    Hmmmm...I dont really know, actually. Its on a K-5 frame, but the rear axle was moved back about 14". It was about 4" higher and 4" forward of where it sits now, but the first body mount design (x-member type) didnt allow the trans to go up when I raised the t-case...SOOOOO, I got mad and ripped it all apart and remade the mounts. Now they come off of the chassis on each side. I am gonna get rid of the whole front clip and either use an old Hummvee hood (25 bucks down the road at a surplus store) or just tube it out. It will also have a full exo- when all is said and done.

    I knew a guy on ORC who made a hummeresque hood out of 'glassed styrofoam somehow, I think Payne knows how

    Anyone else remeber the Frank Vee?

    The Hummer hoods (military ones) will fit pretty good by cutting just the center out on each side of the headlights.

    I dont know---cant make up my mind!!

    The color is just tan camo that Lowes/home Depot sells.

    Yeah i dunno what ever happened to FrankP. He came back for a while last summer then he was gone again. His truck was interesting to say the least.
