in the end of the little wrenchathon this is what it looked like....we did several things to it like the brake upgrade, rear bumper, new spring hangers, installed the 4" marlin leaf springs in the rear, cleaned up the engine bay from loose wires, serviced the knukles, painted it, put some 33's on and im sure we did more i just cant remember all we did...but thanks to speedy and bob the truck is in alot better shape than it was a week ago  :beerchug:
