Hey she let me spend hours on end in the garage building the truck...That's cool enough in my book. I couldn't rock a bagged truck anyway, it's just not my thing. The tech nerd in me likes it though because it would be fun to play with.

Ok, Wedding and honeymoon are over and I can get back to working on my truck...The short list includes:

- New carpet
- New center console with friggin cup holders
- Custom (fiberglass?) box for my JL12w3v2 that is collecting dust
- Install new wheels and tires that have been collecting dust
- Tilt steering install...also have parts ready to go just collecting dust
- Big brake upgrade in the front from a Pathy. Just need 2wd v6 rotors.
- Try DDMTuning HID kit? I already have the Hella E-Codes.

Once I get through all of that...Longer term:
- 240sx intake and cam swap?
- in 4 years, emissions delete and custom tune
- turbo build? Stand alone?

Ok, off to order some parts!

Hey I just read through your whole build and I must say I WISH mine looked even half as nice as yours. Nice work on it.

I was wondering how you liked the KYB Gas-adjusts?
I need to replace the stock ones, i think they are past due...

I could help but chime in. The KYB gas adjusts are bad ass. I have them as well. A little pricey but worth every penny.

I've been really happy with mine. I don't think my stock ones were really worn out since they only had 90,000 miles on them, but I do notice that the bumps and stuff no not distrub the truck as much. I like them.

Congrats on the wedding!

Looking forward to seeing some more progress on your build. Looks like you will be busy for a little while crossing things off your list...

Yea i was looking into replacing all of them. I have a '90 with 90,000km (55,000M) on the stock ones but I feel going into corners and over uneven roads the truck cab feels like one of the windows are going to pop out (Almost like no give, yet they bottom out like nothing, with no added weight in back). I dont really even know if replacing the shocks will do anything because they really only dampen i heard? hence the reason for asking - Thanks

hella 5X7 lights work well and you can get h4 bulbs
i got a conversion in my HB and they work very well i just put a bit of rrtv along the trim ring because the conversion bulbs are a bit smaller than the sealed beams but a but of rubber stops the headlight shake at idle
