do you already have some of the air ride stuff or are you just cleaning everything up while you save?
I don't have any of the stuff yet. I could get some bags for the front and my 4 link for the back. But then i am gona want to rush it to get it done.

The plan is to pull the motor this week sometime and then me and my friend are gona half and half on a sears sand blaster. Hopefully i can get the frame and the bottom of the cab blasted before it startes to snow here.

Yeah too bad cause im not gona use it and it works really good.

So Low Roller:
Exactly what i was thinking. I mean its all apart i might as well do it now cause i would be more work next time. And if i did BD it i would move the cab back so i could gain some firewall clerence.

BrianBlocks:
Yeah right, the weather people are already getting the winter woodies around here. yeah sure, you got a 5th wheel hitch?

Stencer: yeah your like on the other side of the state. there was a truck i was looking at that was in flint that was really nice. But someone picked it up before i could get there.

Well how much would you want to ship me the blower box? I really need one and I can't find one locally. You'd be shipping it to Knoxville TN, 37914.

I got about an hour on the truck today.
I got the main wiring harness all undone and everything labeled.
Got the Exhaust undone from the header also.
Removed the charcol canister out too.

About that though, there are 3 lines going from the back half of the truck to the front from the gas tank and charcol box. COuld soemone tell me what the functions of these lines are? Does the charcol line just use the fumes from the box and try to reburn them?







The plan is to pull the motor and trans out tomorrow and start dissasembling the font suspension componets so i can try to snad blast the frame this weekend.:)
