Thanks for the support guys! Sorry for the late reply, but I have been working on the truck like gangbusters. I finally drove it a couple of times, the first time on the street I didn't have my steering stabilizer and I got the death wobble that sent me off the road! I almost crashed and that was not cool. It was downright scary to drive at speeds below the wobble due to crazy bad bump steer. I recently learned that my drag link and track bar need to be at the same angles (duh). I fixed that for the most part and put on an OME stabilizer and it drives great now! Except for minor wandering that feels like it's coming from the back- probably the all pro jonny joints. I don't know if I'll keep them yet or not. I'll update the site by this weekend, promise- with lots more pics! I am having a hell of a time with the brakes, I posted a question in the tech section, if you have time please help. I am getting so close to being inspected and street legal it's too exciting at times. I have never done so much work to a vehicle and then driven it 7 months later, it was pretty crazy!

Thanks again for the support- I should have lots more pics in a couple of weeks or so once I take it out for its first test run! The wheelbase is 107" which is still a bit longer than a shortbed, I believe. It seems to drive very nicely though! It was really nice being able to comfortably ditch the 2 piece drive shaft.
