Yea looks good Jaime. I stopped by yesterday to check it out and all the work they have put into this truck is really clean. I sappose you should complete the exhaust, however I thought it sounded tough the way it was. 8)

yea right......! :)
I wasnt sure how I was going to fund the 44" tires,, but my lovely Wife said she would sell 1 of her Kidney's so I could buy them.. we found a Russian buyer on CL for the Kidney, and now just have to gather up enough ice and a sharp knife, (I will save a ton of $$ if I do it myself)
for the bathtub operation,, :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
