1 Ton Caddy sounded better than 3/4 ton caddy and i plan on putting a 60 up front one day but as i am a broke college kid i'll take what i can get, i have never heard of millenium mudders im about 20 minutes from waterford and yes it is a T.B.I 307 as was said be before it is commonly confused with a 305 due to the 5.0 tag on the decklid, as far as progress goes the rear end is done and 91K1500 should have some pics up later today of just how sweet it looks with stock front suspension and new leaf hangers and flipped shackles!! mind you everything is just tacked thus far still have alot of finish welding and gusseting to do!
