Taco'd Taco

This truck was built about 3 years ago and I have just recently started putting some wrenches to it.

Cut and paste from build thread on COTTORA.org

I welded casters to the frame so we could wheel it out, it didn't work they were too damn weak and one flopped over.

it would have worked if I had actually got the right casters instead of using what i had in the shop.

ORIG Frame and cab ready to come out.

Up in the air with it!


Motor and tranny going on new frame.

One big step towards and even happier Kevin.


hastily back in the garage!

the old frame

Picked up these 1.25" spacers over at Slee Offroad last Monday.


The new Hotness!


They rub like a chinese massage parlor in the turns but after the 1" body lift and some cranking of the coil overs I should be good to go.

The front sticks out 1.25 more than the rear

Just have to get the top braces on and it's done.


The ends with the bottom bracket on. It bolts to the frame through the factory tow points.

WOW! That has come a long way. Impressive to say the least! Looks great. I'm sure you're glad to have it back and running again with a straight frame.
