Didn't work on it yesterday. Rained all damn day. All I need for the front is 2 left hand thread 3/4" nuts and a hose clamp and it'll be done in the front. I need a set of wheels and tires for the front Brenton so I can roll the ***** around and set-up the gears . O btw, I found a set of u-bolts for a 2-3" block in my toolbox at work.

Evan, the coils are tall, as in you have to mount the upper buckets up above the top of the frame rail unless you want it to sit high as hell.

And Jey do you want to sell your F-250 shock towers?

yeah i didnt bother mentioning the bumper cause i wasn't sure what he was gonna throw on the front once its finished.. by the looks of it's height, im sure that truck wouldn't last 20 mins on the road up here, lol.



but even so... i'd still love to have mine built like that!
