Looks Good! Got any good shots of the front suspension? Is it stock/modified or what?

How did the rear ever turn out finished? I remember it was pretty trick when you posted pics a while back.

Re: Low 72 progress pics...

Looks good, love the trailing arm set up they built for you. What are you going to do for the inside of the bed floor to cover things up?

Re: Low 72 progress pics...

The front end is a bolt in Porterbuiltstreetrods.com drop crossmember with a Mustang 2 rack.. I changed to 6 lug because I installed a 2003 Silverado rear end with disc brakes..
