    I do a lot of SQL stuff at work (statistical data analysis). But one thing I want to learn is web scraping and more python stuff. Php is pretty powerful, my friend works with that a lot at his job as a web developer, but a lot of the stuff he does is lost on me. I'm good with working with tangible stuff, less so with building things from nothing.

    New ball joints, finally. Pretty sure the pass side was original, 170k miles. About to add these seat reinforcements that @mechanicjon so graciously designed and created for us.

    Pretty sure I saw you In Donelson last week. Knew the truck had to be on TW, just took me a few days to figure out who. Ha ha. Am I right?

    Color looks so badass in person btw.

    Me too! Hey what's your rear setup like? Just creeped your build page, looks like you have tons of droop

    Looks can be deceiving, I guess. Dakars, axle relocate plates, too-short OME nitrochargers in stock locations.

    Yeah, I have the same problem, I've got 8.5" bilsteins. I've seen a kit you can buy from sonoran steel that extends the bump stops and you can run 10" shocks in the stock location for a bit more travel.

    Ehh... more droop would be nice, but not at the expense of bump travel. I'm just going to roll with it until I get around to relocating the mounts.

    Lights, 3in lift, tires/ wheels, being awesome
    Have you taken the truck through any brush at all? Im curious to see how well the plastidip would hold up towards scratches.
