yeah i've got the money together though thanks to 2 deployments to afghanistan, and goin tdy 6 months out of year when i'm at home station, and bein a cheap a$$ that alomst never buys anything new (gonna break that for this truck lol). the roller rockers are probably gonna hold of for a little, they are just a habbit from bein in gassers all my life. bottom end wise or i guess i should say block wise, minus the head studs, down the road when i get a CR i'm gonna totally redo her. i haven't put much of a list together for that yet since it's a long ways off and finding the parts at good prices eats up pretty much all of my free time out here. when i do put it together and we meet up sometime i'll tell ya what i'm thinkin and ya can help me out since obviously you have more experience in diesels than i do

Sounds like a good build plan. I would run a single stack on it myself, Single cabs pull off stacks way better then 4drs IMO......my only knock on the list would be the tires...I HATE KM2's.....They do not hold up well on these trucks. They wear like $hit, ride like $hit, and balance out like....you guessed it $HIT!!
