Finally got to put the wheels on it and roll it out yesterday after work. Its been alot of work to get to this point.. but not really done yet either. Im waiting on a shock stud to put them on.. they are painted pewter, and ive got another fuel line to run.. but im unsure of the size of the main fuel line fittings off the sending unit. Still needs plumbed.. wired.. but heres a list of what was done

ive had the truck since i was 16 and previous to me owning it.. it was a work truck.. It was rusted to shit when i started..lol

Front:
Pie cut uppers
Flattened and plated lowers
Power performance balljoints
Energy suspension shortened links
Notched frame for tie rod
Frame cut for a conti 2600
Raised and moved the downpipe back
magnaflow muffler
Airline ran through entire passenger framerail ( it was a whore to get past the gusseting.. )
Drivers side... not so much luck.. it will have to be on the exterior.. but no exhaust.. so no worries.
Bump stops cut and plated to gain another inch or so of lift. ( thanks 98layinframe for the good idea)
Jasons cups cut down to lay on 20's

Rear:
Jays 5 link
Conti 2600's
Raised gastank
Air Zenith w/ 2 5 gallon tanks.. probly run a max of 175-180 PSI
SMC 1/2" valves.. ( not installed obviously )
Homemade front lift bar brackets to replace the stock hangars
Homemade tank brackets and tank support to bring them closer to the rear, so they stay more hidden
Hidden airline.. ( stayed routed through the notches )

Misc:
POR-15
all new brakeline
Stainless braided feul line
New slotted/drilled rotors
Powdercoated calipers ( 3 weeks and waiting... )
Relocated battery to in front of rear wheel..
My little bit of tubing work there w/ the spikes..
Smoothed and bodyworked welds on the tubing and notches
other small dumb shit..

Onto the pics.. looks cooler in person and i suck at taking good pictures.. lol














Thanks again to all of you guys for helping me out and giving great information.. i didnt know shit about air suspension a 2 years ago.. i had never even seen a bagged truck. You guys rock.

Hmm can you get a straight on side shot of the frame up and all the way down?

And if at all possable with out the wheels on that side lol ( I know long shot)

If it is good I will use it for my animated chassis (Side shot!)

dang, that looks incredible! How much is that POR15? Is it brushed on? and does it have to be put on bare metal? I've been considering some for the frame on my s-10 for awhile now.

i got the POR-15 6 pack.. You can thin it out and spray it.. or brush it. The surface prep is pretty important w/ it tho.. you cant really cut corners. Worth the money i think though. It was about 40 dollars for what i bought.
