Hello and welcome! Read as much or as little as you want, but here's the build on the STLharry Truck.

This is how it started:

The new one had a few problems, like a crunchy clutch release bearing, rock sliders not cut to the correct width (stuck out too far), and the billet grille (not a fan).

First day back in VT with the truck:

First thing first...The truck needed a front end swap. The write-up for that is here.

Quality finish:

The next part I don't have pictures for, but essentially I swapped the truck's suspensions, putting OME (with new springs) into this one and putting the old stock stuff back into the old truck. A toolbox was also painted black and added to the truck. Here is the truck after the swap:

The rest of the modifications are in posts lower down.

I'm a little confused. You put the older front end on the 01? Just trying to figure it out.

I love that bumper. Especially on first gens.

STLharry 10-10-2010 08:16 AM

Hah yup. I like it more, plus I had that hideous billet grille to remove...

To be honest, I think I like the older one more to. Looks more like the pickup that I've spent so many hours drooling over in back to the future.

Man, Vermont is getting all grown up looking.

When I lived there it was so quaint.

Yeah, we have a lot of development around the Burlington area. That's at a bLowe's obviously.

Now why would I do that :)

Skipped straight to the TW search ft. then on to Google. Oi.

I just dig the bumper, it's like TG's but low-pro which is what i'm looking for.

Does he have any plans to make more? and/or can you post pics of any more angles of it?

Hmm...he and I made that thing 3.5 years ago but I can ask him for sure. As for the site I asked him and he hasn't exactly updated it in a while. I guess his fab work is on hold for the time being. But we designed it and he made it pretty much on the fly so I'm sure he could do it again.
