Finally ALMOST done

After working all summer off and on with the "Hell" truck, it is just about ready to hit the road. A few minor thiongs like getting the front stabilizer hooked up, rear wiring harness, then it is ready for exhaust and front end alignment. Then to get the back end dropped down. Would you believe I put a 3-4 drop on this truck and it still sits sky high. Oh well. Just glad to have it back together.

Nice truck.... I agree it still sits sky high..... The back end high doesn't look that bad though... put some big tires out back

Yeah, I agree.............Looks like a "Mans" truck........................Not one of those whimpy pavement draggers. Leave it just like it is.

Kevinnnn that's looking great!! Only thing that "could" be changed is the rear stance, it's just a taddddd bit too high for me but I would leave it as is. Big pain in the neck messin around with the rear suspension just to get maybe another inch or two drop. Keep us updated and I loveee the color!

re: Finally ALMOST done

Stance is all wrong. The "stance" should be a little down hill. My driveway will fix it fine. Really, it's a nice truck.

Just put a bag of sand in the back. That'll drop it down.
