I'm going to win this contest so easily it's not even funny. We called it the danger ranger for a reason.

My favorite exchanges when I got it inspected:

"You can't do that! You can't braze brake lines!" Really? The home made 3/8" & 3/4" spring perch is MUCH stronger than the stock 3/16 stamped POS. The sleeved & brazed section of brake line (from 3/16"->1/4") was absolutely stronger than any other section of single-walled brake tubing on the truck. I got there didn't I?

The oak cab mounts? Yeah they ride rougher than the stock rubber ones, but something is better than nothing.

Yes my battery/starter/alternator cables are cut up jumper cables. Yes it's safe, they're 2ga and I soldered the ends. Yes I made the end lugs from copper water pipe.

On topic, the exhaust was welded using an acetylene torch and the coat hangers were the filler rod
