The front has been done for a year now. I am finally bringing the rear up to speed. heres a couple of the the truck, and then the tank just sitting on the frame, the bed will get cut to allow for the towers, but other then that, we took the body lift out and refitted a ton of things and istalled a fuel cell

Looks wider than a EB axle and where are the wedgies? Did they get cut off?

The 4-link out back looks killer!
