and ext'd shackles to comfortably clear 35's. I know 1 guy that had Alcan make him a set of 5" springs for his FJ40 - flexed like crazy.

Good luck with the build up.

Nice work....and the stock color rocks!!!!! Ditch the small block though...find a goog 2F and you'll be happy. 4" springs and a slight shackle you'll be able to run 35's no problem. Keep up the good work! <IMG SRC="smilies/smokin.gif" border="0">

Mike I picked up the bed on Sat and checked out your truck looks great What is the Brake set up at the master and booster? You did a very clean job of that set up. Are you running a 4 speed or three I didn't look under it to see.
Thanks again I am very happy

Roger,I am glad all is well with the bed. I had mixed emotions about selling it. Sorry that I was not there when you came. We managed to raise $34,600 in one day for the NY Firefighter relief fund. Northern Nevada should be able to put together over $500,000 for the families! The brakes are Wardens adapter, 84 mini booster and an 86 1 inch bore master. Most of the lines will come off this week. I am replacing all of the hard lines. I will be removing the vacuume transfer stuff from the firewall so I can run cleaner looking lines with residual valves. The proportioner will also be moved to the firewall. I have a 73 3 speed tcase and an sm420 ready to go. When you get time send some photos of you rig. By the way, that bumper was for you also. Keep us posted!

I have posted these 33 X 9.50 wild country tires in the 4 sale section. Less than 500 miles. These fit great with my stock suspension. I have my eye on 35 X 12.50 BFG muds on my new Bead locks! No bed to worry about! How about $350? Offer? <IMG SRC="smilies/bounce.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/bounce2.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/bounce.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/bounce2.gif" border="0">
