Okay here we go.

96 k1500,52k original miles, work being done by Phoenix Rod & Custom in Hackettstown NJ.
I honestly can't remember what's all gone into this thing so far but it's my very good friends' dream/bucket list project.

I can recall adding:

Moser monster rear end with brace (going to sell 14 bolt rear)
4.56's
4.5" Rough Country lift
2 winches, one in bed for dragging dead animals & tools up into it, one in front
lots of armor & lights
rebuilt trans & gmc 350
40 gal tank out of a suburban
long tube headers
honest to goodness true dual stainless exhaust with flowmasters
matte black paint (matte clear's weird, streaks disappeared & sheen fades after few days cure)
those cool running boards that fold out when you open the door
lots of other stuff..

Enough talk..

PICS!




The BEFORE

In rolling form once again, & some Eye Candy.:biggun:

Sadly, i no longer have pics of the 8mill Aston martin DB1 prototype, the 1 mill 1 of 1 french ford prototype, the 1 of 1 something else, or the 1 of 2 other thing. This shop had half a dozen 1 of 1 in the world cars in it. The place is insane. Then there's our 96 gmc :rofl:

Paint & Body

At this point it's Running again, cab has been undercoated, and paint things are happening!

Remember the matte clear is weird, it stays streaky and glossy for a few days then evens out and dulls. Lots of times painters will panic and shoot it again thinking they screwed up and then it gets milky * disgusting ruining the entire paintjob. Fun stuff.

My favorite; Wheels & Tires!

Changed whole attitude of the truck and finally startin to look like somethin. It's a lot of bumper but it's holding a lot of winch. And thankfully the brushguard made it look less bulbus..
