LOL, thanks puck... Funny part is this badass still hasn't fixed that rusty *** super slow leak above my water heater! It's on this Sat's to do list since we're not shock tuning till sunday!
Which truck is that? Not enough tube to be the race truck unless this was pre-build.
And have you not seen the early days?
How it was purchased...
After glass was mounted and I built the front bumper...
Winning a free set of leaf springs snowballed really really really fast.
I mean he needed a bedcage to mount them to right? BTW, all this labor was in trade for a set of shocks... That's my first race truck build payment technically...
Notice the fabbed up front leaf hanger just tacked in place after cutting off the stock ones and obviously the leaf pack is torn apart to cycle for shock setup.
This was the end of stage 1... He was stationed on the east coast right after this next picture and well, then it all snowballed again by me offering to store it for him till he came back in 2016 and I'd drive it once every 4-6 weeks to keep it from rotting.
That picture was taken in Lucern the afternoon before all those people were killed 2 summers ago at that offroad race. If the truck had gone right instead of left, the friend that owns this truck probably wouldn't be alive.
The front suspension pictured above is the camburg long travel kit. It had 8" sway a way coilovers, bypass and bumps up front and cycled 14" of travel. It's all gone and been sold and now is running on a custom kit with 2.5" x 10" king bypass race series coilovers, 3" king bypass shocks 10" in length and 2.5" king bumpstops cycling a little over 14" with custom spindles unlike the stock ones that rip the upper ball joint out that camburg uses.
