It's just the tinyest bit of surface rust. It has been raining lately. Other than paint the truck will be done on saturday! I am in for Las Cruces. I haven't recieved any stickers yet.

"David, You are spoiled in the south west. YOu can work on your truck all winter in a t-shirt.. I'm jelous."

I don't wear any pants either.

Here are some more pics!! I drove it today. That front tie rod is 1.25in 3/8 wall with 1 and a quarter ton ball joints. It is frekin beefy! The coolest part about this is the turning radius is unbelievable. I can flip a U on a 1 way street. That is going to be a huge advantage over the terrible turning radius it used to have. The other cool thing is the axle outers are actually lighter than the CV setup. I would not have guessed that!

Good stuff man. You will loose that turning radius once you put the shafts/ujoints in the front end. Also weld some plate steel on the front of the diff, it is amazing how easily those housings dent...speaking from experience. I got a 9" diff guard from Blue Torch Fabworks and had Keith cut it in half and weld one on the front and rear. Keep the pics coming!

Will do, I am going to have some metal welded up there. Can't wait to show you the skid plate! I don't think I am going to lose much turning radius, the turning stops are set at thier stock locations.

YES! But no! I was all happy because I was supposed to get it today, my birthday, but it turns out the rover brake master cylinder is too wimpy to handle the big new brakes. So now I have to source a Corvete master cylinder and install it. So now it is looking like monday or tuesday. Big bummer!

I don't buy stickers. People give them to me, and a price break.
