We will be welding in some trailer fenders in the engine bay later in the year. For now it will just have to be cleaned quite often or stay dirty.

It doesn't stay that way. He has air bags, so when its picture time or when you park the truck you dump them and lay frame. When you are driving it I bet he raises it up about 2 1/2- 3 inches for driving, and then a possible 4- 4 1/2 to clear speed bumps. Its completely adjustable.

Thanks everybody, and wow I forgot about that picture of my truck...thats awesome!

Actually my daily is a 2001 Ford Focus ZX3, but it is parked about 5 days a week. I daily this truck, I only park it when the weather is bad (snow, ice). I ride cali alot (front up, *** down) and slammed (I push pebbles with my frame) when at low speeds.

from the looks of it a custom intake (or at least a new intake tube) is needed.

That's coming, but I need the cash first, this stuff is expensive. It looks really kinked by the picture, but it has been like that for months and plenty of air is getting though.

1-2 years, we have to finish restoring and bagging our Datsun 521 first. Next in line is 4-linking the rear end and installing 2 more valves for side to side in the rear.
