Decided to start a new thread since the name of the last one just doesn't fit anymore. I'm guessing this thing will weigh about 2800 pounds when it's done, and then I'll be itching for more power. Relocated the shackle hangers today and got as far as I could on the bed. Need to get more metal. Scored a Toyota 4.30 e locker today at pick n pull. Was very surprised. So decided I'll be doing a Toyota axle swap a little ways down the road here.

Gas tanks new home. It's about a foot forward or so from it's original mounting location, so getting the lines hooked back up will be super easy. I thought I'd have the filler located under the bed but quickly learned it needs to be higher than the tank lol, so the filler will be in the bed side (not sure if it'll be in the spot down in the photo, or if I'll move it back a bit).

More progression. Rack system all done. Rear bar is easily removable. Tail gate done. Exhaust done. Added tie down hooks to the sides of the bed. Rear upper shock mounts burned in.
