302 V8 5.0 w/new TH400 tranny
+9 over equal length Beams and x over steering up front strapped @ 22" travel
3 Linked strapped @ 28" travel everything new in the rear end w/spool
32 Gallon fuel cell

King 2.5 bumps and coils on each corner, Had bypasses at one point but looking to buy new ones in the near future.

Looking to re-paint entire truck either hot orange or nevada blue..haven't decided yet. Currently making it street-legalish

As is sits right now the front tires are donuts because it just came off a trailer and I havent put the regular ones back on yet.

Any suggestions for paint color/decals?? Sandhustlers logo and decals coming off in a couple days. Progress pics to come.

Sick truck man. Go blue and do the graphics in white, at least that's my opinion. If I could do my truck up I would go all black with bold white and blue graphics.
