Made it to Hot Wheels Event in Washington. Stepside LUV needed in a hot wheels blister pack :-)

Does this mean it is driven on the street? If so, how are you liking it?

So if you were to do this all over again, are there any things that you would have done differently? Or are you overall very happy with the results?

Well future mods I will do is bigger front mount, Front coil overs instead of torsion bars, add traction bars of some sort, cleaner wire tuck, eliminated heater core, trans cooler relocation, lower radiator some how (I raised the hood about 0.5" to clear), redo my trans mount, but other than that it will need a tune for higher boost. Overall this build is great so far, I am greatly happy with it. Thanks Jeremy for your help and everyone else that was involved.
More to come of course like interior work (carpet, Sound deadening, audio, etc.)

I'm happy I was able to be a very small part of this!
- The traction bars I added to mine made a massive difference that was good and bad. I got them because I was getting wheel hop really badly and I was afraid I was going to rip my driveshaft apart. The traction bars solved that problem, but also made burnouts at highway speeds much harder to do, which made the truck slightly less fun. So acceleration was great, but burnouts at high speeds was basically no more.
- Sound deadening was one of the best upgrades I did to my truck. It went from a super noisy tin can, to a Cadillac with about $40 worth of stuff from home depot. It was exactly like dynamat, but waaaaay cheaper, and intended for roofs. It is sticky on the backside, and about 8-10 inches wide. I will be doing the same to future vehicles.

:lol: :lol:

I believe the stuff from Lowe's is called peel and seal. I've never used it myself but I've heard lots of good things and the general opinion seems to be that it's just as good as dynamat, and 1/4 the price.

Truck looks awesome! It's always really satisfying driving something for the first time after major work like you've done. Once you get it tuned we need to see some highway pulls and burn out vids!
