Hey Bill,

Thank you! It’s always fun building something that isn’t super common. I will definitely reach out! I am currently rebuilding the whole truck and that will include all the lighting as well and had all intentions of running BD throughout the whole truck. I will send you an email here shortly. Thanks!

Best,
Nic

Hey @Tahoe_prelander
Rad! I'm excited to follow your build here on the forum. Whenever you are ready definitely reach out. We can definitely go over some lighting zones and get you dialed in.

Best,

Just some updates on the build.

It’s been slow as I just moved to Colorado and started a new job. But I was able to get the front kit removed and sold.
And the most exciting part was chopping it up! I have been dying to cut it open and see what we’re working with. I plan to finish taking out the rear and get rid of the components on it now. Then pull the engine and start that build.
Next will be busting out the quarter windows for new forged carbon fiber quarter window with DBM trans coolers. That should keep me busy till the holidays are over. But here are some updated photos.

Let me know what you would do to this build. It’s always great to hear others ideas!

What’s your plan with the old rear links and shocks?

Holy hell bitching build.
 
Just some updates. Have not done to much besides get the rear suspension parts ordered from send cut send and some body trimming to get ready for panels. Been using RAM board to mock up the templates for the sheet metal.

Also got the old link brackets cut off the other frame. Part of the templates came in for the lower links

Don’t mind my shitty drawing of what the rear fenders will look like. Taking a different approach then the typical bedsides you see, going for symmetric look hopefully 🤞🏻

And picked up a new tow rig that’ll have a slide in camper for snowboarding and of course desert season.
