Wheels Tires:
20x8-inch Devious Titans, with Toyo 255/35ZR20 tires

Suspension/Chassis:
Fabricated frame, from the front control arms back. Stock-floor body-dropped, Barely Legal Fabrication control arms, custom wishbone link in the back, a two-pump two-dump hydro setup, all chrome with stainless hardlines, and stainless braided lines, 6-inch cylinders up front, and 10-inch cylinders out back-which are run upside down and through airbags that provide an adjustable rate spring-setup in a cantilever application. Most of the suspension components are chrome-plated and everything else has been powdercoated. Barely Legal Fabrication "no-notch" tie rods up front.

Bare metal, for right now.

Motor:
SBC 350 with 350 turbo trans. Block is painted to match the frame, an Edelbrock chrome intake manifold and carburetor, hand-fabricated valve covers, also a chrome-plated custom-made exhaust, and tons of other goodies.

Miscellaneous:
The truck is being built in a two-car garage on weekends, during vacations, and without an army of contributors; mainly my wife and I. All of the bolt covers, wire holders, and custom nuts are all one-off pieces made by the owner on a mill or lathe, and then sent out for chrome. The fuel cell was a raw aluminum piece from Summit, the owner spent many hours sanding and polishing it to shine bright, all of the various hoses and lines were all run inside the frame to keep the outside nice and clean.

Special Thanks By Owner:
Without my wife being so interested in this kind of stuff, I would have never gotten this far, so most of my thanks go to her. I also thank the guys from Barely Legal Fabrication, Riche and Josh; they had been helping me on various things before I ever started working with them. Also, a couple of good friends who have helped at one time or another, the D.R., Kickstand, Ripper, and Dangus.

Future Plans:
Over the winter, I plan to rebuild the transmission and paint it to match, put the body and bed back on, get the interior back in, and paint it.

Completion Date:
Hopefully Havoc '08.
