Awesome! That four link looks great. I'd like to see how you tubbed the bed to stuff those big meats in there. That grille looks mean.

Looks mean and nasty (in a good way). Where's the taillights? Headers are solder or aluminum? They look good and the collectors are excellent. I like how they're crimped to the pipes.

Ha, you are the first person to mention the tail lights! I originally planned to do some flushed mounted LED style tails, but I ended up moving away from it because I didnt think I could do it right. So, I just kinda left them off. The headers are solder. Love the look solder headers gives an engine. Mean and nasty was the exact look I was going for. Thanks for the feedback!

Not the style I usually like but that has a cool, understated aggressive look to it. Nice job.
