Ive been kinda busy with the truck..

I bought a dimple die to do some small stuff here and there, and will have to say these things are AWESOME..so easy to use they come out clean look great and make the piece of metal so much stronger..

Looks like that 3-link will work out nice. I'm curious to see how she works on the trail.

well its been like two-three weeks since Ive had time to work on the truck. Tomorrow I am going to up to the shop where its at. I plan on redoing the front upper shock mounts, build the front truss between shock hoops.

I ordered around 600 bucks of stuff today for some of the tricks I have up my sleeve :) which only a few members know about but hopefully in a month you guys will see pictures of the finished trick..
