Well a lot has been done in the past month.
There were some people who thought the steering was going to be a problem, but there is a heavy duty rack in it ready to go.
The oil pan was sectioned, so now the engine is in and putting all the pieces back together to fire it up hopefully in the next few weeks.
Fininshed the sound deadening(huge truck=lots of deadening), so the interior will be put back in.
So after its up and running, the AC will be figured out.
I cant wait to have it rolling under its own power soon!!!

Pics!
Just waiting on the new radiator, the front seats are in and it feels great to sit in it.
You can see the steering ready to be hooked up...
Hopefully driveable to the Severed in the Southwest show on Dec 5th!

Well, Big Brown is definitely on the ground.lol.

Lowered trucks usually aren't my cup of tea, but yours is very tasteful, and I really like it.

Bigg Brown was at the Severed Show, I love Socalcustoms.com.
Hope to have it back to its winning ways by the Art of Noize show...
