got the body pulled and frame stripped , powder coated and drive train re installed with fuel cell , fuel lines , trans lines and rear brake line
got a set of 5100 for the front but may have to go with a 360/80 valving instead of the 255/70 or whatever off the shelf valving is

well got the exhaust pretty much finished up , the turn down is 4" diamond eye and was able to cut and piece from the muffler back using a stock exhaust i pulled from an 05 cummins at the jy .
also lowered the chassis about 2" cause the rear driveshaft was close to maxed on the angle cause of how short it ended being

Wow! That's looking great! It is a lot of fun to get that Cummins running and driving in the old trucks. Aren't you in CA? I have a 65 W200 I put a 12 valve and 5 speed in.
