Ok so not much of an update on the truck but i got into another relationship recently so updates on the truck will probably slow down after the rear end is finished. Just a warning lol.

Ok so we went out to perris today to pick up my bedcage from threat motorsports. Well we got it but on the way home my truck started smelling funny and sparks were flying out of my front left fender well so we pulled over to the side of the freeway and checked it out. It was my a/c pulley and it was as red as a cherry lollipop. Apparently the bearing had gone out and we were running the heater and it totally fried it. Well we turned off the pump and milked it home so now my truck sits at home waiting for hopefully just a new pulley but we got the bedcage! Heres the pics:

Thats just a mock up to see if the mold i made outta fiberglass would fit, and so far its good just need to add another layer of fiberglass and then lay some bondo on it and paint it.
And the 8.8 on its way to the school.
