Ill put up some pics of the front suspension shortly. Custom upper control arms, modified lowers, stabilizer bars, narrowed 1.5", also have a Corvette 327 mounted between the frame rails, the frame from firewall back is my air tank also.

damn dude you got the setup! 327 8O weren't you running a 231?

i dont think i could get away with slamming mine so low im moving out to Wyoming and ground clearance and 4wd go a whole lot farther out there. closest im going to be able to go now is rear air helper springs for heavy hauling if i dont get a fullsize truck for it. whats a good source for paint?

I meant about not being low in Wyoming. The roads here arent any different than anywhere else. Just need a winter vehicle for the bad days.

gotta admit the roads out there are alot nicer than the ones here... too much rain all year round makes em crappy real quick. but yea my land im looking at has no access road X^D and only got one vehicle at the moment. so atleast for not now i can slam it in a year or two when i get another truck and get settled in on the land

Did you have to narrow your front suspension at all when you had the escalade wheels on? I have silverado wheels and mine hit the lip of the front fender when I air up or air out now that I started my body drop. And what kind of master cylinder did you use? I notice your brake lines hook up on the opposite side

Sorry about lack of updates! Recently moved and have a baby on the way! Few pictures of the truck at Dropt-n-Destroyed 7 in Akron, Ohio. Front end molded, buick vent holes are shaved, start of new engine bay, full frame w/canti-lever rear, 20" billets all around. Waiting on material so I can build my canti-lever shock mounts in the rear, and a few more tricks.

Looks like the back of the frame is gonna hang out from under the bed about 8 inches? Any plans for that?
