    Yeah, basically. I also figured it would make it a lot harder to steal my quad from the back of my truck when I've got it in there.

But, i'm going to get started tonight after im done with class and tomorrow I only have 1 class so there is bound to be some decent progress by tomorrow night if everything works the way its looking like it will... :) Stay posted, i'll get ya a pic tomorrow of how its coming... want me to MMS it to your cell, PM it on here, post in this thread, or what? Also, im going to want to talk to you later today about some new ideas for the design and which you want to go with before I start cutting too much of it up.....

    Um, whatever is easiest for you. I will be working on the truck tonight and tomorrow night, so I dont know how available I will be. I will be unreachable until later tonight, got the gym then the tearing down part of the truck. Geeze man, what other ideas do you have? I didnt think you had anymore :D I have other ideas for you too when we talk, not about the 3/16 steel though. Oh and I have really shitty service where I live so phone isnt always the best option :(

    Washed and waxed the truck today. First pic I have gotten of it since I removed the N-fab light bar. [​IMG]
    Before I washed her I wanted to check out the flex (or lack there of) in the front end since installing the 886's. Might take the sway bars off to compensate for that.

    Well went to So Cal and got the tiregate, threw my spare on there until I get my new wheels just to see how it looks [​IMG]
    So this week should be an exciting one. Since I tore my front axle half shafts I will be installing new ones. Wheels should be in mon or tuesday. Gonna need a new dash kit, the metra one sucks, every little bump I hit it pops out, kind of annoying. I know everyone loves this one. Hopefully my steel will be done this weekend, so I can get my winch on. Also ordered the front diff drop kit to hopefully help with the CV problem.

    I'm a fan of Matte/satin black. Thats what I've painted my All Pro rear and my billet grille and they both look great. Not too glossy, but not as hard to clean as flat black. :) Oh, and I'll send you a new pic tomorrow.... you'll be :drool:ing even more now! Its 90% assembled, mostly just needs a bunch of welding, some sanding, and then the cutouts drilled out. :D

    Thanks. Nice S-10 :D I actually miss it from time to time, mainly thinking it would have been paid off a while ago. I know a lot of people hate them, but I loved it.
