    I would like to start off by introducing myself, My name is Chris I live in Sunny Florida. I just acquired my 2001 short bed, standard cab a few weeks ago. It was "bagged" but was a complete hack job. 2-Link with a pan hard, was set up all wrong and cam no where close to laying out. I've been working on it since day one and finally got it reliable and i drive it daily for now. Future plans consist of Body dropped, 4-linked, Raised stock bed floor with sectioned wheel tubs, shaved, suicide doors, fully shaved and paint. All this work is going to start after SlamFest this year. Stay Tuned...

    This is how it set fully lowered when i picked it up...

    My air management setup for now is 4 smc 3/8" valves, 5gal tank, 1/2" DOT airline, DOT PTC Fittings, I also converted my factory Sanden A/C compressor over to a EDC (Engine Driving Compressor) witch fills my 5gal tank from 0-200 psi in about 4 mins at idle.

    Nice dude, Thats gonna be one sweet truck when its finished. I've always loved the way the Gen 2's looked. But I usually only see Chevys and Fords, its nice to see a real truck show up. Keep us posted, I wanna see this thing once its painted.

    Are you planning on lowering the front anymore, or calling it good where it is?
