    What in the hell did you do to that beautiful truck? Looked awesome when you had the TSL/SX's on it (and a body). What size were those?

    This is my new project...
    [​IMG]

    ...it will be a street legal truck that I will not be scared to drive 3 hours to the trail with a few friends in it, wheel all day, then drive it 3 hours home afterwards.

    I will be using the axles, driveshafts, and some other items from the old Jimmy. I will be documenting all the mod's to this new truck, so keep an eye out for some of the trick stuff I will be building for this new truck. :cool1:

    There are a few reasons why I finally decided to dismantle the truck. I am moving and do not have the storage space that I use to for the truck & trailer, I don't have a reliable enough tow vehicle, and the main reason was that I did not like the way the truck turned out. I was planning to keep the whole drivetrain and build a tube chassis for eveything, but still would have to rely on a tow vehicle and trailer to get it to the trails.
