soo i seem to have got myself into one hell of a project but im super pumped for if all goes well the outcome!! ;)

just picked up a mint frame from 81 pickup longbox with custom 4.5 inch leafs from carrier
with a custom one of a kind first gen extended cab!
all for 400 bucks :party0010:

now my plan is to get a set of new axles, rebuild, 4.88 gears and hopefully lockers on 33s

completely restore the cab and frame to mint

theeeen the fun part! swap all the rest from my 83 pickup turbo on propane onto it

then gunna hunt down a decent long box, bob the front and back
and doing onboard air, dual batteries, and all the little neat stuff like that

easy as that drama

so, what do you guys think!?!?!?! :dontknow:
any input or ideas before i dig in?

cant decide between 33s or 35s!?!?

He had them posted to photobucket he just used the wrong URL. Either use the "IMG Code" url, or grab the "Direct Link" URL and slap it between some img tags.

Why dual batteries? One optima should be enough unless ur trying to start ur truck while winching it while ur compressor is running

My single battery will drop below 9 volts under a heavy winch load. Dual batteries would come in pretty handy.

dual optima/other high end battery, not needed imo
