Paul,
Lights years ahead of you....LOL. This project started in late 2009 so I may be trailing you. Yep, I am not sure why the fired Leavitt or got rid of him but such is the life of a football program I guess. I do start listening to the lineups on NFL games to see how is from South Fl. besides JPP on the Giants. Puts a very large school on the map.

O.k. stock, LRX or Rage Rover. I think I like the LRX as it will have a Puma Hood on it.

I vote stock or an actual SVX grille. Not a huge fan of the svx grille, but I think it looks good in black, on a black truck. Like the Prindiville edtion. Either way, the truck looks really nice Clay!

thanks guys

Thanks guys. It looks like the rage rover grille is out. I think I will go with the knock off SVX grille aka LRX...it was my first choice anyway. Mack I would love to go with a real SVX grill but can't afford that set up. Besides we all know any one of these choices including the silver powder coat is lipstick on a pig.

Fair enough Clay, maybe someday. I can relate to making a few compromises while doing a frame up build, because if you don't compromise every once in a while, the cost can get out of hand quickly! The lrx grille will definitely look the part.

I still vote stock. The lrx grill looks like a cheap knock off as you said and why does every one want a puma hood when they don't have a puma engine. It's like stuffing your bra!

small world

I went to Tarpon Elementary and Tarpon Middle (we were the first class to go all 3 years at the "new middle school") so that must have been 81-83. If you wife is older than that and went to Gulf then my sister would have creamed the crap out of them in women's basketball. LOL. Her team went to state in 80. MEMORIES
