New V8 Build

i had a thread started awhile ago but half my pics are gone.. so im just gonna start a new thread.

heres what i started with





took off all the body parts...





took out the motor and tranny, bought a cheap sandblaster and a couple bags of sand and cleaned up the frame. painted it flat black with some rust paint.



next started fabbing up motor mounts...



after the motor was in it was time for the tranny...








found a 3 taco cabs at a local wreck yard (thank god for the recall) so i picked the one with the sunroof..










pushed the frame back outside to put the cab on..









finally was able to find a rear end out of a 92 pre-taco...




back in the garage it went to do wiring, plumbing, etc.

also added some fenders and a hood just so it looked like a vehicle again...







then took it to my buddy's house to weld in the notch...











hacked up the 96 rad support so my 98 headlights would fit...





front end almost completely back together... didnt like it.





so i baked my headlights and then painted them white...



got my front bag brackets...



upper mounts installed.



lowers installed...



gonna be using a 8 gallon air tank..



triangulated 4 link...





Viair 380's..



RE-6's for the front and RE-7's for the rear..



bought an adapter off ebay so i could use a cone air filter to save some room



set the truck down for the first time with the bags in the front... also re-installed my headlights











and the front end with a white 4wd grille..



finally, heres my switches






will post more pics when i make more progress. and sorry the pics are so big

would you mind making a little more inclusive first post?

That is very impressive.
