Ok, I figured Id post up a couple pics of my truck in here. Its only been in the lowriders section before. most of the work was done in 2 days when I had R&R from my deployment. the stereo was done over christmas. other than that hope you guys like it.






the brakes are 13inch cobras in the front and 12in cobras in the rear. its rolling on 20s that are for a newer mustang. the drop in the front is DJM, the rear is flipped shackles with chassis tech front hangers. the grill is an F150 grill trimmed down to fit. the headlights are south american factory headlights, the tails lights were blacked out with the VHT nightshades.

Very nice, the brakes make me drool. Do you run a notch in the rear? How close are you to contacting the frame?

Thanks!

the cobra brakes are almost all bolt on. for the front I got the kit from racin' ranger on RPS, the rear I got the brackets from northracecars. you have to take the axleshafts out to do the rear brackets.

Iraq was hot and dusty. It wasnt too bad though, I was a gunner for a TAC the 15 months I was there. it wasnt too bad, but it wasnt that great either, there is always a PX even if it is out of everything, the chow hall isnt bad, and there is always somewhere to get online or to a phone.

No notch at this point, I do have plans for a SFBD and bags, but that may not be for a while. I picked up a 240Z over christmas and plan on making it fast before I tear into the truck more seriously.
