I decided against the fuel cell because I really like the way my exhaust works and a rear tank would just make it impossible. The 16 gallon tank will be in by the end of the week. I'm leaving the left side out so if I do an air bag system down the road it'll be a nice place to mount everything. I took a few pix b4 I left but they came out like crap for some reason... I'll post anyway....

Looks kinda "little" :P  Nice job, looks like the one I almost bought a few years back...  It sat lower since it was on a Kustom Tube Frame, and had a Chopped Top(same hood, tube grille, and light covers 8)

Thanks!

I just picked up my new driveshaft I had made today. I'm gonna put it in tomorrow. I got the exhaust welded back up and now I just have to square the bed for the tailgate and I'll be on the home stretch!

The guy that built the driveshaft built me the most heavy duty that would fit so it is mega beefy. I just hope it clears my H pipe or I'll be doing more cutting and welding!
