The Old Girl is coming along.. (2010 Update!)

Fitted the front clip parts for the first time. I think it looks pretty mean. Some trimming is certainly needed when mating M715 fenders to other civi parts but nothing major. Those are 30x9.50s on the front, and man they look tiny. Planned is 33x12.50s on a chero WT front diff. Should fill it out a wee bit better. What I *want* to do is put the HD44 8lug front I have and a matching 4.10 geared D60 in the rear, and run 35s but not there yet monetarily wise.

The truck is sporting a one off Tadworks 2" steel body lift. The frame and drivetrain is 68 J3000, cab and thriftside bed (not shown) are 65 J300 vintage, rear diff is a truck D44 with 3.54s. Looking at slapping a fron 70s Wt chero d44 to get it on the road, and 3/4 ton conversion maybe someday in the future unless I do that with my 78 J10 shorty. (edit: truck now has 1975 HD44 front and 1973ish Jeep Dana 60 rear, 4.10s, 3/4 ton)

This will be getting a M715 front brushguard I have, rhino conversion, and hopefully some sorta decent front frame bumper (3 piece wont look right with the body lift and doesnt protect much..)

The Edge... there is no honest way to explain it because the only people who really know where it is are the ones who have gone over.
