The new red interior is installed, including carpet, dash pad, and a recovered original seat. The new wood rimmed steering wheel has been sanded and sprayed with automotive clear coat for a long-lasting lusture. New door weatherstrip helps block wind noise and leaks.











Lightning bolts are stitched in the seats for a little hint of the fury under the skin!

“Thunder’s Truck” is polished up and a new set of 18x10” Billet Specialties SCL85 wheels and Nitto 295-45/18 tires are mounted up, and it’s ready for the road!

The truck performs fantastically, and met all of its goals. The V8 Speed & Resto Shop crew really enjoyed working on this one, with the extremely stock and slightly weathered exterior and modern tech and power under the skin. What ideas do you have for your next ride?

Well, there are a few things to consider. You have to disconnect the steering shaft from the column, the electrical wiring from the chassis, and then consider the brakes. If you are just separating the cab, then the brakes can stay on the firewall and just disconnect the brake lines from the chassis. Otherwise you can disconnect the master from the firewall and leave the lines connected, but this involves pulling the brake pedal connection from the master cylinder. Next the hood and fenders need to be detached, along with the cab bolts from the chassis. Throttle linkage from the engine, transmission shift linkage from the steering column / transmission would be next. Then the emergency brake cable from the pedal. You should be pretty close after all that stuff.
