Gotta get a few final touches done before I put the turbo set up on. I want to have a good 5000mi on those piston rings first before I try and blow boost past 'em.

First I had to make it turn (shocks all the way around, front coils, front and rear sway bars) DONE

Then I had to make it stop: New 10" drums, shoes, hardware, calipers, rotors, pads. Added brake booster /master from a '91 crewcab. DONE

Now I can make it go : )

I'll post a build thread once it's done. Should be entertaining.

When I bought it it was army white on the front, primer on the back.
Everything underhood has been replaced now, every wire, everysender every vacuum line and hose and belts all of it.

It's getting some armor as well, front grill gaurd I fabbed up (which now has a little 3000lb winch on it), rear bumper/hitch stiffined with a piece of 54" long 3"x.188"wall tube inside it. Added 25gallon fuel tank in the bed as well so I can hold 55 gallons all told.
It'll be completely murdered out accept for headlights/taillights soon

1.25" is too small for a cage. Take a look at some of the rules in alot of the "race series" 1.5" should be the minimum you run. The OD of the tube has a much greater affect on strength then the wall thickness.
