    My dad put a 95 together with the S&W Backhalf kit we did it all and was very simple.

    i dont have a truck yet, i like the extended cab stepside, my friend builds rail cars so he will put the backhalf, cage & ect. in it for me. i have been looking around for trucks already done or partially done. this will be a race truck only. i will be racing it at charleston (coles county dragway) most of the time. anyone have something like this let me know. im ready to buy. thanks, brian

    S10 Drag Truck

    Good choice... i found a already back halfed s10 was pretty cheap.4500..rolling. i like S10's
    It has an Alston back half ... works well now.. of coarse there were many things i changed ..but it ran go as i bought it. Al
    Not a big dollar setup ijust did new moroso springs and QA1 front coil conversion shocks up front..Stock A arms.. with travel limiters
    Im running a alston ladder bar rear.. with double adjustable vari- shocks.
    i was running a 14.5 32 tire but that was too much.. i changed to a 13.5x 31.5 hoosier tubeless.
    Anyway good luck enjoy
