Dang you pirate faukers. You make guys like me take a perfectly good stock truck and dump a bazillion $$ and hours into it:


Moved the axle 2 inches forward. On 1st gen toys, full flex on 44044s that use the stock mount points in front = pinched fenders.

While I was in there, I removed that old longbed. Probably pulled 2 feet off the length of the truck total.

Designing the flatbed "as I go" w/ the assistance of this board, of course...

Rewired for LED tail lights, added tool box on the end.
Gave up driving an hour and a half to borrow a mig and plasma. I ordered a Lincoln SP-175.

Trees? I'm in Texas. It's all desert and cowboys here.
We've got a few. You maybe right that the box will be a rock / tree magnet - but it's easily replaced - and I haven't finished the flatbed yet..


I don't want the box up behind the cab because I'm planning on adding some rear seats and cutting the rear of the cab out. Trying something a little different. If it doesn't work out, I may move it. I appreciate the comments..

Tan 1st gens kick ass..
