    Meet Fatty. Shes a 34 year old divorcee of 2, and now onto her 3rd. She likes truckers who use her and abuse her but with me, I'm the trucker that is gonna treat her right. The first trucker used her as a daily beater, she didn't mind him. The 2nd, used her to tow scrap cars and as a daily. Then she sat in a field single and ready to mingle for 10 years under a tree.

    Here's where I come in. I seen her on the ol interwebs and had to have it. Went on our first date just to meet up, i looked the body over and decided I could work with it. 2nd date I paid it off, and 3rd date I brought her home. Being a trucker I wasn't able to start on it right away but now, its full steam ahead!

    So far to catch you up to speed...

    Bagged

    Cupped the lower arms
    Sheetmetal bed

    Currently finishing the bed up, then to get and mount the air components, yank the diesel, swap in a 454, redo the interior, and polish up the OEM paint. I'm gonna put it on 225/60R16s on Ford hole wheels. Enough chit chat, heres some pics...

    Welcome! I think the question that’s on everyone’s mind is if you’re keeping the camper shell.

    You don't see many lowered serious haulers.
    I have one silly-ass question; Where's the fuel tank?

    I like it.
    I think it will look cool with the shell on its back sitting that low.

    Loving the truck, I just bought a 86 c30 that I want to lower with bags as well. Can you give me a list of what you purchased to achieve your look
