Only if you win, they will protest if you don't have working doors.
That's fine, they can protest a guy with a full frame, engine in stock location and weighs im sure a ton more. lol. most the guys I know that we are running against are pretty dang fast. We are slow pokes from Utah. I wish guys would either run class 8 or heavy metal. No bitchin or whiners.

Are you running the armor craft chassis? Rich is working in my F-150 right now.

The Truck Class 8 above is a 1976 Chevy chassis, it was built by Geiser Brothers for CWI originally in 1990. Im currently restoring it and upgrading it. You might be thinking of the Armor Craft 7200 chassis truck I converted into a 6100 a few years back.

The 7200 class is V6 Unlimited, The 6100 class is Spec Motor Class other then that its unlimited. The 7200 conversion was a Co-Owned 7200 truck with Russ Ramsay and the owner of Armorcraft, I never new his name. I rebuilt the truck into a 6100, I removed the top cage and the entire back of the truck, When done we removed 565 pounds, Wet loaded weight on the starting line no driver or co-dog was 5165 pounds. I could send pics of the back but it was no linger a Armorcraft, we built a whole new aluminum dash as well.

ok cool. Awesome truck. Yeah the owner is building my truck now. His name was rich Clarke. Used to own Armorcraft in San Marcos. He used to have a blue Tacoma with burgundy rims and a Lexus v8 in it. Thanks for the response. Nice trucks.
