Re: Project. The most expensive and longest way possible to build a truck

so once i got home with that project i immediately started to tear into it.. the truck came with a hotrods to hell rear suspension setup on it. i cut that off and sold it along with the fiberglass frontend that came with that. once i got those out of the way i ordered a step notch kit and airbag setup (2 viar 400 compressors, 2 5 gal tanks, 2 slam specialities bags for the rear, 2 art cool ride bags for the front, and an 8 valve manifold.. i installed the notch, painted the frame, painted the tanks red a little more red than the picture shows

Re: Project. The most expensive and longest way possible to build a truck

truck was great, but i committed blasphemy.. i ruined the paint. we started blocking it down yesterday (there is no turning back) im going black with this one.. i always wanted black, and even though i though that blue was awesome, i know that if i got the truck done, and didn't go with the color that i always wanted then i would kick myself..


heheh i suckered 2 of my friends into "hanging out" little did they know lol
