Body will not be perfect, Just a bit better though. I gotta do some under carrage work to, This bitch needs to pass a VI. It doesn't need one but I want to get one anyway so when the cops pull me over for the lift/ tires ect. I can show them its already road safe and has a VI.

They'll still give you one if they want to so why waste your money

Drive shafts legthened. Rear is pretty much brand new now, New slip joint, New yoke on top side, all new u joints, new H yoke, New center yoke, Everything spicer.

Thanks alot, My body on mine is not great, But not super shitty either, I wish I would have started off with something like yours, That'd be wicked.
