decided to pull it back into the shop and shorten the radius arms up and put them on heims, and 4 link it with a 9 inch rear end.

Looks great! That's a hell of a cage and dash. Like what you're doing to the suspension too.

You'll have to join us out at Truck Haven. We go a few times a year when it's cooler.

thanks! where is the truck haven at? i would like to go once i get this thing all done
 












So far I love it! Are you doing all the fab yourself?

yes sir, everything had been done by me, except for the dash.i helped on it but i dont have the tools to do alumunum work so i took it to a freind who did almost all the work on it
 






This is a sweet build you definitely put some thought into that cage. The spare tire carrier and fuel filler is a cool idea too.
 






Stellar Work--Really NICE!!!
 
























Way Beyond Impressed-Incredibly Awesome!!
 


















Fabulous fab

Great fab work and creative melding of tube and plate. I admire the way you used sheet to finish off the backside of the Navajo interior...slick ride with links and trussed 9" ought to get you there and back!
 






well little bump from the dead, completely re doing the front end, and dropping in a ls1!
