haha I know..that was a great phone convo I had with all you guys, made me miss it bad. But I will for sure be back for next springs trip.

right now I have to take down the whole front end and get the shocks and bumps cleaned and coils re-painted as well as the upper and lower CA's. After that I need to buy/borrow/rent a Media blaster and go crazy on the whole frame and tube on the truck. after taking the boddy off etc.

At least your doing it right.
I'd hate to see you get the truck back and spend all kinds of cash and still have problems.

hopefully, I have many plans/ideas to carry out. progress has obviously been slow as I haven't posted much. But I I am geting the bug to work on it again as I went out to move it the other day and made me really want to start getting it back in shape. I need to get it in a good spot in a garage hopefully mine if we can finish our extra stall soon. and then I have to tear everything off the frame, cab etc. so i can blast everything and get it back to bare metal. shocks need some tlc, as the coils are rustyish and the bodys have some corrosion. The a-arms and CA's need a blasting and some paint along with everything else. I think I'm going to plasti-dip the whole truck when i'm done. probably a super out there color like their blue and do the tube white. or whole white truck with neon blue tube, or neon orange. just something really different and fresh. cause its basically just a toy It can be off the wall in color

Now I need to go buy a nice big air compressor and find a media blaster to rent or buy

Little update, Got it parked in a buddy's garage and started the tear down-build up. Got all the front suspension off to get cleaned up and serviced and started to get the back end cleaned up.

so if your running the Deaver race pack is that the heavier G50 pack? I thought I remember your truck running Giant 64in springs.

I am debating between the G50 and the F31 Deaver rear springs leaning toward the race pack due to the heavy tool box full of gear and the full size spare. any advice?
