Wow, that thing is so cool, I'm going to let the caps slide, lol. Screw the sides, I think it rocks as is. Nice clean looking tubework. I would like to see more pics after the front is back on also. Nice to see some good tech tossed in here. I might have to copy some of the design off of this thing if things go the way I plan. Again, sweet looking rig and thanks for posting!

dave gets to do the boat sides,i want him to feel like he did more than watch and grind tube!!!
And it will get a bunch more tube,seat mounts(that tie both door rails together)and an X behind the cab so when throttle clown gets a little crazy he wont bend it right away!!As well as a front hoop support for the radiator that ties into the main cage through the fire wall!!

shot of the interior cage!!

and another!!!It will get some more support tubes!!!
AND THINK IT LOOKED LIKE THIS LAST FRIDAY!!!

Throttle still has the title and has and can register this truck,as far as the full hydro steering, didnt the sniper have full hydro a few years back???
