New additions and random pics of the truck.

I was finally able to sell the wheels/tires a few weeks ago, but haven't had time to upload pics. This guy is on R-F and is the largest of his 2WD gen to be that big that I've ever seen. Not sure if I posted pics of the Hella lights behind the grill or not. They have a halo ring too.

Rolled 100k right after I met him.

I know a lot of people don't like these 'grandpa caps,' but I've found this thing to be rather useful with in the past week. Plus for $50, I couldn't pass it up.

Also got a new 6x12 toy hauler, but I def need to get a hitch.



I worked on the truck some tonight. Since the SAS there were a few brackets still attached to the frame, so I attempted to give it a shot at grinding a few before dark. I got a few places, but I want to go back sometime this weekend and go at it again. I'm going to be grinding everything smooth and getting that frame a close to smooth as a baby's rear end. It's all primered now though. I do have a question though... Are all the holes in the frame really necessary? Can I weld them in?

I don't want bugs and rocks hitting them and I still need to find the time to wire them up.

Nice!

One more fender, paint that cap, and that thing will be awesome. It looks 100% better with that bumper back on.

I think the holes in the frame are too absorb impact...but crush the frame when they do...lol



What power are those hella's? You're gonna melt the poor grille if they're big boys.

Id leave the cap black so it does not add to much visual "weight" to the truck..

just get a fender, emblems, and center caps..

and your truck has a leg in one pic!!!!!

x2 I can't stand that!!!

Although, it'd look stupid if it went straight to the cab and you could see the edge of the rear glass on either side. haha

it's a lose/lose situation
