    I thought they were going for a 79 series Land Cruiser front end...

    [​IMG]

    ...So when I saw the end result, I was confused. 80 series lights with a Voltron grille and a disfunctionally short bed? I don't get it.

    But I would rock that tail gate!

    While I can appreciate the time, effort, creativity, and skill that went into this build....I think its hideous.

    The color scheme looks like something you'd see on a Hi-lux in Asscrackastan.

    That front end looks like someone who has a face too small for their head. Like eyes, nose, and mouth are too close together kinda thing...
    Should have just done a motor swap into a good condition 1st gen pick up and added modern tech to the inside. Basically a pro touring type thing but with a 4x4 truck. Better frame, would look better, and easier IMO. Yes they have skills but a poor vision.

    That truck was built by "Containerized" on ExPo. It's a couple of years old at this point but he had a build thread he made while it was under construction. The truck is used in Africa, I can't recall off the top of my head which country he works in though. This isn't his first vehicle build; he's got some really, really nice stuff.

    Found the thread:

    Interesting.

    I feel like the front bumper is mounted entirely too low. Like it should be where the filler panel is under the lights.

    I dig the stripes and tailgate though
