    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

    latest update...

    been working on filling the stake pockets in the bed, the 3rd brake light and doing a little mini tubing








    doing the tubs now since the bed is getting a spray-in liner and dont want to mess with cutting apart bed later for when i consider doing some suspension work

    finished up the factory style mini tubs, once the truck goes to body shop it will be getting a white spray in liner

    since i wanted my truck to work for me instead of against me. I went ahead and ordered a under bed fuel cell from DBrods. Its made from 3/16" thick aluminum and will hold 20 gallons for fuel. Allows me to keep stock fuel pump assembly. This will allow more weight to be placed behind the rear aiding in better weight transfer

    Street truck...that is more focused on working for me not against me...won't be any kind of killer till I can build a motor to handle the turbo.

    With building a ford motor for lightning my motor money is tied up for now

    since im about looks little more then i am all out race. I wanted things to look as good as i could this one last time on this truck. So i decided to have my built 4l80 painted to match my motor. I dropped it off at body shop to have it painted basecoat/clearcoat with PPG products. paint color is arrival blue




    since 2006 my truck has had white leather door inserts to go with the two tone leather seats, for 2014 i wanted a all new look. i chose to have my interior dyed with SEM landau black and my door inserts done with black suede
