Default Long time build for my brother...

Sup guys. Wanted to drop this in here. Ive talked about this truck a couple times on the site through the years, but its finally done. Started it July 24, 2000. No kidding. Finished it this past week. Its my brothers truck. He bought it new in 87. He also has 6 kids, that hes always put first, so the truck came last. Wed get a little done, and pull off for a couple years until funds were back up to where he was comfortable spending on the truck again.
Its a cool deal for me as well. I actually drove this to school once in 89. I have lots of memories in this truck, so for me to build this for him was pretty cool. He told me what he wanted, and I did the rest. He lifted it 6 inches the first couple months after he bought it, with 35 tires. It was like that until I started the tear down in 2000, with 50something thousand miles on the clock. Of course, its never seen the mud. Original sheet metal. Zero rust. 17 lift, 44 boggers, 20 wide custom built beadlocks, custom crossover steering, 3/4 ton 8 lug axles, 5.13 gears, etc, etc. We even did our own hickory bed. First time out was this week for tuning, and then he put it in a show Saturday for square bodys only where he got best of show.

Another. This show was at our city hall, which is the Ga. Racing Hall of Fame Museum. Lots of Bill and Chase Elliott cars and stuff as you can imagine, as well as lots of other race cars on display. Takes an hour or so to see it all. Theres even a moonshine still and tasting facility. Im serious.

Very nice, congrats. Just sold my '87 after 21 years and a bazillion bucks into it. Still wasn't nearly as nice as the one you guys built.
