AllGoNoShow Thought I would add a little update, I have not wheeled it since June. I plan on taking it on a Halloween trip. Plans for winter are to chop off the cab, build all new cage work with a big bench in the rear, thus making it a 5 seater. Think fullsize firewall buggy. I will keep the front fenders/hood/bedsides intact if possible.

AllGoNoShow Thanks guys, I tied the front truss into the front diff before the run. I also welded the doors shut, and installed my hand made copper drink holders. The drink holders "snap" the drink into place at the bottom, you could roll onto your top and the can would still not come out. You can also unbolt them from the rig and use them as koozies.

AllGoNoShow Had a great time wheeling this weekend. The ol' Ford held up great.

The final hill climb out of the trail required every inch of the 466 Ford. It took me like 5 or 6 tries, but I finally made it without pulling cable. Pictures don't do this hill any justice.

With finesse. In reality it popped open that day and I couldn't get it to shut, the door striker and hinges of the door have pulled so far apart that the mechanism wasn't even touching the striker. I got it back to the shop and spaced the striker out, with a little work from a BFH and prybar, I got it to shut again.

I am not cutting off any sheetmetal, I like the look of modified sheetmetal.

Yeah they are recentered. They are trail worthy fab pressed center 8 bolts, with their pvc inserts. I had the rock rings cut out locally and I welded them on, they are 1/4'' thick and beat all to hell. The whole package is pretty heavy, but the 460 doesn't seem to mind too much

They work absolutely awesome with the double beadlocks. I run them at 2psi in the rear and 4psi in the front. They will literally conform and "grab" rocks/logs. I have ran TSL's, Iroks, and Boggers. Boggers have worked the best, but I did not have beadlocks that allowed me to air down so low so that may be part of it.

AllGoNoShow Here you go.

Buddy of mine and I took the truck out for a few hours on New Years Eve. Not many pics but we had fun.

This picture does this obstacle no justice, it is the same one that I broke the stock Ford knuckle on, and grenade driveshaft joints on. I was denied again, you have to hit it at an angle with trees behind and to the side, then there are 3 big undercuts while going uphill, I would love to see someone conquer it. I was either going to yardsale the truck or winch...it was getting dark so I winched.
