    Sweet....I'll also point out that he has about 5 inches of suspension lift.(i think)

    Did you get it narrowed yet? I can't really tell from the pics.

    Why narrow that body? Just pull the body off and weld a tube frame/ roll cage to the existing frame. Looks like a sweet truck though.

    When all else fails... Check the blinker fluid.

    Me like.


    Looks like I started something with the red bead lock rings. 'Cept my wheels (and truck) are white. Got red tie downs for the trailer, too.


    ROCKBUGGY, you may have already done something similar, but I converted my door hinges to a quick release type. If you want details, I just posted them under the topic "door hinges" (or something close).

    WOW, your suspension is almost exactly what I currently run, and I want to run the same tires, I can see I have a little more cutting to do. [​IMG]

    yep break out that sawzall, and i got bad news even with that much cuting at max flex and at full lock, the tires barley touch front and rear, so that is the bear minimum cutting, however i did retain the inner fenders, i can send you the template for the cuting if your interested.........hey i got a question for ya steve what are u doing for steering i think im going full hydro or crossover with agr rockram cant decide what are u doing on your 60 for steering

    Going to try and get cross over done before monday, would like it for EJS, I might try the AGR rock ram, but would like to hear how it does on the trail first, but that might be a little down my list, need to get my TH400 and doubler in before that.

    Yeah, might have to cut out part of the radiator support and move the axle forward.

    Moving the axle forward would also help alleviate engine cross member clearance problems with the cross over.

    Why the TH400? Isn't that truck your daily driver? Forget what motor and gears you're running, but I always though it was nice to be able to cruise 90-95 at 3000 RRM.

    ROCKBUGGY K5, do you know what offset your wheels are?

    I think dark green or green camo with lime green looks awsome. That's what I'm gonna do. The red and black would look cool too. That didn't help much but I'd go with green camo and lime green. Check out these pics:
