Anyone have any digital images or know anything about a rock crawler built around (or to resemble) a 32 Ford T-Bucket? I think it was built by a shop called Dave's Offroad Equipment. I searched around...but found nada.

Thanks in advance.

There was a vehicle at ttc a few years ago that had a ford hot rod body (I am not sure if it was a t bucket). I think the vehicle was on an early bronco frame. It had 42 inch tires in the back and 38 inch tires up front. Maybe that is what you are looking for.

Possibly. I have seen only one digital image of this rig and it was a full tube body built around the body of the Ford It had four link suspension and long travel coil overs. It had 44 boggers in the rear and 44 TSLs in the front on beadlocks.

The one that was shown for the TTC is still around. I saw it on Cliff Hanger in Moab this past EJS.

The back tires were definitely larger than the front. It was pretty sick. I didn't get a pic though.

The color was pink or something kind of :rainbow: It should have been black....

Actually that is not it. But that is pretty darn cool. I found the one image that I do have. I would attach it, but it is 680k and I do not have a graphics program to shrink it with.

It's a Hot Rod thing, you wouldn't understand!


Just keeping it true to the Hot Rod style of big tyres in the back smalls in the front. Always loved ferris' rig, love to build something like it to combine my love of 4wheeling and hot rods:D
