Well, here is my truck after massive frame repair and suspension and body lift. A friend and I rebuilt the frame from the middle of the cab-back and put some Chevy springs in the rear with 3/4 elliptical.


How ya like it?

I'm not exactly sure what that bed was made for. It's a fiberglass bed that I found on an old long bed 2wd Toyota in a junkyard. I had to cut 11" out of it between the wheel well and the front so that it would fit my wheelbase, and I just recently bobbed it about 9 inches.
The swampers are 32"x11.50" and fit a lot better now that the truck's been lifted.

Hey red86yota,

Hey Toy4x4boy, I'm from Three Oaks, MI. It's about an hour away from Kalamazoo It's south of Benton Harbor if you know where that is. I'm going to school in Flint, and a couple of us are thinking about making a trip to the Silver Lake sand dunes in a couple weeks. The dunes are probably like 2 or 3 hours from Kalamazoo. Let me know if you think you might want to go.
I like the tailgate.
Thanks, I like it too.
