    Here is the deal, Some of you may remember me begining this build a while back thinking this would be a couple of weekends thing and I would be back on the road, well you all were right and I was wrong it was alittle more work than that but its done and I'm driving it daily now. So its time to name this ruby! I was calling it The Mutt since its made from so many different vehicles (1986 K5, 1977 K20, 1991 S10, Corvette Radiator, Ford Taurus Fan, Chevy Astro Steering shaft, ect.) anyway my wife says thats a stupid name and likes the name Rhino (due to the ridiculously tall stinger bumper I built for it. I don't know but I figured you guys might be able to come up with something more appropriate. So here is a link to the photos give it a crack guys. http://pg.photos.yahoo.com/ph/joshua632/album?.dir=/670d&.src=ph

    Thanks

    I am not one for naming vehicles, but it looks like a cool ride and should do real well on trails. You have any more detailed pictures of drivetrain and body mounting and such that others could use or get ideas from, I think that would help you get more of a response?

    i'm thinking Rhino is a good one.

    it does look a bit "excited" though. :D

    excited, huh? I hadn't thought of that but your right either my truck has a banana in his pocket or he's happy to see me! Ha! That opens it up to a whole other list of possible names doesn't it. Maybe I'll call it Ron Jeremy. :grin:
