Have a build thread on another forum but figured I would start one here. Truck is a 99 single cab short bed, stock floor body drop using 2x4 square tubing and custom back half. Will be running the 07 classic front end and leaving the body pretty much stock, just gonna put a roll pan, save tailgate handle, 3rd brake light, and cab seams. The motor is a 6.0 lq4 just plan to run it till it blows then do a built 390. 20x15 and 20x8 intro matrix wheels, wilwood 6 piston brakes all the way around. Interior will be pretty simple as wel, just a harness bar and corbeau seats. It still has a ways to go but plan on having it completed by spring.

Thanks for all the compliments guys, I didn't give a whole lot of info cause I didn't know if it would be a hit here or not. Currently me and a busy are building new motor mounts. The intake is a beast and would not fit under a stock hood, and I really don't want to run a cowl hood so we lowered the motor 2" and made solid motor mounts. I'm also gonna scrap the 20s up front and order 22s should give it a cool pro street look. Also looking into sectioning the front fenders and dropping the wheel openings down to match the rear. Has anyone done this on this body style truck? I know it's real popular with the square body guys but idk about these trucks.

Thanks fellas! I'm cutting the upper control arm mounts off as we speak so I'll post pics. So much grinding!!!! I also made coil brackets to mount onto the firewall, also mounted the alkycontrol pump on the firewall. It's starting to come together nicely. And I'm paying very close to all the details on this thing the goal is not to be able to see one wire anywhere on the truck.

Got a little progress done, looks like I'm gonna have to put uniballs on the control arms, raising the upper arms put my camber back in check but have no lift without the ball joints binding.
