    Everyones been asking so heres my build. started off with a stock 91 pickup. I put a 2" body lift on it and some 33's and wheeled it. decided i wanted more fo i did a 4" suspension lift, wheeled it, then got some 35's. I put some 4.88 gears, winch and left it like that for awhile. After I wheeled more the ifs was not cutting it. I found a good deal on an axel brought it home rebuild it and the build begins. Cut all the ifs out.. ended up cutting both of my legs above the knee to the muscle.. that put a hold on things. After all healed up all the welding begins. when i put the axel in i moved it 2" forward. I used trailgears sas kit. 53" chevy in the rear. total of 6" suspension and a 1" body. and locked the rear. Wheeled for a long time, sold it (dont know why). the guy that baught it ended up rolling the truck. He called and asked if i wanted it back and yes I have it back. since then I cut the roof off. caged it, bed lined the whole truck. I am now looking at dual cases, front locker, 5.29, 37's.

    Sick as fuckkk. I had a 1991 V6 standard cab. it was a badass little rig. burned oil tho. I regret not keeping it, but building two trucks didnt seem feasible. good for you getting your baby back ,and improving it. obviously homecheese wheeled it too hard without knowing how to drive it.

    nice!!

    i rolled my hilux doing donuts on a dry empty lakebed:D decided to keep the cab on since it all banged back mostly together with hammers and with using a 60" hilift jack. and then eventually got around in caging it:eek:

    sweeet f*ing ride. flat bed would be sick, but leaving the bed would be a practical move. all you need left is to slap on a gun rack.
