Re: crew cab short bed build " clifford"

Looking really good man, it's going to be nice once you get it all painted, together and lowered some more.

Re: crew cab short bed build " clifford"

Thanks man, wish it was going faster but I don't want to rush it either. Thinking about doing a different front crossmember to alter the geometry a bit.

Re: crew cab short bed build " clifford"

I got both fenders ready to shoot tomorrow. All the doors but one is ready for final prime. But my right front door ended up having to much rust in the shell to jack with, so i ordered a new door. It came in wasted, so i will have another one monday.
Hopefully i can shoot the doors next weekend, then all i will like is the hood, which i dont have yet and the tailgate.

I also got my dropped spindles in this week, and picked up a set of leaf sping pads to do the flip on the rear. I also got new ball joints too.

Question for some of you DIY flip guys. How far does the rear need to go back after flipping? 1" or 2"?

Pics tomorrow.

Re: crew cab short bed build " clifford"

I might have a DRW tail gate with the lights on it if you're interested. That's great progress on the body work. Sucks to hear about the wasted door. But you're probably used to seeing that happen in your field. But it still sucks, even when it's yours. Been there done that.

Thanks Ryan. But i'm not crazy about the tailgate lights. Besides the taligate that came off of this truck is super nice.
Yea i see more than my share of damaged parts. Looks they kicked them to the shop instead of caring them in a enclosed truck

I put mine in the center, but I don't have a driveshaft yet so I can have mine made to fit. If I remember correctly most flip kits move the rearend 5/8" rearward, for what I understand to keep the existing driveshaft.

Since it's not dropped yet, pull a measurement now to use & just recenter.

I'll have to clone myself to go any faster and that's a scarry thought.

I have 3" drop spindles for the front and doing a flip on the rear. I have already put 2" drop springs in the front, though i think it dropped it about 3" instead and also 3" shackles in the rear, they may have to come off. I guessing 6-8 total, maybe more?
