Alright ladies and germs,

Some of yall have seen some of my work with the 07 and I've started to get enough done that I decided to start a thread on my progression build


for everyone who has unkind words for lowered, 2wd pretty trucks on big wheels
:buttkick:

:rof

The final result of this build will be for a one off show stopper and hopefully some magazine coverage in a few diesel and non diesel mags.

It will still be a driver and hauler. Hopefully I'll get the chance to haul more show cars in the future :party018: :headbang:


so on with the pics:

Day or so after I bought it (bone stock):


Drop shackles and Tinted tails.


Custom Fiat badging:




Custom Interior Work:




Eye Lids and 22s:

That was nice and all but I had ideas floating around in my head that needed to be built

So the major modifications began:











Then came another Idea:








:ah: :hyper:

Most of the underhood is color matched as well.

And anyone who doubts this truck having work truck roots:

Subscribed. My roots run deep in the air suspension world. Good luck, looking forward to the build.


One thing you might keep in mind, if you have the tools and abilities, it's a lot easier and affordable to do the majority of the work yourself.

not sure on rims yet....


However RBP should be coming out with 26" rims in december :headbang: I really hope they dont look like shyte........

I also have another idea involving custom SRW rims too :stirpot:

If good thats what I'll do if not I'm not sure. The problem is that big rims require a dually axle to use the adapters instead of a spacer on a SRW axle.

I also need to confirm if a C&C axle is more narrow than a regular DRW axle and all that jazz....

It wont be tacky I promise, I am VERY VERY particular on my builds and they way my stuff looks, some people dont like the style but most can agree that its not tacky.

The rear I'm still trying to decide on 4 link or 2 and a watts I want to beable to take it down the track too (non competitively) so we will see.

Bags probably wont be until next year.

I'm hoping to do the dually swap before the summer if not on big wheels stockers will be fine just to get it done.

There are some wicked setups out there. I like the simple yet unconventional setups. Air over wishbone coil would be sick, and good for the track. Can you spell cha-chiiing?

yea that would be pretty badass. I'm sure it'll be a badass setup when we get to the teardown and rebuild :headbang:


I like the cantilevers too, they are sexy from an engineering standpoint

Subscribed. You have one bad truck. I'm a fan of the super single rears. I've been wanting to do that to my old mans truck.
