    Still plugging away....and things are going fairly well so far (jinx)

    Managed to get 99% of the exhaust done today....3" back from the factory Y pipe into a stainless BORLA muffler with dual 2-1/4" outlets. This was left over from a previous build. Also got the idler arm replaced on the front end...rest is all still stock parts, thought that was pretty impressive. Swapped out the hubs for the dually's again as well. Front doors are loaded with all new weather stripping etc. Mirrors are on...managed to find some legit perfect patina mirrors at a buddies personal wrecking yard. Will start loading rear doors in the next few days....going with clear glass all around instead of the factory limo tint rears that were in the doors I used.

    Though I have made 4 steps forward, and 10 backwards on this truck in the past couple weeks.

    Managed to get the notch done in the rear frame to allow another couple inches of drop to level things out, also decided to build my rear differential (cab and chassis was way to narrow for now), so installed a 93/14FF/3.73 gears to help out with that 4 gear transmission. Then realized that the factory 16" duallies won't clear the drums, so found a set of older smaller set of drums on another 14 I had, and in the process of blasting and painting everything up, servicing the bearings etc. Luckily the donor diff had all brand new drums, brakes, and hardware just installed prior to parting it out. This will allow some additional clearance to the fenders....and will be of extreme help when I buy my 20" dually wheels which have a bit more offset than the factories.

    Pinion and driveshafts all positioned where they need to be at ride height. Think I might rock the factory steelies for a while....just cause.

    Decided to tear down the dash on top....wasn't happy with how things turned out in a few spots. So my OCD kicked into high gear and it is 90% done "again".

    ...gonna be a long but overdue post. Upside....lots of pics once I am done boring you to death with the details.

    So, I finally got a fire lit under my arse and got some work done. Cranked out some serious hours over the past 3 weeks and got her to the point of being able to drive it...not done, just driveable to where it was safe and respectable to start putting some miles on to work out any bugs or issues that may arise before snow fall.

    Bear with me as the pics go along....I have some catching up to do.

    Dash completely torn down to the bare metal and started over due to me not being happy with the end result previously completed (yes this is why it's taking me so darn long!), and now in "patina" paint waiting for buddy to show up to finalize some details on it with the air brush.

    IMG_5044%20Medium_zps0omt4swc.jpg
    And wahlah...just like that airbrushing details done on dash. I am obviously cutting to the chase on alot of the process but I'm sure you get the idea. Just trying to take some of the long drawn out pain of it all out of the post...hahaaha

    Seats are all bolted in one last time, SEM used on them and hoping the black will show through on the cracks to give the worn look I'm after....hoping it will work for me rather than against.

    Raptor liner in the bed...stuff goes on and looks spectacular in my honest opinion...will it last forever...more than likely not, but time will tell. Not expecting it to be bullet proof by any means. Word to the wise though...expect to use 1.5 kit minimum for a short box. That's what I used and I think that is a bare minimum in my books....Just FYI

    Box primary body work completed, Endura etch primer on bare steel spots, UPOL high build primer over that (3 coats), guide coat...and now sits for a while before I will get around to blocking it out to get rid of the heavy scratches.

    Rear differential changed AGAIN.....long story but anyway, tried a few different combo's, found out that there are definitely some misguided information out there including the 14 bolt bible of what swaps to what and what measures what...Ended up with what I feel is the best combination of parts/differentials I had laying around and with minimal cost (not including frustration)..
    I used a SRW 14FF from a 1995 GM truck, swapped over the outer brake assemblies incuding backing plates etc from a 74 14FF SRW differential. Then had the SRW hubs machined down to accept the dually wheel center (bit smaller) and allow for a larger lip that the SRW hubs do not provide to give the proper "hub centric" center for the wheels. With what I had measured for my after market wheels I was good for clearance all the way down which eventually I was hoping to bag the truck in the future. This gave me a total WMS measurement of 66-5/8" wide total. Extra 2 plus inches per side from a stock dually D70 rear diff.

    ...and finally...when it all came together after working through the night Saturday till 4:30 am then back up again at 8:00am Sunday to bolt in the seat belts, swap the hood out, put the plates on...and a few other things...took it for it's first drive/show in 5 years or so. Put on 100 miles roughly with minimal issues. Ran like a champ...and was a REALLY good feeling to be able to do so. Put some fire in my step to finish it now. Needed that push at this point for sure...

    Anyways...enjoy, and hope to have more progress pics very soon.

    Congrats on the awesome build man. It's very unique and got a lot of cool things going on. I'm a big fan of the short bed dually setup. Keep up the great work

    Lol yeah it's been a minute since I've posted on here. To say my life has been crazy would be a understatement they could make a lifetime movie of what's been going on. Hope it gets a little better so I can get back in the shop and get work done

    Well, managed to put on around 6000km on her this summer with minimal issues. Put on new tires all around, new alignment, found some good front door panels and got them installed (just need to find some rears now), box is sanded down/blocked ready to spray, rear bumper is on, narrowed and shaved..will grab some pics when able.
