Thanks Jon.
I had an image of what i wanted the truck to look like and how i needed it to perform. When i stumbled upon your build, it was pretty much the look that i had in mind except it was in full color and not in pencil and computer sketches.

Your truck was quite the inspiration for my build.

I'll check out the links.
when are you coming back down south? I think i may head home to indiana this weekend if i don't make the URA meet.

Yea. There still there. I have em wire tied and surprised they still work.
Need to go to the yamaha dealer today and look around. See what they got. Most all bikes have em on stalks but there's a few flush mounts that look like they may work. I'm going to try and mod them into the 2 little plastic pieces in the grill that look like vents.(fake). Just havn't messed with it much since they still work.

I was looking at that idea as well. When you say "slack", your talking about the turn signal wiring harness, correct? It looks like there is enough there to just pull on up and maybe drill a new hole in the back of the headlight and mount it right in.
That looks very doable to be. If you get a chance this weekend, throw up some pics in here for me.

Hey haus I love your truck. I really wish my 2.7 was a 4 door. Not really of a fan of the 1st gen 3.4's so yours is perfect in my opinion. Haha.

I would leave the flares just because they save your paint especcially if your considering off road use and what not. Try getting some gloss black spray paint and putting 3 or 4 light coats on them and see what you think. They will look much better I think you will want them back on your truck.

I used photomatix to render the fake slr/hdr images. i wish I had a good slr camera but i'm stuck with this shitty 7.2 meg cybershot. I'm envious of the guys that post up with there camera rigs and know when, where and how to take a picture.
And once again Tacomarroto.... thx for the inspiration.
