Thanks man, appreciate the complements. When it's all said and done, I always see what I could have done better / differently...


Here's a few pics of the rear shock mount. Wasn't certain how much the springs would settle and wanted to give myself some options...

Thanks guys! I'll get more pics off the computer at home and post them up soon. It's been like strolling down memory lane looking through the old pics...

Here's a couple misc pics of me not checking clearances before powder coat like an idiot! At that time I thought the finish line was in sight and I made some careless mistakes trying to get out and play with this thing. Little did I know at the time that the truck was still another 2 years from leaving the shop...

Got some free harnesses with the truck and made a mount... Looking back, should have just made the cage, but it was more project than I wanted to take on at the time. Still thought I was about to go play with this thing real soon at this point, but as it turned out the motor had other plans. I'll dig up more pics of all that soon...

Few more... Fwiw 1" thick wall square tube fit perfectly up under the bedrail for additional support...

Good golly. I once said I was going to "take my time and do it right." I now see that I was still a total hack.

Is it just me or is that filler neck replated with some sort of plating similar to what's on a grade 8 bolt?

Also, what did you use to form/bend the top piece of your steering box frame reinforcement?

As long as your never content with the end result you'll always be improving your skills... I've never looked at anything I've built and not seen room for improvement... but thank you for the compliments...

Thanks man, it had to be adjustable to account for the height difference in the tire depending on air pressure when mounted in the bed. It's worked out good so far...

Nothing special, just plated in a yellow zinc finish...

Friend of mine has a massive metal fab shop with all the coolest shit! Can bend up to 1/2" over at his place!!! The shear he's got over there shakes the fuckin earth when you cut thick stuff... I'm not allowed in there anymore without adult supervision though... long story...



Will put up more pics of the red truck being built soon...

I would love to know more about the yellow zinc plating process. Is it something that could be relatively inexpensive to do?

Very common, most any plating shop should be able to handle it.....

my ocd is pissed you cut the front of the bed like that

It is a sweet clean build. Sometimes I wish I had an extra cab










and a buddy with a huge metal fab shop.

Cut that out with the intent to mount an ammo can there sideways on each side for used wagbag storage. If you look at most any of our camping pics (first pic in this thread...) there's almost always a thick white compactor bag containing spent wag bags, would prefer that shit not be with all our camping gear in the bed...

But I have to agree with you, don't like the look of it myself...Too many projects!

Thank you. Other plans...? Well, lots of pics still to catch up to current... But there are still a few items on the list for this one. Stay tuned....



Needed a front bumper and didn't want to take the time to build my own...mistake. Picked up the TG bumper, could only get 3 of the 6 bolts to line up and it was 1/2" - 3/4" high passenger side. Test fit to our grey 85 with exact same results. Had to enlarge holes, plate mounting area, blah, blah, blah... and I'm still not fond of it, should have just built one. Here's a few old pics...
