What part of Northern Ky and what are you trying to accomplish with it? Is it still a gas truck? Post up some pics of it.

I don't know either. I am on the fence about that right now I would like to get the body work and paint done first. (done)I am now onto the stance of the truck. I want it to have a hot rodder look. I don't want an east LA slammer. I want aggressive hot rodder look.

Well that will play a big role on what parts to use. My lowered halfton parts didn't like my Cummins.

Lol well you can do it like mine that way if you later run a diesel you just have to change springs.

That sounds like a plan.

I would like to see what you have done to your truck sometime.
