Default 1989 Dodge D150 on 20s, work in progress.

Hey guys, I figured I would get on here and share my truck. I got this truck as a work truck, and it has transformed into something completely different. I am far from finished with it, and I feel like I have made good progress over the past 3 years.

It all started when I got it for my 15th birthday...



Took the rack and toolbox off.



20s!



Started on the interior.





Started light sanding.



My first sub setup.



Paint!



2" drop in the rear.

Roll Pan







System upgrades, and the Big 3.











How it sits now.









Please post your honest opinions, and what you think I should do in the future. I am going to try to drop it to a 2/4 drop and am currently working on a blow through. Also, I am going to do all the body work and do a better paint job. The one I did was just a temporary one to get by. I have a couple of dents and dings here and there, mostly from my friends being idiots and treating it like a work truck instead of a potential show truck.

It was pretty loud for a single 12. I took it out and sold it before I went on vacation, but as soon as I get back, I am putting 2 15" DC Level 4s in a blowthrough. Should be loud then I have an exhaust video if anyone wants it. My exhaust setup is temp., just a cat delete and a bassani cobra muffler haha, sounds good believe it or not. I have quite a bit on my list to do for this, I mean my list just goes on and on forever, haha. Anybody know if some sort of Ram SRT10 chassis or motor/tranny/drivetrain swap would be even feasible for my truck? That is my dream, and I would do just about anything and spend whatever it will take to do it someday.

Thanks, its got its fair share of bumps and bruises, but thats what you get when you buy a work truck that is 5 years older than you, huh? lol. Only body work I have done to this point is shaving my emblems. I am looking forward to do body work on the whole truck at some point, and then a nice wet coat of pearl white

I like it man! I was thinking of selling my '83 d150 stepside. But recently I have been thinking of re-doing it. Where did u get your roll pan? What engine is in it?

I agree, nice to see some TLC on an older truck. You have done a great job on it.
