Fresh 150 my helper Jon and I have been working on, truck had been gettin beat on for god knows how long so we practically refreshed the entire front end.

Started with removing everything… so we removed the cst kit, and dropped that off to get sand blasted, then cut off the cst hoop due to someone thinking it was a good idea to stack plates to fill the gap between the frame and the tube stand off…. So that was a good time😂🤦

After inspecting the upper control arm tabs I noticed they had already been repaired, and yet again, needed more love. So I decided we would cut off the oem tabs, and I designed some slotted tabs based off the oem tabs to replace them. First thing I’ve ever designed on computer and brought to life. Definitely was a cool feeling lol

Then we moved on to cleaning up the frame rails getting them ready for all the new/refreshed parts. Just a little bit of elbow grease and help from our trusty DA sander lol if there isn’t a huge pile of shit, they aren’t clean enough..

After that We moved onto the shock hoops, kept it clean and simple, after that started on the engine cross over, im a big fan of miters where they are acceptable, so I ran some miters with partitions/boxed gussets because I thought it looked sick, and it does indeed look pretty sick lol

Tossed some steel it coatings on the cst kit just to clean it up, and so my customer can wipe down the kit and respray it in the future after skme Offroad miles

Pulled everything out to finish weld/spray some steel it on the backsides of the hoops where it’s typically impossible to paint once installed, then reinstalled everything and added a few gussets where I thought there where needed then started getting ready to toss er back on er own weight

My boy Jon got out here and handled cleaning/painting the bumper even with his fucked up knee, something about this work shit is addicting🤣 came out super clean💪

Next up is the bedcage, have some really cool plans with that so definitely be on the look out if you care to see it haha🤟

thank you! its one of those trucks that has been passed around Vegas a bunch, And the new owner is pretty serious about the truck/build so i felt like we needed to start with a 100% fresh canvas so he doesn't have to look at or battle any gremlins from the past lol got 14 tubes ran for the bedcage yesterday ill post a few pics of that as well here shortly. idk how to get pics from my phone to lap top haha

Tubes I knocked out yesterday, pretty simple bolt in design, today I pulled the leaf pack out, bumper/hitch off, broke the pack down and am almost ready to cycle the leafs/move the hanger around to find my sweet spot, funny years ago @theycallmeWALLY walked me threw cycling leaf springs via Instagram dms and I’ve honestly used the same tips with great successes probably around 10 times now haha

Got a wee bit of progress on the f1 yesterday. Twas a hot one around 110 degrees and todays high is 115🙄 removed bumper, hitch, ugly rear frame horns and hangers. Moved the hangers back to their new location and plan on cycling the main leaf today to make sure she don’t bind. Still awaiting shocks before I can continue the bedcage lol also had to go grab new bolts for the leaf pack. The main bolt that holds the entire pack together is non grade junk I’m sure most of you are familiar with lol fuckers always bend and threads get beat to all hell haha good ol mcfaddens opens at 6am thankfully

In that first pic I’m showing the clearance around where full bump will be, very minimal clearancing needed to the under side of the bed. Forgot to mention that lol on rangers you gotta cut out that whole section of bed lol
