    Hey I figured I've been here long enough to start a build thread :notsure:

    Well it started in 06 I graduated high school worked all summer turned 18 and put a down payment on a 06 DC SB "pee"runner
    l_607691b1cea81b5705d5e54ab0bb296e_734b5ebd99470cb5c6e7740d2aa22b7342e5113e.jpg

    Couple years later and a sweet spacer install took the annual trip with the family to Cal-City. Nailed a woop at 45 and a loud clunk followed by my truck leaning one way really hard. Turns out spacer lift cause your truck to bottom out on the shock instead of the bump stop lesson learned. Did it on bottle jacks and one shitty stand :cool:

    About 6 months later got tired of having my truck in one piece so me and a buddy deiced to do a run at about 10 in the rain and the mud was GREASY AS FUCK. He slid off the road in 4wd I had no chance I followed and bamo!

    Then the insurance paid for everything and some extras
    Glassworks fender w/ caps blended and DR coilovers
    P1011977_d98900b5ba850c28e88c57ed3791167c830e96aa.jpg

    Buddy got a glass hood and he built a bumper

    Loved my mid travel set-up

    1 year later I stuffed the front end at pismo and had to install a new radiator and build my first bumper ever :D
    DSC_0165_115f9aecb9a6be40099e51f9383eb0d9ee2fff2f.jpg

    Got redemption on Calcity

    Built a frame brace/future bedcage
    vlc2010-01-1200-49-30-00_16f9ae202f7e11e31d48747abdc4a484939e01d2.jpg

    0109002307_6d109dcf01455fb2df06757d2a0faa84821b570f.jpg

    Built a bumper for my buddies truck soon after

    Then I got in conntact with a fucking scumbag named Nate Batchlder don't give this clown I minute of your time he's a worthless bastard. He promised a LT kit for 1400 what I got was a assbackwards bump-steer kit.
    [​IMG]
    and to top it off he was 6 months late:confused:
    I drove on that disaster for a few months till I decided I had enough
    So I tore it down in my driveway and started from scratch. No stock arms for comparison literally all from scratch.

    Put tons of miles on that set up then I stuffed the passenger corner at one of the pismo meets.
    [​IMG]

    So I'm tearing it down and re-building once again :D

    Plans are to get 18" of travel on all 4 corners

    Parts:
    Allpro 50T leaf springs
    FOA 18" triple bypass
    Custom hangers and shackles
    Custom LT kit utilizing 10" king coilovers in stock location

    [​IMG]
    It's a tight fit lol

    So you said pre-runner, but it appears you have CV axles in a few of your pictures?

    Nice build either way.

    I'm pretty sure neither of us is running at the moment so it might actually be exciting and competitive! ;)
