Got some more pics, first of are the flares and flap hangers on the floor, then the dr. side welded in, cut out to the shape of the inner tube, then welded the length. I'll brace them back to the body later. Next is with the flare clipped on, then how the removable works.:smokin:

Fender flares and mudflaps are on, just need to be sheeted.

We have a test for customers shit.......It's called the "Carl Test". Carl climbs onto whatever we're building and bounces. If it moves seperate from the truck it's not strong enough. Figured on my truck everything has to pass, so we tested it.......For referance, that's three hundred and, well, .....................We'll say 300lbs. Mud flaps and flares are good to go:smokin: and they still only take about 10 seconds apiece to remove.

1. LOVE the rear bumper and spare shaft storage setup.
2. I never thought mudflaps could be cool, but you surprised me.
3. I thoroughly approve of the "Carl Test"

are you gonna stick with those tires for the trail?
I'm thinkin of doin luxton, I'm guessin you are.
I've got my eyes on a set of 47's right now to live on her.

"We" are helping to sponsor Luxton, my entrance fee is taken care of already, just need to fill out the paperwork.
If I can hold it all together, it should be a good show anyways.(for a bunch of rednecks that is)

Thanks
We like the carl test too:laughing:......I thoroughly abuse my junk, so if it won't stand up to Carl, I may as well not run it, and if it's leaving our shop, I like to be content that I would be willing to run it myself.:D

I've put those on all my trucks, so I've got a little practice, but I'd say about an hour........Kinda one of my trademarks.

Well I really liked it cool fab crazy workmanship till I saw the 49s and dual trannys I thought fawkin cool looks like a simple easy build that can get wheeled a bunch and really get it but now I see a lot of shit breaking that thing is a tank now. I live in the same area as you the terain here is rocky off camber tons of trees real tight shit and that truck is now much to tall and much too wide to really run any trails here, but if you are game anytime you wanna go out id be glad to take you for a run.

intrest level, 100%



interest level, 0%

you do very nice work, and are an excellent faber, just dont do so much of it.:(

I said it before, my shits for me. I can understand the lack of interest, but those tires aren't going to live there. I like the option to be able to bolt them on if I choose, but when it's said and done, I can't afford to drive on those full time. Fact of the matter is that in the end, it will likely get 38-42's and have a lot of room to flex. Besides, The amount cut out really isn't that much more than if I cut out for 42's, and still be really usable.

I'll let everyone know when it's done, and I do appreciate the feedback, so let me know.

Yup, I know the terrain, and I've got some small shit going together. My kids don't fit with me in a little truck, and short of the 49's, everything else makes for a fullsize built for the island. The rub bars and tight fitting bumpers and interior cage will make it fit most places that an exoed toy will.
As for the trannies, I've had them forever, and been wanting to run them again. I've my arguments why, or why not, but that's like asking why run duals in a Toy.? or put a 22re in a zuk?
This will work, and is damned near bulletproof. There's a few lines I want to take in a few places that the 49's will walk on, and with smaller tires I'll follow you anywhere.

I'll see you out there buddy;)

:laughing:perfect timing for that comment. I tried following him anywhere yesterday. Didn't work out so well for my rig.

My vote for tires is 40's to 42's. I run 38's and I need just a little more diff clearence.

I like the rub rails, I'm doin something similar but less beefy. We'll all have to head out in the fall.
