This truck was just bagged by an "infamous" shop that works on "customs" and kaleb brought it in for a total redo. He got it right before sparks 5 and i had talked to him at the show about what he wasnt happy with. We found the air compressors zip tied to the frame and the gastank was held in with a ratchet strap. When he got home after the show the compressors fell off and the driveshaft snapped due to the cab not being notched. I got it sunday and did my inspection... not good. We will start at the back and work our way foward.
The bumper is shimmed about 1/2'' on the pass side. Not sure is the bed is crooked or its the frame.
The auxillary battery is held in with a metal band used for securing shipping boxes, note the huge power wide located between the frame and strap.
The bed had been channeled 7'' and to make up the gap they welded in tubing on only the front and rear 2 mounts. These tubes are actually welded in so now the bed cant be unbolted.
The c notches are a joke. Also note the shocks that hit the bump stop perches that were left on the axle.
Kaleb said they could not put gas in the cell, i found out why.
Heres the $200 new exhaust with 50 series muffler
The driveshaft rubbed the cab lad out, hit the carrier bearing crossmember at full lift
Front bags already rubbing due to frame not being cut out. They also used floater cups.
Drivers side trailer fender rubs the booster, also note the harness not only not relocated, but just shoved through its hole. I can stick 4 fingers through from the inside.
Battery just laying there not mounted
The motor ran like shit, we found a major vaccum line taken off and have no idea where it went.
And remember the bumper being shimmed down on the pass side? The pass side of the hood is shimmed up.
Neither one of the doors shut properly at the moment, were hoping the frame wasnt twisted.
All of this could be yours at the low low price of...
Plans are a total frame redo from the notches-back. Relocate air management, lever 4 link, notch cab for driveshaft, redo frontend, and get the motor running correctly. Ill be starting in a few days.
