coming soon, we installed the rear ends today and bolted them up. then installed the bat. boxes with air tanks bolted up. bolted up all fuel and hyd. tank brackets and set tanks in position to check to make sure they lined up. hooked up air lines to tanks and repositioned air dryer to inside frame. starting to look like a truck again. :D :D :mrgreen:

GG2! Thanks for the pictures, you know what they say a picture is a thousand words.
Looking good I can't wait to get my chassis painted. Sorry that losing your cheap help.
I guess we will be lonely together. Cheap help is better than no help at all. :lol: :lol:
