Alright folks, its home. So now the fun begins. Plans are to get some 35in m/t's and run it as is for now. Then slowely add lift, flex, tires, gears, and lockers. I may weld the rear end now for fun.

All after its registered of course. :banghead:

Here are the pics of it at home

That front end looks pretty! But the rust on the toolbox is :yuck: Guess its only natural to have a little rust on an old white pickup though. Get that thing registered and start wheelin'! We miss you...

Damn nice! What's the wheel diameter and tread-depth on those BFGs? If you're going to replace them with MTs and they're 15 inch wheel then I'd be interested. Though I'm fairly certain those are 16.5s arent they?

yup, 16.5's, and they are nolans. I have rims and 2 worn out BFG M/T's. Once I spend all my money on registering it, ill see what i can scrounge up for tires.

What did you do with all the crap that was in the back of the truck when you picked it up?

Hes got some good ass eyes. If you look at the interior pic, you can see the fuel/temp guage in the dash, if there were a tach, it would have been visible.

I will probably add one, since there is no OD id like to know what im spinning at on the freeway.


CJ, its all on the side of the house now.

i seem to remember those cases feeling loose, especailly if it was ever a tow rig. if it's bad look into a doubler... you wont regret it.
