Using the york compressor for air pressure is absolutely genius. Neatly fitting it in your engine compartment is icing on the cake.
Redneck options done professionally, it's a work of art! Such a beautiful build, it needs to be featured in a magazine!
With all the amazing exterior/drivetrain work, it makes me curious, what did you do for interior?

Clean interior, took out the buckets and put a old school bench with blue leather, and black suede with blue stitch diamond stich, with matching headliner and door panels. Needed my daughter to have a place to sit, since i took this picture i replaced the dash bezel and im doing a dash swap this weekend as i have the plastic cover on the dash now since it was brittle, when i change the dash i am going to do a gauge swap and going with a fully digital dash, also installing a back up camera, going to run all the wires etc when the dash it out

Amazing work. Thanks for sharing. What transmission is in the truck? Did you swap in a 5- or 6-speed?
did a stage 4 rebuild on my 4l60e that came in the truck, with a 3500 stall, and put a corvette servo. If i blow it up I will do a 4l80, I used the dirty dingo adjustable LS swap mounts, so it let me keep the stock transmission location. My cousin is a transmission builder and it was cheaper and easier for me to beef up what it came with. I will probably source a 4l80 and get it built and keep on the shelf for later, cause when your prepared you wont have a problem lol

What a great truck! I'm looking at it and seeing things I don't like (phantom dually, full phantom grille, shiny trim and handles, etc) but man, when I see the truck as a whole it looks killer! And who doesn't like a boosted LS swap? Awesome job bro.
that's the beauty of cars, not every build is the same, and I built mine to be my dream truck when i was younger and could not afford to do the things I did. Is it for everyone, no it isn't. Could I of painted my trim black and murdered it out like everyone is doing now a days, sure, would it look good, yes it would. But then it wouldn't be my build. Thanks for respecting the build. Oh and the grill was function, i had to cut the **** out of my grille to fit my intercooler. It was the only way to cover all I cut. Because im running a big intercooler for my 78mm turbo. But it does look good imo....

It's more than respect, I think it looks amazing. Everything ties together really well.

I've got a phantom grille on my square dually for the exact same reason.

Mate, I 100% agree with this response. So many people build there cars/trucks because that's what everyone else is doing at the time. I have huge respect for anyone that has the guts to do what he or she wants regardless of what other's might think. When I go to a show I am there to take in the creative thoughts and excellent workmanship that I know goes into building a custom vehicle regardless of the style they have gone with. We build our trucks for one person, and that is ourselves. There are a ton of great build threads on this site alone that have some incredibly well thought out modifications and I have respect for every one. You have done an excellent job and should be proud, keep up the great thread.
