thanks for the comments every body, hope to have it finished up this week

I will be headed back to my home town for the summer (Cortez Co)
and thats also the home of my buddy Randy (Jimmys 4x4)

soooooo... there is a whole lot of things I want to do to the truck and with his help it will be a whole lot easier

first I plan on linking the rear and bobing the bed of the truck
I also want to do a realy low profile truss on the front and possibly hydro assist
then a light exo cage, it will still be my DD...lol, so also trying to keep it legal
