    I saw this on e-Bay. Read the description and look at the pictures. There was a lot of custom work done to that truck, but the seller doesn't seem to know much about it. He mentions a GT steering wheel, dual shocks and a subwoofer, but never really touches on all the custom work done other than saying there was "A lot of custom work done".

    How do you end up with a truck like that if you don't know a thing about it? Do you think it's some rich kid who's father paid to have it built? Do you think he bought it on e-Bay a month earlier and found out it wasn't streetable or wheelable and is now selling it?

    But you know what... at least the truck doesn't have stupidly large leaf springs lifting it.

    Did you see the chain drive for the rear driveshaft?

    Look close in the 5th picture down on the left side of his list. You can see the "custom gear driven front shaft (sounds like a turbo off the line)" Looks like it's made from old motorcycle parts. :rolleyes:

    Most of those eBay specials don't even have front driveshafts. He tried and failed, but he tried.
