awesome to see the truck is still in your hands and work is being done! what header kit did you get? I am looking to maybe build my own since I'm at a point where nothing I can buy will work right.

The 60 is just staying stock rebuild for right now. I dont think ill really break anything but as i do break stuff i will upgrade.
I got the header kit from speedwaymotors came with the tubes flanges bolts gaskets and collectors for $139 shipped so i didnt think that was a bad price at all i will be doing over the frame rail headers.

Nice work on the truss.

Maybe I missed it. Are you staying with coils or going coilovers?
