Still working, got the lower control arms notched a little more. Front end put together. Mocking up where the valves are going to go. Ordered a new 5 gallon aluminum air tank. Need to make a mount for that, figure out where I'm mounting the compressors. Once that is figured out I will paint the 5 link and button up the rear end.

Did a little more mock up. Got the valve assembly figured out. Truck lays out now. New air tank should be here this weekend, and will get that mounted. Gotta pull apart and paint exposed metal black.

Staying with the shell. Leaves me more options when I upgrade the sound system. Just keep checking craigslist. I found this one for 100 bones.

So truck isn't fully laying out yet. Need to do some work on the stock tubs. It's about 1/2" from laying. Bringing it to a car show this weekend. Then it's remove stock tubs and use new tubs to lay. Do front shocks. Do rear tubs. Since I'm sticking with 15s maybe 16s rear tubs will be smaller then stock. So will gain a little more room. I'm going with old school rims. I like the 90s look, plus I will daily drive so more rubber sounds better to me. I'm also thinking about adding slow downs on the dumps. The 3/8s valves and 1/2" line is quick. It's nice if lifting if anything is in the road. But sucks coming down.

Truck made its maiden voyage. 4 hr drive, and no mechanical issues. Only issue I had is it rained for an hour and I have no ac, and there is 1 foot section for the blow through that's not sealed so you get the heat from the transmission. Plan is to get back from the show and do bed metal work, and change the accordion boot out (it's sitting on the floor in the garage).

since I'm running smaller tires 9I like the look of a 235/60 r15) I'm running a smaller tub. It's going to give me more room between fender and front of need for a bigger subwoofer box.
