Here is the " oh no " Pete I have been working on, so here we go. Ext. the frame on both ends,normal for the rear,but with this kit after ext. the hood I had to pull the front end out also. Dropped it down for the lowrider look, and kit bashed some other items from other kits. Enjoy......john

Lowering ....I cut the trailing arms off with the rearends and bags as one unit. You can use the lines on the air bags to choose how low you want to go.

This is an EXCELLENT use of the decals from that new wrecker.....And I would have NEVER thought of using a snap kit to make a 379.....I know what my next kit is gonna be.....Very nice conversion, and I like the color scheme, too....

I struggled for a long time to buy one of these kits , but i'm hooked. the wrecker kit is loaded with extra parts and I think everyone knows where their going to end up.   thanks john
