Nice buy. Solid truck. Hope it has a good long term home instead of being an orphan.
What are the change plans?

The truck was sickening fast before, should be pretty cool when done.

Glad to see I sold it to someone that will give it some love. I had big plans for the truck as well but just didnt have the place to get things done the way I wanted to at this point in time...

Got just about every thing cut out today, just need to do some more clean up and grinding to make room for the new/used fuel safe.

Chop the rear frame off and build a new back half the truck would be 100% nicer and you could build the tube layout to fit the longer wheel base alot nicer for the bump zone..
