Im going to be posting pic's of the progress of my 98 chevy ext cab truck. I purchased this truck a few months ago already bagged from a guy in missouri for a real good price.

It's bagged on 22"s, Almost lays front, 1/2" port RE-7 Slam Bags, 6 1/2" Blitzluft valves, 2 link rear setup with bag over axle, Stock control arms.
This is my first bagged truck.
Getting ready to unload the truck at work.

what are some of your plans for the truck?
Get the front laid out(check)
Tub the fire wall(check)
Wheel tubs and notch cover for the bed
Do something else with the gas tank(check)
Move bags in rear from axle to bar(check)
Install shocks in the front and rear
Install digital gauges(check)
Billet grille and smoked headlights and tail lights
Paint it 2007 dodge pickup pearl blue with a ghost tribal design.
Thats what I have in mind so far.

the w/t's rock it saves you time for having to remove the side molding and the dumb fender accents, plus you get the smooth front bumper

This is when I pulled the truck into the shop and started working on it.

In this pic you can see that the front doesn’t quite lay out.

My boss gave me a truck tool box for un-installing his stereo system so he could trade in his truck. So I took some measurements of the gas tank and sure enough it would fit in the tool box.:hmm:

The box sits a little higher than I would like it to, higher than the bed rails.

But still looks a lot cleaner than staring at a gas tank.

I'd like to see the moron that tries to steal that toolbox!
Looks great, very stealth :thumbsup:
Thanks
yeah the box is bolted to the bed and you have to damn near be a contortionist (Did I just spell that right on the first try) to get them out from under the tank. It was a task believe you me.
