After that had been done, Greg took it to the painter and brought the frame back home so he could drop the engine in and have his friend Doug Holmberg mock up the exhaust. The narrowed rear frame section houses a 12-bolt rear and air bag suspension and shocks already installed as well as the welded in air tank between the frame rails for a clean flush look hidden under bed floor. Runs and drives super nice. Has Vintage air and heating. Tons of the hard work is already complete and needs a new owner to add the finishing touches.
