The BlueScab Build Thread

Finally got all my hail damage out so I figured it was about time to start a thread to keep track of my progress. Plus I know how everyone loves pics.
When I first brought it home.

Preivous owners exhaust setup

In Newport Tn for RRE 2011.

Picked up an 08 tailgate, bumper, and tail lights.

Got tired of the bench seat and replaced it with these.

Picked up a low mileage turbo with an ATS housing and wicked wheel from Chris(TNcoalroller).

About to roll into the paint booth. (Naked Truck Content)

Fresh paint truck still naked.

Got the truck back together with the 2005 front clip.

With 325/50/R20 Mickey Thompson ATZs on 20x12 Fuel Hostages

Now just some random pic whoring.





Thanks for looking guys, and thank you for helping me on this journey modding my truck!

Please excuse the missing fender emblems im still waiting on my Billet Badges.

Yea I made them from a pair of pto links off a tractor and got the brackets from Ballistic Fab. There is a write up somewhere on how its done if I can find it. The rod issue is no problem I've got a complete forged rod motor on a stand in the garage. I plan on buying some studs and valve springs at RRE if the funds allow for it.
