thats all i look at haha.

Just trying to keep it simple and not so exspensive.I had planned on linking it front and rear with airshocks.I could always go coils front and rear till money is there for airs/coilovers

If its a cost thing, I would link the rear and run leafs up front. Its really hard to make a truck look cool when you need enough frame to hold the rear shackle. My $.02

you are on the right track . looking , thinking and planning on the design . play with the tube design and the lay out . Fuel cell , spare tire , jack , storage box (straps , chains , air hose ) , on board compresser or air tank , if you put the tubeing in with nice welds - that can be used as your air supply also .

Look forward to seeing some pics
