You've got your work cut out for you, but it should be fun! What are you thinking for the suspension so far?

Yeah, going to be a looong road until I'm finished building it....but it doesn't look impossible.  Should be fun.

And as for suspension. I have that used crap I mentioned before....from that wrecked truck at Harry's U-Pull It.   The I-beam drop brackets....pitman arm....and lift coils...... I just ordered some Bilstein 5100's for a 6" lift.  I didn't know what to order...because I don't know what size coils I have.   And I also ordered lift blocks for the rear, and new U-bolts.  I want to make my own 3 or 4-link eventually....but just blocks for now so I can get this build started.  I think all I need now are some extended brake lines.....do I need them for the front AND rear?  Or just the front?   With that said....I should have all the important parts pretty soon....and I can get to work putting it together.


Side note....going to fire up my new motorcycle tomorrow, and maybe try riding it.  I'm pumped!
