    New Additions:
    Caged/Tubbed/Rearend

    I'm posting current progress, there's been a lot of changes to this truck in the past, but here's the current state.

    Engine bay, needs a little organizing, but here you go:




    Intercooler and icebox routed inside, good water transfer pump. Getting ready to trash the icebox and build one in the rear of the bed for more traction and weight transfer.
    (old cage in the background)




    New stance, big wheels.



    Rear view:




    Side view and stance:




    Finally, starting to take care of traction!



    View of the suspension work.



    Here's the safety part that is a must. No short cuts here. Notice how the builders tie into the frame and build a side impact bar. Cage is certified as well. Top pics coming soon, but up top is an 10pt cage.





    ZX-1400:
    all stock, maybe a turbo next year.

    '05 Avalanche:
    6.0/80e conversion, front mount turbo, lowered, etc.



    Update:
    02-11-11

    Just got some newly released MP Ball Bearing T76's. Quicker spool (not that the truck needs it) and supports more HP.

    Wow, never thought I'd say this but you've got one sweet looking rear end in that thing! When did that get done and who did it?

    Thanks Red! I'm excited about my rearend too lol. Only thing left (other than clean up and making it look pretty) is getting a bullet proof trans in there.
    Might have to hold back the boost level now that'll it hook better.

    The guys who did it are awesome! They are on an hole nutha level. It's a dad and son operation. They build some badass cars. Their car is an all out 67 (i think) nova, 7sec 1/4 mile on engine only, faster on the 500shot, 860+ci engine, 2500+hp, from what i can remember. And, the car is incredible, it's a show car as well, but raced every season.
    As for the other cars, can't really say or talk about them, they are big ballers, big money for street racing.
    I have no earthly idea why they took my truck in, they usually only do big time stuff, but they thought it'd be fun and a change, other than the pro street el camino's, novas and camaros.
    I can't post any contact info, they are strictly word of mouth and selective on their installs.
    I know it sounds crazy lol, but they don't need the work or money, it's purely a hobby for them and customer support is incredible!!!
    They'll even go out to the track to tune the ladder bar setup.
    Didn't mean to go on and on about them, just something new and exciting I got exposed to.


    Beatdown, I had a 4-link I tried building myself, for the first time, technically it was a 4link and rode/drove awesome, but didn't have the adjustments it should have had.
    The builder told me it would have worked well on a street driven cruiser, but once I got traction, just not enough there to keep it going.

    Still need a lot of work on the front half now, but that'll be next year.

    dude that is sick [suspension] that engine bay does look different then last year. Looking forward to times this thing should run, im thinking a high 8
    2002 Lightning - GT headed 5.5Litre w/ Twin 7665s
    2002 Silverado - 427Lsx w/ Twin gt4202s
    2010 Silverado crewcab Z71 - 5.3litre w/ procharger
    2000 Wrangler - 5.3litre with some stance
    2014 Xsport- 3.5 Eco boost
    412 Motorsports

    it ain't that I'm too big to listen to the rumors, It's just that I'm too damn big to pay attention to 'em..That's the difference

    Oh ya forgot to answer this.
    Took it up there last week of November and got it back the day after Xmas, on sunday!
    That included all the parts ordering and delivery.
    When it comes to chassis building and customer satisfaction, nobody compares.

    After the feb race I'm taking the red 09 truck were doing a turbo on for a back half, 9inch and proper roll cage.
