Nope. Foutz's 7 is a different design, and A-arms up front. He's a BFG guy too....
Is this something Newhan is building, JB?

John Bitting

No Newhan and No Foutz. It is Jason Jernigan's new 7 open truck.. We will post more pics as soon as the body is painted. It is going to look very good...

As far as I know Newhan is just building Bob Gall(sp) another truck out of his garage shop.
I dont know if it's another Ranger or fullsize. Im sure it will show up in OffRoad magazine when its ready.
Whos building this truck?

Theres was a really cool J-Arm Ranger with Chevy V8 power at the ORW / Fud/ CODE drawing this past Saturday at ORW Escondildo . Built by Currey-Fab out of Ensenada. Very clean and setup nicely.
Also the Protruck of EJR racing <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.ejrracing.com/>http://www.ejrracing.com/</A> and Chuck Hoveys new "1" car.

Curry Fab is not in Ensenada he is in Mexicali and I believe Robert Wagner aka "stinky" did most of Jasons truck.

If you ever happen to see this truck up close check out the quality of the welds on it. Robert has a reputation for being one of the finest tig welders out there.

37" of travel with frame rails
nothing short of amazing

its not speeding unless its a triple digit

The motor from the Explorer is a SOHC not DOHC. Ford doesnt make a DOHC that I know of for the trucks, and for sure not in the Explorer.

I own a SOHC 97 Explorer.
