No haters allowed! It's your truck, cut it up and make it what you want. Looks like you're building a serious corner carver! You've got some nice hardware there man. Really looking forward to your posts, so more pics the better...

Re: Project charlie

Wow just wow! I wish some of these parts were available when I started my build oh so many years ago. Off to a great start. I assume based on what I am seeing I will see an LS3 with a T56 soon?

I see Miller Lite is sponsoring the build....LOL

Twisted 71c10,

How did you like the summit chassis stiffener ? Iím about to order it. Is it worth it? Any suggestions on installing it?
