I bought the kit from a guy that lost interest in the project he had. I believe it is a complete kit from ART but mine is a bit old and has the old company name.
Everything was complete and works great.
Thanks for the comments.

IMO I would go with porter. For me it was the best money spent on my project. I just wish I went with the dropmember but at the time money was tight and I didn't budget for all of the extra parts so I had to make a sacrifice.

Thanks for the comments

Thanks a bunch. It's getting there one bolt and nut at a time.

I will have some more updates soon. I am working on the interior pieces and misc items to get it ready for paint and final wiring. Hopefully it will be moving under it's own power by spring time.

I am leaning towards keeping it flat black. I originally wanted it the new Lexus blue with black wheels but I got a good deal on the Boss wheels so I went with those. I may keep it flat black for a while than in a few years blow it apart and make it a show truck.

Are we ever really done?? I think this one is going to go on and on like the energizer bunny.

Cool. I like the flat black. I have a 68' SWB that I will be building for my son once my 72 is done and he also wants flat black w/flames. You have done a great job. I'll be following your build, just don't keep the pictures from us for too long. We are all a bunch pic junkies.

Heymoe where did you find the BFG KDW's in 285/40/18. I can't locate them in that size I can only find them in 275/40/18. Thats all they list on their website too.

Re: My First

I got them from tire discounters. They ordered them in but it only took a couple of days.
I wouldn't think they would have discontinued that size already but who knows.
I just checked them again and they are 285/40/18 so I am not sure why you cannot located them.
