frame work consists of cutting and welding in a plate, but i want to strengthen everything while im in there (ive seen people place tube gussets inside the frame under the upper mounts).

how does one access the stock motor mounts after LT i wonder? do i just leave the bottom of the bucket open? weird.

Still in that dudes garage. I was not too happy that my uppers that were "pretty much done" weren't even finished being tacked together. But here's the pic.. welds are nice, just wish it were done.

Guess i should update this one last time. The slooter is now owned by a kid down in Santa Clara. He paid me $100 under my asking price and in cash, couldn't say no. I miss it but i dont miss it, I'm looking forward to the next project.

yea i really need to get on that... my parents are tired of the bedliner full of stuff at their place, the wheels stacked around, and i'm sure my girlfriends parents are annoyed at my 8.8 sitting over at their farm, but till they tell me to move it, it's staying lol.

parts list so far, if you have a need for any of this stuff soon, contact me and i'll pull it out for more pics or sale.

(3) outlaw II wheels, 15x8, 5x5.5 pattern. one is slightly bent, good for a spare.

(2) 1.25in wheel spacers 5x4.5 pattern

upper and lower radiator hoses for a 3.0L, brand new

power steering pump for a 3.0L, brand new

pressure plate for a 3.0L 5 speed, brand new

used drop in bedliner, under the rail style

stock XL door panels, manual crank windows, no map pockets

FOA 2.0x8in shocks, with bigger 2.5 reservoirs added, brand new. (perfect for a 2.0 upgrade for a truck with a 5.5 kit).
