Default woo yeah! it's coming together

I don't know how many of you have seen any of my posts about my truck and problem after problem i have ran into, but its finally coming together. the block bored .040" over got the crank mains and rods all buttoned down today replaced the valve stem seals. My headers and cold air intanke came in just waiting on a couple more engine parts and Its gonna be breathing fire again shortly. Which will be awesome i can't wait until i get to drive it for the first time. I have only drove it on the trailer off the trailer and into the shop. If all is well with the engine and transmission I am going to possibly be moving in the direction of an off road build. Im talking gears,lockers,long arm front suspension,4 link rear suspension, and cutting that semi down extended cab long bed not the greatest for the off road world. Those things aren't going to happen tommorow just my dream for the truck and what i plan on making happen over a few years.

I'm on my second V10 5spd my first was a rot box that i picked up in new hampshire. It was a tank and I loved it never got stuck in any situation. I just purchased an 01 5spd I want to built it up. I've been looking for a stroker kit and a rear mounted turbo and all the other goodies for it. I want to build a diesel eating monster. Love my V10!!!
