So I haven’t been on here in a while, but I’m finally getting to build my truck the way I really want to. The basic plan is for a new lift kit, building a flat bed, and some fresh paint with some other stuff along the way. Im a couple weeks in, and I’m trying to get the frame cleaned up and rust free as much as possible, living in the salt belt sucks! But here’s what I’ve been up to so far. Found a rust hole in a crossmember already.

Man I'm jealous of your work space, I'd kill to have a setup like that for working on my truck. I hear you about the salt belt, I have a 15 LML and the frame is getting crusty. That will be a mean truck when your done with it!

Sulastic Shackles and leaf springs on, starting to resemble a truck again. It’s gonna be tall.

Still have some fine tuning to do, but here’s the difference between stock and new fenders from Advanced Fiberglass. I got +2” width and +1” height option. I’m pretty happy with the quality and fit so far.
