     Very cool project! nice custom touches throughout. i've got two of these that i want to do in a similar fashion. i hope you don't mind if i ask questions throughout your build (i'm not very familiar with the big trucks). what did you have to modify on the suspension to lower it? i'm not really sure where to start with that to make everything look functional and realistic. can't wait to see more of this one. do keep us posted & keep up the great work.

Thanks bro,  this is my first semi.  I have a peterbuilt 352 also need to build next.  Ask away with your questions .  more then happy to help rusty32rod. For lowering the truck all i did was change the location of the axles from underneath the leaf springs to on top of them.  Tou will have to cur off the rear airbags.  They will get in the way.  I also grabbed a bunch of rubber o rings to fill thw gap where the air bags where then the bags look real.  For the feont axle... When u do that the engine dont fit properly.  Tou will need to notch the oil pan

I like this truck as well! I saw someone build this kit and lower it by knotching the front leaf Springs and the axle to lower the front and knotch the rears as well lowering the rears. I am thinking about doing this as well.
