what are we building luxury cruisers with first class cabins?
hahaha (please dont look at my BII as an example)

Stage III for the BII = loss of first class accomodations I beleive
 






you can cut the floor out of the cargo area and run a plexiglass shield with dynamat behind the back seats to keep teh crap out and noise down.
 






haha. first class yeah right. i still have dirt inside the cab from MLK weekend 3 months ago. WAJ. but yeah, im not sure if im gonna run hoops into the cargo area, a underbed canti setup, or some other under setup. it will be leaf sprung, no linking now.
 






hey jeff, did you find out exactly what ball joints you will be using yet? and if they will fit in a stock lower? just wondering because i picked up another set of lowers than im going to be gusseting, boxing and plating so now i want a ball joint that i can rely on not to break
 






im on lunch right now, the truck goes straight to the shop after work. Everyone pray for no rain tomarrow cause that would suck. I riding the skateboard to and from work tomarrow :D rock star status. yeah, im only a little bit excited :eek:
 












i took a couple quick shots of the uppers yesterday too.
