Truck runs, stops & steers great. Has not had to many miles put on it since completion. I did trailer it to Nashville, TN. in May for the Goodguys Car Show at the Nissian Titan Stadium, with a great response on the truck. It was definitely a head turner. Truck does have some small issues. One thing, is that there are some small checks in paint on bed, as pictured in the two close up pictures I have shown. This should be an easy fix, I think it's due to paint shrinking. Simply fix it or leave as is. Another thing, the driver's side window has a crack, due to my mistake of shutting door while I was installing some of the interior without having the garnish molding installed. Other than that, the outside of the truck looks great. There are no horns & the neutral safety switch is not hooked up, wiring is run for both, just never got that far. The speedometer doesn't work, but don't know if the cable is broke or not fitting properly, as it is a used cable. The last issue is that the front end sits a little too low. No issues with anything, but the crossmember being too low. The truck settled more than I thought it would. Stock height springs or adjustable coil-overs would solve this issue. I have described this truck with as much detail as possible & any issues I am aware of, as I want to be upfront & honest, with no surprises.
