Default my slooow build/ progress thread (lotsa pics)

Well I know there is some intrest in this, so I figured id let you guys in on my plans for the truck. But I'm gonna start from when I bought it, since I've got plently of time on my hands...

I bought the truck off ebay in october of 08, a 1995 supercab flareside 4x4 with the 5.8/e4od and the Mark III conversion 168,000 miles.

First mod: the rednecks best friend, my CB radio

My next step was some new (to me) wheels. I stuck with the stock 265 75 15 tires for a while as well

They are american racing 15x8 directional type rims

After that, my exhaust decided it would crack in half, so dual exhaust it is! My exhaust shop kept the stock y pipe and O2 sensor location. 2.5" pipes with glasspacks and 3" stainless tips. I did the out let similar to stock with both pipes exiting behind the right rear wheel

Next was the level and 33 12.50 15 hankook dynapro M/Ts. For a lift I used 2" coil spacer from ebay and heavy duty f150 springs. I bought them from carquest, and he might have said they were the same as f250 stockers, I don't remember.

Then the rear was a bit too low, so to level it out, I installed an add a leaf in the rear spring pack, and that leveled it all back out. If you add a leaf, you WILL need longer U bolts as well

That pretty much brings me to now, with a fair amount of rust and dents to repair, plus all my other plans for the truck. Here's some gory pictures of all the problems...
