    Hey Everybody ...

    Just became a member... You can find me on xrunnerunderground, however. LOVE my truck , 06 Radiant Red 6sp w-custom gaylords speedster bed cover. Currently in paint shop for last eight weeks getting a NASCAR Truck Series paint job. Also have designed special decals for it after paint cures. Will have pics maybe in two weeks of paint job only.

    Am a retired 64 yr old gear head that grew up with muscle cars, 7 vettes, raced big block jet boats and cars in the 10 second range and now I want to create a track truck with this X-Runner. Have narrowed down the drive train to one of two options that include either a LS3 w/LS6 heads and 6sp tremec or an all out 4.0 V6, patterned after the 08 SEMA X-Runner My son-in-law is a race car rolling chassis fabricator and has also agreed to fab a 4 point rear suspension sys for me.

    Our goal is to create a streetable track truck. I'm interested in getting any info, ideas, suggestions or tips pertinent to my goals.

    Merry Christmas All!

    Welcome to TW!!! Sounds like an impressive ride can't wait to see pic's. Does your son-in-law work for one of the NASCAR teams?

    Yep he worked for Smitty Motorsports in Mexico Ny, Mullen Motorsports and Penske.

    Currently he is trying to start his own company to design and fabricate rolling chassis for SCCA Sprint cars, which is what he did for Smitty & Mullen.
