    This is all I have loaded up right now except for some different views of the tail tube work.

    One of these days I'll get around to flexing it out with the forklift. Last time I did I had to chop more rear fender away. Would like to see if I cut enough.

    you guys are both wrong, that's one of those Isuzu 1.8s that they used in S10s in the early 80s.

    That was my past daily driver. Specs were 4" all spring, 33's, 350/700r4/208, Dana 44 and 14 bolt w/4.10's, disced, crossed. Electric fans, custom aluminum tonneau cover. Tube bumpers, Custom grille. All I can think of off the top of my head.

    Was a good truck just didn't do what i wanted it too. Too short for a tow rig, not good enough mileage to drive everyday. Didn't haul anything too well. It was just for fun. Already had an offroad rig and didn't see the need to beat that one to hell.

    I miss it!

    That has to be the most gorgeous truck I've seen in my life. Hands down... seriously. I love how rough it looks. GREAT WORK! Any way I could hire you to do some bumpers for me???

    Ok... I keep looking at other threads then just coming back to this one. Outstanding rig... really. When I get the money my dream rig would be that one right there. Props to such attention to detail...

    Well, I don't know if its all that! :blush: Keep in mind flat paint makes everybody a good body man which I am not!!

    I can do bumpers for ya. Got a couple that I'm working on now and the plate is pretty full but it just takes a little time.

    Yeah, I have to follow you over that way too, even if it is in my sad excuse of a 4x4...unless my truck has a working motor and lift by then. Course now that I said that it probably wont :doah:
