    Just ordered a completely rebuilt 7.5 front diff with a spartan locker from marlin crawler. Flexed her out the other day.

    Got tired of the retrofitted HID hellas projector ballast's going out so I ordered some R.I. duallys diffused with amber lens to replace them.

    Also painted my wheels black since the original steelies were starting to show signs of rust.

    Just read through this entire thing. Awesome truck and build! I love the older pickups. Do you have any recent updates or pics? did you get your suspension all tested and set?

    Thanks! The last couple of pics are how she still sits. I've just been wheeling her as she is since I want to get bumpstops and the correct deaver leafsprings for the rear. F67s instead of the F55s. I plan on making a light rack for some pencils beams down the road.

    Wow it's been a while since I have posted up on here. I went through that low point in where I got burned out on my truck. Too much $ and just snags here and there made me lose motivation. I think I'm back in the game tho. I went wheeling 2 weeks ago. Here are some updated pictures. Ordered a new Aisin clutch since mine probably looks like a glazed donut. Also acquired a new 40inch light-bar that will be going on the roof once I figure out how i want to make the roof rack that will tie into my bed cage. I also managed to somehow break the spring leaf perch that is welded onto my frame. No biggie, just needs to be re-welded. Onward to pictures.

    New stuff... Made tailgate fit, put camper back on, added a tire swing from an old 4runner and switched out to Deaver H-70 springs to handle the extra weight.
