The bed used be on a standard cab over in Missouri, and yes it had a blow through at some point. I actually bought the truck from a guy in Missouri, and it was already bagged. I plan on changing several things on the truck suspension wise, one of which being the 2 link and going to a 4 link.

The next plans for the truck include both raised x-members, re-bagging the front to accommodate for the radius arm x-member, then I want to get all new 2600 bags for all 4 corners, as well as new valves. Once I get those done, I am gonna start looking for a fleetside bed and will change that out, as well as do the 4 link at that time. We are gonna build our own 4 link, so that should be the fun step of my project.


I have posted a lot of pics over on RPS so yeah, you have probably seen me over there a lot. I figured when I got to this forum, it would be full of all the same people, but I have come to realize that there are a lot of people on here, that are not on RPS. Glad I found the site and I can't wait to get more done to my truck, and hopefully the wife will let me attend a meet sometime...lol

Thanks again for all the comments.

I have already changed some things on the truck. When I got the truck it had a chrome 5 gal tank with 1 480 compressor and 4 valves, all of which was under the bed. I changed all that when the 480 bit the dust. I decided since the 5 gallon was mounted so low it was draggin, I would move everything to the bed. When we pulled the 5 gallon out, it had no drain on it, so it was literally half full of water. That is when I decided I needed a new tank, so I went with an 8 gallon black 8 port tank. That is also when I got my dual 380 compressors. I stayed with the original 4 3/8" valves for the time being.

After that I decided it was time to get rid of the crappy plastic fuel cell that was in the truck. So I saved and got myself a 15 gallon aluminum cell, inline fuel pump, and a fuel level gauge since I could not find a cell with a sending unit to match my stock gauge. I got all that installed, and now I just need to get some time so I can mold the universal pillar pod into the pillar, so it doesn't look so cheap and crappy.

So far that is really the only work I have done to it. I have only owned the truck for about 10 months, so I haven't had too much time to do stuff to it. Probably like most people on here, I have A LOT of plans for my truck, just need the time and money to do them. The biggest plan I have in store for right now, is to get me another vehicle to drive daily so I can actually park the truck and work on it. lol

Figured I would give everyone an idea of where the truck was and where it is now.
