Because the steel rims and tires are no longer on the truck and bought a set of aluminum 12.5x17x37 tires and rims that I payed more for them then I did to buy the truck. and I don't really want to get rid of them.

Now it has a rebuilt 7.3 idi with a brand new banks side winder, zf5, power heated seats out a 2001 super duty, and new 37" cooper stt pro on american baja rims, dropped the body lift, but do need a 2 or 3" suspension because I mounted the 7.3 to low so the pumpkin is to close to the oil pan. It has now been taken completely for paint.
That's a good looking ride there...

Are you going to start a build thread to document what has been done up to this point and the progress once it's back from paint?

Thank you, I'm not yet only because its been waiting for paint for 3 years now the frame and rust on the body were fixed up all nice before I got it though. I just don't really have the time nor money to do anything with it right now, only because I'm going through school and have two of the most expensive hobbies someone can have, horses and vehicles. So it has sadly gotten pushed farther and farther on the back burner, but I'm hoping to paint it mid night blue on the top and bottom, and a off white in the middle. But I am tossing around the idea of using a old semi truck frame as a rear bumper....can never be to careful now.
