Thanks for all the votes. I hope my truck gives people ideas for their trucks. If anyone has questions about how or why something was done let me know and I will do my best to answer.

Thanks everyone. Like I said before it was fun to build. I set out with the goal for a simple look with details that would make people look twice. I gotta say thanks to tee rev on RPS for the cobra adapters for the front. The paint is just factory and maybe someday soon I will get to fix all the little dings in the finish. I was gonna bag it but I picked up a 71 datsun 240Z and a JDm VQ30DET to swap in. so the bag parts will end up for sale after I get to the US and the front might come down another inch and the rear will get a bolt in notch. but otherwise it is done since it is going to stay my daily driver. lol, I wish I could build cars for other people, but I dont even have time for my projects. I havent touched my 47willys jeep in 5 years, it might go for sale too.
