This is an awesome looking build. You've certainly got skills putting stuff back together and repairing parts.

Looks like you're doing all the right stuff to 'er... One thing though: In that picture where the bed is off, your sway bar looks hella twisted. Maybe it's just the angle, but I kind of doubt it. It looks just super warped.

Anyway I like what you're doing. Looking forward to what the future holds!
