    So far I have removed all interior seats and panels to get them reupholstered.

    Prepping the floor boards tonight for bed liner install and door panels for 6.5" speakers

    Next on my list this week is the physical installation of the radio. The old one is easily removed but due to the space the depth of the radio becomes an issue.

    Next week the new heavy duty front coil springs, 2" spacer lift, wheels, tires and fender flares will arrive. Then hopefully I can get James (TXSHOCKWAVE) to weld me up some seats & storage for the truck bed.

    I am in the market for a 6'x10' trailer with ramp / gate.

    That's what I'm looking for. Where did you find it???? They are hard to find.
    I recently purchased this for 500.

    I found it on Craigslist searched in Dallas, Austin, San Antonio, Houston, Lake Charles. I have a few numbers of some guys here in town that import them they can find you one in stock form and go from there like I did. I just lucked out with someone already tackling the paint for me. Plus all the body panels are straight, very little rust and everything works down to the windshield wipers!

    If you call me I'll talk you through everything and fill you in. I started looking 2 weeks ago and finally found one and pulled trigger on it. My budget was a certain number and so I had to pass on a lot of already built ones that were just too expensive, plus I like wrenching.

    Cool! Are you going to independently control the lift on each wheel?
