Got the truck basically torn down. In the middle of an engine, transmission, and transfer case rebuild. Next step is to pull the differentials so I can blast and powder coat the chassis. Then the expensive part begins. I was thinking about painting it blue jeans to match the tremor but the wife wants to keep the trim chrome so we’re going with mallard green instead.

Looks great! Thanks for the progress update. Oh and coming from a duck hunter, mallard green is an excellent choice!

Very cool!! There's something about how much a vehicle means to a person when they hand screw things together themselves. Almost an extension of the person or person's doing it.

Oh and just don't paint it velocity blue for obvious reasons.

I love that there's a fellow highboy owner on here. I'm sure I'll have a ton of questions when I've got a bucket of "spare" bolts to figure out
