Updates on page 17 for what I have done over winter of 2010/11


It only took a few long months to get everything together and the garage ready for my truck to be put on air ride. So here are the pictures so far we started on March 18.
Here are a couple shots of the Ekstensive front end parts that arrived last week they are getting powder coated this weekend hopefully. The kit is great it comes with everything you need including shocks.

Anyway here are the shots of the truck from last night started by removing the grill, headlights, upper bumper, fenders and hood.

Got the fuse box pulled apart trying to figure out how to relocate it without cutting wires.

Ya its taken a bit longer then I wanted to get started but its worth it the garage heated and always warm.

Ya I agree the only thing gonna slow me down is my job, but they always let me go home early so see what happens. I will be tubbing the firewall to be set up to run larger tires if I want to.

No im gonna set the truck up to run on a larger overall diameter tire and like the guys said the snow and shit wrecks rims plus the tires need to be replaced and the lips are getting machine polished before the truck comes out.

hell yeah man, im ready to see this thing on the ground!
Ya your not the only person that wants to see this thing on the ground.

Here are a few shots from todays work only like an hour and a half. Not a whole lot started stripping the driver side suspension. I couldnt be to loud in the garage as my buddies kid was sleeping so hopefully tomorrow I can get the ball joints out of the spindle. I also started loosening bolts on the passenger side.

Quick update but no pics all suspension is disconnected and removed the front bumper. Hopefully tomorrow or tuesday I can get the plasma out and start cutting out the strut mount and upper control arm mounts!

Do you guys think while I have thebumper off should I paint the lower part gloss black to match the rest of the truck? Let me know

Damn i missed this thread. Can't wait to see it done. The lower valence will probably get scraped to shit so don't paint it.
