So many of you know I ran static 6/7.5 for awhile until I did this on my way to attitude check.

Never found out what it was but good guess it was and expansion joint.

Week or two after that I dropped the truck off to Matt at HaggardFab in Vineland New Jersey.

Plans are:
Rear 4 link, fuel cell in the stock location, step notch, air tank under the bed, bed tubs, then modifying the factory lowers with belltech drop ball joints and using my mmw uppers.

Running 2 viair 480 compressors a 7 gallon tank accuair vu4 valves front tubbed battery under the bed. Ect

Anyway he got the truck in the shop and apart got the tank dropped and cut some shit out.

Old notches are getting cut out tomorrow and new ones going in. He's fixing the frame so it dosnt sad down from the guy who did a jack job on my notch. Should get the rear bag mounts in as well. Maybe a few other things. I'm going over to check out the truck after work so ill grab some pictures as well as post updates when I get them which is normally daily! Should be done by next week for me to trailer her home!

Cool, this one is moving along really quickly.

You're going to love having a vehicle that can drive over expansion joints without being torn apart.
