Guess your'e just being modest about the minor mods, the suspension job looks awesome, definitely got the pre runner look. Gonna do any power upgrades?

Chevy 305 stroked to a 338 backed by a turbo 350 trans running about 300 bhp and about 350-360 tq. Im not sure whether the ford 8.8 is gonna hold up to the abuse or if I should upgrade to a 9 inch. Its a major work in progress. Just wait till you see it in June!

If your'e looking for a 9 in, hope you can find one already shortened. The 8.8 should hold up for a while, really surprised the 7.5 in mine hasn't stripped out yet. Lookin forward to some build up pics if you get a chance.

Dam, that'll definitely hook up. Was thinking about doing the same thing till I was shown an article on how to shorten the 9", a real pain but they were setting it up for a mustang. The wider stance would probably help out with the 12.5" tires.

The front fiberglass was super easy to install but the rears now thats another story since we all know the rear fenders are spot welded on. I had to chop the fender up and lay the new fiberglass fender over it and bolt it down. I have some pics that i will put up soon of that whole ordeal. Thanks for the complements!

Damn those are some nice upgrades, sort of sad to see the Ranger clip going away though.

That has to cost a pretty penny, it's going to be awesome though!
