Didnt you have that backhalf done awhile ago though? I think I remember seeing those same pictures awhile ago?

And how much of a z did they do? looks good and all that camber is sexy...

Someday I wish I can get my truck to that point..

Hell you'll only need like a 2 inch traditional bodydrop to lay body now that it's z'd.

thanks guys..yes the back half has been done for a while now.. but the Front has been done for maybe a few months.. i'm real excited to see how it does in the show.. it still has alot of body damage but i'm hopeing with how clean it'll be and the back half showing it'll do good none the less it's gonna be a huge party.. and alot of dragging. but thanks for all your kinds words...and for the body drop.. theres really no point.. it wouldn't even take a 1 inch BD to make it lay body.. if i do anything it'll be a 4 inch BD and it'll be laying doors.. but heres what is all gonna jhappen to in with in the next monyth of so...
Bed is going to be finished
SHocks up front
Edge Hood
and i wanta make an old school shifter for it.... i want it to be about 3 ft long with a skull on top of it or something of the sort lol

Ok. So the truck is looking good, but (remember this is coming from a guy who knows nothing about lowering) what does "Z'ing" the front mean?

when you cut the front frame rails off from the front clip forward and raise it 2 inches hence making it look like a Z

Without a z the front wont lay as hard as the back so the back will be lower than the front when aired all the way out. Its the engine crossmember that holds us up in the front even when we cut and notch for tierods and such. Also dont need to bodydrop it as much if you do a traditional bodydrop to make it lay rocker.
