Get out and drive the truck this summer and have some fun!
It sucks not being able to hear!

LWB trucks rule, if you don't think so measure your SWB!
After talking to tech support at Air Lift I have found out that the kit I need is 60811. Per the measurements I gave them. Ride height of truck inside spring and inside diameter of springs.

Re: What did you do to your truck today.The 3rd chapter

We drilled for moldings today. It went well. The mock-up is about there, a few simple things to do yet. I'm looking forward to tearing it down for paint. We'll have the body rebuilt December or sooner. It's almost close

Thanks! Yes, bending my own. It’s the NiCopp line and bends/flares amazingly easy. Using it makes me wonder why people use SS? I wrapped my lines in SS spring rock guard from inline tube and it gives the NiCopp a decent amount of rigidity. My previous experience bending SS was not so pleasant.

Haha! We are all in the same boat, plugging away. On occasion we see a few guys who are able to move along at a more rapid pace. I have found slowly moving along allows for better planning. You will get there, we all will. Slowly.

I had a shop in town do it. They probably got it from a local supply shop called Ranshu Parts Company. Alma Products 51-86262a is the brand, they have new and they reman them too.

Re: What did you do to your truck today.The 3rd chapter

What i did was go to my storage garage and do my mid Winter stare my truck and make sure she looks as good as when I parked her inside in October. Then came home and ordered my new steering wheel to replace the LeCarra one that is on the truck which I had on my pink /white truck as well. Got that LeCarra in 2006 so time for a change. I had my mind made up to get this one and the when the new original style 15 inch one came out I thought I might like that better but decided to stick with original plan.

Re: What did you do to your truck today.The 3rd chapter

Did a lot of little things, but the biggest one was I installed an HEI distributor.
Way too nice for my turd, but it runs like a champ

Drove it to get a bunch of wood and iron to replace a couple of old crumbling gates.
