"Bye Driver Grill"????? lol, j/k. Looks like it's gonna be a fun one. Atleast yours looks clean underneath. That always makes things so much easier.

How big is that shop/garage? Looks like it's kinda tight in there. Mine's in a little shop that barely gives me room to work around my reg cab. It sucks ass but it's cement and indoors (and borrowed, lol) so I aint complaining.

Re: Djleighk's Bodydrop 01' Ext Cab 5 Speed

i think what GET LOW means by flipping the master cylinder is by mounting the master cylinder under the dash board and just run your lines through the firewall... it would clean things up alot! Or you can just get a cute chrome 7" booster like i did, cleans it up and looks nice! just make sure you get dual diaphram if you get a chrome 7" booster/ cylinder

Re: Djleighk's Bodydrop 01' Ext Cab 5 Speed

Ok well i got 4 of the 8 actaully done but what i did do im happy i did. I decided not to remove the upper arms untill im ready to put in the new ones just so the new sd ones dont get all scratched up and shit. but i got some good progress done today I think. I didnt get the crossbars welded up either but i did clean the frame where they will be welded in so thats no biggie to do. I got the headliner out, old cracked tank out, got the rubber padding off the firewall, got most of the grinding done besides the firewall. and I made my first cut so not to bad for a days work i dont think.. CHECK IT OUT...







New Tank



























I thought this was a cool pic. Gotta rep the Altered Dynamics


Bought these today from silverstar
