BLAKTRAC - 04 Sport Trac 4x4 Prerunner

Thought I'd fire up a new thread for Seabeck 4x4 and Fab's latest prerunner project. This will be a very capable all-around comfort cruiser for the desert and mountains, and maybe an occasional grocery run mixed in:D

Some Specs:
2004 Ford Sport Trac 4x4
4.0L V6 SOHC
Spintech Muffler

Front Suspension:
Dixon Bros Racing LT 4x4 Kit
Fox 2.5x8 Coilover Reservoir Shocks
Fox 2.0x3 Bumpstops
Dixon Clevis steering kit
Dixon lower A-arm crossbar

Rear Suspension:
Deaver G50E pack
Warrior Products shackles
Fox 2.5x14 smoothbody reservoired shock
Fox 2.0x2 bumpstops
Seabeck 4x4 and Fab custom bedcage

Miscellaneous:
Hanneman Fiberglass (front and rear)
Seabeck 4x4 and Fab front bumper
Seabeck 4x4 and Fab rear bumper/tire carrier
Hella 700FF & rallye 4000 pencil beam lights
Procomp M/T 33x12.50R15
Procomp 152 simulated beadlock wheels
Beard/Corbeau seats w/ matching rear bench

The customer has already installed the fiberglass, and as soon as we get the arms coated, the suspension install will begin!

Nice lookin welds! And the build up has started. By the way the paint is sticking and I plan to throw another coat on today. Should start to get a lot thicker of a coat. I actually plan to coat the entire rear cage. Might be a little time consuming but worth it in the end. Can't wait to see the route you take with the next tubes.

Also I picked up some new u-bolt protector spring plates. They look a lot better than the other ones I showed you. Let me know when you talk to ORW and we'll get the tire mounts on order.

Almost done with the bedcage. Going to do a bit more platework and gusseting, some more dimple dies of course :D, and throw on the bumps and straps, brakeline and fuel lines.

Yeah, if you're mentioning about the leaf pack down to only one leaf. Then it's like that so he can cycle the suspension before he puts the entire leaf pack back in. It's just for mock ups and making sure nothing interferes with the travel.

I'm pumped Josh, Let me know when you tap into the front suspension I'll try to make a trip out there.
