Well the truck is paid off now, and although I haven't been posting about it, it is not sitting at idle.
To start, here is how it currently sits on studded snows and 4 sandbags in the back =/
Now remember those wheels I bought before? Here they are after being powder-coated black.
They were supposed to be black chrome, but they came out blackish-gunmetal. Whatever, for free I have freshly powdercoated wheels. With my refund check, I am looking at a set of 285-40-17s for the rear, 255-40-17 for the front in nitto nt555.
Now in case you havent noticed, I'm not into bagging anything really, I'm more of a speed guy. And this open rear-end just isn't cutting it haha. This weekend I'm picking up a second rearend, to have the tubes fully welded on, put an aluminum girdle cover on, some camaro discs, 3.73s, and this piece...
Brand new Auburn Posi that the fiance grabbed of the bay for $220, an excellent deal seeing as these go for $400 usually. Between this rear and the new tires, traction should be less of an issue, to plant some more power I have planned.
I don't have pics of it, but I also grabbed a roll-pan, and have this from my old truck:
Both will be painted come spring along with a cowl hood I have waiting for me.
Also, thanks to deathpheonix, I have a quad-beam and direct battery power so they are BRIGHT now.
I also took the red leds out of the cluster, and put white ones in(hopefully pics later)
I graduate in 10 weeks, and I'm getting married June 1st 2013- so I'm trying to do as much to the truck as I can, but I have plans putting some things on hold haha. This summer I'm lowering it, painting those couple of things and respraying the front valence because of some scratches from the p.o., and throw on my toneau.
Its coming together, piece by piece, so let me know what you think!
and 3k posts woot!
