Just curious but could you put a cab on the truck? If you could find something pre smog get it registered then switch the cab and vin over put the equipment in to make it street legal, blinkers, lights, window. Would be a like the street legal trophy prerunner

If you go to chp with anything like that you won't like the outcome.

I look at it from a liability standpoint. If I'm out and the local OHV area and a dumb ass in a UTV crosses my path and I take them out, even if it wasn't my fault, who will the widow go after? And what will they find if they start going over the vehicle? I would rather that all my ducks be in the same row.

I don't want to do anything that's sketchy I just want to get a green sticker on it so I can drive it in Glamis not too much to ask I'm just wondering how much this is going to end up costing jajaja

To go thru the front door with DMV-CHP-DMV cost should only be $125. If the vehicle was gifted to you you'll need that in writing. But being a chassis built by Jimco it should have a chassis number and CHP will look for that. Also, the engine and trans numbers, they'll want to know where they're from.

Sell it and get a turbo sidexside, have fun w/ less down and shop time.

You can't just drive a 2wd truck at Glamis without a 4x4 following to get you unstuck anyway. ;)

Ok.... So If I get a vin like that, how would I make that work on a tube frame?
Yeah.... that would work on a new build. I wouldn’t recommend moving vin tags around
Anyhow
You will get it done
Cool truck btw

Hey... Thanks, It's a step up from what I use to drive, a whole new learning curve for sure and about 700 hp more lol.
I'm going to contact Jimco for frame number locations and go from there

Cant believe no one has yet to offer up a cool sand toy in exchange for this non sand rig . All involved would be happy. Put it in the world it was meant to be in !
Great find BTW. Jealous for sure.

I was actually thinking the same thing! Actually now that you bring that up, I have a deal for Socalav8tor. I will trade you mine that is tagged and ready to go for your TT. I will handle all the Bull@#@ of getting it tagged in WA. Here is what you are going to get.
