No really... Ever since I got it in my head that I wanted a REPU I said I wanted to build a Pro-Touring truck and here you are on track to do just that! Seriously your build will be a blue print!

What made you decide to do a panhard bar vs. a watts link? Packaging due to current coilover location? Drag Car?

Looks great so far.

I have a watts link as well. No, not specifically drag. More of a "do whatever I want" truck.

Semi-confused. Doesn't a watts link have two frame attachment points and is actuated on a cam on the center of the axle housing? Not sure i've ever seen a watts link and a panhard bar before.

Yes you are correct about the watts link. I will run one or the other depending on the specific situation that i am in. There is also a sway bar for the panhard bar.

Here is a stock frame vs the new frame




This is stock frame weight vs new frame ( Stripped stock frame so weight comparison would be the same )

If you are asking if they will "bolt on" to any year first gen, then no.
