Here is some pics of the truck. This first pic is what it used to look like about a year and a half ago after I put the new front end on though. I lost the front headlight and turn signals while jumping it one day.

This was a fun jump

Here are some pics of the bed setup. the radiator is mounted a little differently in the bed now because I bought an aluminum rad and had to modify it some. Same placement though. Two spare tires as well.

A lot more pics too come. Ive also redid the front shock towers to accomodate more travel. Ive done the chevy v8 swap and built a tubular front clip. We are modifying the rear bumper so it wraps around and I am going to build a tubular/sheetmetal dash and am shortening the front frame about 6 inches and building a beefy prerunner bumper. Than when I am done I am plating the bottom of the truck from the bumper to the rear of the tranny. Ill add pics when I can. What do you guys think? Any suggestions for future mods?

Nice toy <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> I would love to see some pics of your suspension. Looks like lots of fun when you get going fast, Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeee. What top speed can you reach? Are you planning on ever running mid-engine? Or is that another project <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

He is my brother and in the sand we were doing about 60-65 mph. <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> On the highway it'll do about 80, but when the death wobble kicks in I soil his seat. <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> We'll try to get some more pics.

PEACE
