I see the pictures are small, and my apologies. What I don't know is what I need to do to correct this. Anyone know?

Anytime. If the garage doors are open, the beer is cracked and the fun is beginning.

Default first attempt at photo bucket



Rear floor area is solid. Thankfully, as there is no after market support for these to replace repair, and I sure as hell cant fabricate to save my life (yet)....

Eight inches of total lift according to seller. Going to need to add another shock tower to handle the heft of the 7.3

[IMG][/IMG]

super clean and straight frame...

[IMG][/IMG]

Sterling Axle swap already performed by PO.

Purple in the rear, blue in the front, black body. The PO must have smoked a little prior to deciding on his color choice.

I am soo glad it fit on the hauler, but was also sooo pissed it did, as I would have much preferred to drive this rig out West versus the taxed Suburban and trailer.

[IMG][/IMG]

Even in Washington they use license plates to "temp" repair stuff...

[IMG][/IMG]

Got the front end off. Glad my neighbors are understanding since I haven't put up a pole barn yet...

Those leaf springs will need to be changed to accommodate the 7.3 and it's fat ass weight...

[IMG][/IMG]

So apparently the truck was two tone white and red... not so sexy...

[IMG][/IMG]

The bed is not perfect, but far better than anything I have seen here in the Midwest...

Back side of bed is just as clean. I did not get a picture of all the pine needles and beer cans in the back of this thing, but if you can only imagine a designated drunk trail rider, then you know what it looked liked.

[IMG][/IMG]

Nothing like a rattle can paint job

[IMG][/IMG]

Side marker hole, also known as "what the f#@! kind of spider was that?" hole. Not a fan of spiders in my rides, I proceeded to bomb both marker lights with copious amounts of bleach, raid, and anything else I could find...

Spider Hole #2. Although not confirmed by a visual interaction with "satan"s spider", I bombed this hole as well...

[IMG][/IMG]

Home made body lift. Nice. Nothing screams DIY like 3/4" piping and a band saw...

[IMG][/IMG]

So this is how you attach a Sterling Axle in an older truck????

At least it was welded on.

Front of the bed is just as clean!!!

Picked clean, sans the cab (waiting on a 7.3)

Both tanks came out much easier than anticipated.

[IMG][/IMG]

Redneck fix part Duh... so you broke the bumper bolt. Well lets see, get another bolt (grade 8 is sold at Lowe's) or take as much time as possible to booger weld the f'ing bracket onto the frame. Jackhole...
