    05 2500 SAS, The Red Rocket

    I'm going to attempt to copy and paste some highlights of this build from PBB. I hope to keep posting in both until I decide which one I prefer.
    here is the origional thread. https://www.pirate4x4.com/threads/05...ocket.2640442/

    what I started with



    the build is still in progress but here are the highlights

    NWF Ecobox and NV271F
    05+ SD60 with 5.38s, lunch box locker, 1550 shafts, Artec weld on steering arms, barnes truss.
    factory 14b rear, lunchbox locker, 13 bolt cover
    3 link front with 12" 2.5 fox coilovers, KMC offroad 2" bumps
    2011+ superduty steering box
    40" milestar patagonias on dirty life beadlocks
    1410 CV front drive shaft from High Angle Driveline

    as of now the future holds a 4 link rear, shortened wheelbase and a flat bed once the front is done with.
    I have a cam, valve springs and a TBSS intake for the LQ4. the 4l80E got a Transgo HD2 kit and the truck was tuned by 150tunes.





    I am currently working on fitting a winters shifter and JB fab twin sticks into the center console.

      not much has been going on with the truck, i've been staying busy with yard work and actual work though. I finally got my front driveshaft from high angle and I ordered up a winch. I plan to get some work done on the truck when i get some days off. I would like to have the interior back together and the shifters buttoned up before i move it out of the garage to start the rear.

        Looking good. I still debate doing something similar to my lbz, or getting a 2500 suburban and building it.

                  Not much to update. The D60 is under the truck, the front drive shaft is in, and im still trying to find tue time to finish up the shifters. I decided to put a new deck on my house and that has been taking up most of my free time.

                    No updates, I’ve been wasting my time working on my house. My dumb ass decided to rip the back deck off my house and build a new one which has taken much more time and money than I anticipated.

                      That's a nice size deck you have there...

                        It’s all the big deck energy floating around here.

                          How are you supporting the 271 portion of your ecobox doubler?

                            Probably with a jack stand as we speak.

                              I’m planning on building a ring that bolts up to the tail housing and then a bushing to a crossmember.
