Hey, that's the GPITW! Admired it when it was an exchange student visiting Chicago.

GPITW? Yeah Luke, it lived in Chicago for a couple years at Eric G's house. He was awesome enough to sell it back to me.

I love my cruiser, I think we all do. Been building this one for almost 9 years and it's pretty much exactly what I want now. Aluminum tub, twin steering rockwells, 8274, 5.0L EFI, Stazworks rims, etc...

wow that's the lowest rockwell rig I've ever seen. Nice work.

How did you manage to fit everything in there? top loaders are crazy tall.

I think we need some close up pics

First off, MikA1 - that's a sweet ass cruiser. Nice one!


I'm running full width. I was originally planning on shortening the long side with short side shafts, but with the setup I have it would either hit the oilpan or the frame without doing both sides... I didn't want custom length shafts.

Don't have any wonderful closeups - here's a couple shots that show it a bit clearer when I had 44's last year.

I love this thread! That being said, I'm not nearly talented enough to wheel a full bodied rig, so I had to make my FJ40 dreams in tube. Nothing Yota except a hood, so let me know if it doesn't belong here...I'll still love FJ40's.

Finally finished getting the 42 trail ready.

Longs, 5.29s, ARBs, and some stuff. Currently trying to find a RHD 60 PS box to use for hydro.
