    heres the bed with everything in it including the gas tank which was relocated to the bed, all the valves, the tank, compressor and the rear notch and bridge. i painted the notch, bridge and the differential black. also you can see that the tailgate handle and Ford emblem has been shaved on the tailgate in this pic:

    [​IMG]

    and finally heres some pics of the truck aired out in the rear:

    so there it is. im halfway bagged. oh and in case you are wondering where the bags are, they are located outside the notch. enjoy!!

    I'll never understand the mini-truck guys. My friends that arent into V8s are into S-10s (and the thought of an LS1 in said S-10).

    Pretty nice though. You dont see many splashs around, especially not bagged splashs.

    That's a lot of gear to make just the ass drop. Are you going to need to like, double that stuff to make the front drop too ?

    nah the front wont take long. just gotta get the bag brackets and weld them in, remove springs up front, install bags and run the air line and thats it...pretty much.

    and the reason why the gas tank is in the bed is that it hangs below the frame rails and since its going to lay frame when done, i dont want the gas tank to hit the ground and have a hole get dragged thru it.

    Fuel door? Just get a fuel cell to clean up that bed.

    What size line are you running in/out of those bags?

    yeah a fuel cell is in the near-ish future so is billet grille and new headlights

    the yellow lines coming out the tank are 5/8" lines which goes into 3/8" valves and out to the bags via 1/2" lines
