    whoa, where to start with the details... not much is original, thats for sure, at everystage i pretty much said "well ive come this far, might as well replace it". but thanks to a pile of guys on here ive sourced some good gear:
    • AMC 360
    • T-18 avec le grandmama low
    • POR15'd everything
    • Soft locker in the rear AMC 20 and one piece axle
    • Stock Dana 30 in the front (for now) with new hubs etc
    • ss brake and fuel lines from inline
    • all new steel tub and front end
    • 4.5" superlift suspension + .5" body + shackles
    • ummm let me look at my credit card statement ive been hiding from wife..........
    • autometer gauges (did the custom dash thing, lots of fun there)
    • painless wiring kit
    • BEAUTIFUL HAND MADE LOW PROFILE SKID PLATE MADE BY THE ONE AND ONLY BUDDY HOLLY - aka Jason!
    • new exhaust/headers (cant remember brand but was a good deal for all of it inc mufflers, pacesetter i think)
    • LoD Bumbers front and back
    • Trxus 35's

    Still to do:
    • Finish engine wiring
    • efan setup
    • brake booster install
    • drive shafts
    • figure out shifter problems... cant find one that fits right — yet


    All i can think of for now, pretty gross list though, and all really in 1.5yrs... took me 8yrs to pull apart, quite, start something, quite, ruin a 304 and T150 (water & sitting) then finally with just a frame and shelves of parts decided after my wife told me she was pregnant, that I had 9months to build this thing or it would never happen

    She looks purty. I just notice something. How come the body isn't lined up with the fenders?

    Very nice work, I kinda wish steel bodies were more available when I did mine. I'm also searching out driveshaft issues for a T18 I finally got around to installing this winter....... I use the same emergency brake system as well.
