Re: Jesses' 48 PU

Good morning to all, Merry Xmas!!!
well at least i feel like its christmas, im like a 5 yr old on xmas day, opening box after box. I received my TCI leaf spring kit, my Pirate Jack brake booster/master cylinder kit, my Raptor bedliner kit (which ill use to spray underneath the cab, running boards and inside the fender wells)
and to make things even better, the guy whom i took the chassis to have it blasted and painted, called me last night saying it was ready!!!!

So back to work!!!!

Re: Jesses' 48 PU

Hey Bam, we've been dormant for a while, but now that im getting parts in and chassis ready, its back to working on it.
I decided to chunk the Explorer leaf springs I bought. After sleeping on it over and over, i decided that the rear suspension was not a good place to take shortcuts or chances. So I went ahead and ordered the TCI Kit. This way i know im square and straight, figured if I didnt, I would probably spend the money I saved in tires every six months. Besides, im sure ill find deals on other areas. So far, Ive been lucky with Craigslists finds, so no complaints.
Ill definately keep the pics coming and I appreciate your words of encourgement, they always hype me up.

Jesse49chevy, Looks like you are getting there. I too always love when the UPS truck drops off truck parts. Keep up the great work.

Re: Jesses' 48 PU

Sounds like a plan, man i like your bike, i was thinking about painting mine a flat black and pin stripping it, its the idea i have for my truck as well, so kinda match with each other.

Blasted and painted some more suspension parts. Should start bolting things back together next week. I bought some Black Diamond media blast, works great, less messy than sand, no dust and if you filter it, it can be reused several times.

Well after a few weekends of sandblasting and painting, i finally got to bolt on the front suspension. The springs were tricky, but with a little mexiCAN elbow grease, i got them in.
