Thanks Joe,

I see you are making some progress on your rig too :) I need to have this thing done by the 2nd weekend in July, so time is ticking away. I am extremely happy to get my shocks, now I need to get the truck together as much as possible and roll it across a set of scales to get numbers to help choose spring rates.

It will get there soon, right now I am hoping for mid sept. Had some issues with my new p/s pump being damaged right out of the box. I also have a lot of other stuff going on right now keeping me from working on it as much as I would like to. I keep taking on side jobs that put money in the bank to finish the build but take time away from actually working on the truck.

Default Finally it moves.....Just not under its own power YET!!!

Mocked up the front shock mounts and got them tacked well enough to support the truck, so i decided it was a good time to push it out and clean up the barn a little. I still have work to do on the shock mounts front and rear but that will be happening later this week.

Hey man, don't mock the 29's. It sure beats rolling it around with 42's. I might put the 42's on it for the heck of it, but thats a lot of work. Damn things are heavy.
