Just curious, how long has that truck been sitting on jackstands? I think ever since I've been here your profile pic was the same. Maybe I'm wrong

Great progress though

Sometimes that's the trouble when it's the best product on the market. Sucks it's taking so long. Have you called them?

Ive called em because my last order I called to make sure it wasnt going to be 3 months til I got it..and they had those laying around..so I asked about the other order and they said oh we will get that out in three days..which they didnt so I call back and they give me the same story, free stickers, discount codes blah blah blah..so its not horrible..BUT its not like I have nothing to work on the truck, there is plenty of other work..id just like to finish up one project on it before moving to the next..

welcome to building trucks... i battle that all the time. jumping from project to project because you dont have the right parts.

I wouldnt order crap ones, just keep bugging them and waiting. They are worth the wait.

tire should be here Tuesday I hope. I just ordered one complete corner, I wanted to make sure that everything will work before I finalize the front or rear. Didnt want to dump three grand down when more DOM and coilovers still have to be bought...but thats all the updates eyes got

BTW -- the blue is just primer..I needed something to throw on it so it wouldnt rust and thats all I had at the time..so dont think thats the final color

What a POS.




I think the blue looks cool, or maybe like a dark copper would be cool too.
