Default FAST Fabrication 94 b4000 turn into SNORE class 7 race truck

This is our first full truck build, my brothers 2001 HnM prerunner we have done bumpers and bed cage and glass install on it. We do trailer work, upholstery, and all kinds of metal fab work.

So it started out as a extended cab 1994 Mazda B4000, for years I had 33s and a front clip and 6" bedsides on it with no suspension because the front was in an accident. Two months before the full build I had installed an extended beam kit with coil buckets, a 8.8 rear-end (now in brothers truck) and made the front clip tilt.

Then we gutted the entire truck, I have so much for sale from electrical stuff, to panels, to gas tank, etc.

Cut the back of the Cab off and here is/was the plans:

-2" d.o.m. main cab cage with 1 3/4 d.o.m. support tubes and throughout back half and engine cage
-Equal length front d44 boxed beam kit with crossover steering strapped at 20"
-GMR boxed race links, with GMR fully trussed 3.5" housing
-Scheiner Enterprises 2.5" full floater hubs, Wilwood 4 piston calipers and rotors
-35 spline 4340 Superior axles, strange light weight spool, 5:43 ring and pinion, billet nascar pinion support, 1350 yoke, Currie 9 plus race nodular
-All four corners have 2.0 by 4" bumps, 2.5" dual rate coilovers, and 2.5" triple bypasses, 2 quad limit straps with clevis
-Jaz 32 gallon jeepspeed fuel cell
-Built a Wishbone for 3-link
-Grade 8 hardware through out with Fk heims and spacers
-10" flat top bedsides 2005 and newer ranger front clip
- 2 suspension seats with 3" 5 point harness
-Built Custom steering column with quick disconnect
-Built removable spare tire setup
-4 led light box
-5 kmc enduro bead locks on 35" wheels 5x5.5
-battery box in rear with dual yellow tops
-and much more

I like to give a special thanks to our current sponsors, their product has been amazing and their help has been superb. We can get you any of their products as well.

FK Bearing (fkrodends.com): supplied us with all of our heims JMX series, high mis-align spacers, uniballs and cups, bungs, and jam nuts

G Machine Racing (thegmr.com): Owner Jason Heard has been so helpful in setting up his 3 link boxed links as well as making us a second housing for the bigger hubs

Sway-A-Way (swayaway.com) supplied all our shocks 4- 2.0 by 4" bumps, 2-2.5 by 14" coilovers, 2-2.5 by 16" coilovers, 2-2.5 by 16" triple bypasses, and 2-2.5by 18" triple bypasses

Glassworks Unlimited (glassworksunlimited.com) supplied their new 2005 ultimate 85" wide ranger clip and their big boy 10" flat top bedsides

Vision X Off-road (visionoffroad.com) will be supplying 5 of their H.I.D.s and 3 of their big Halogens

Suspension Spring Specialists (bluecoilspring.com) supplied their Blue Coil springs powder coated black giving the truck a perfect stance at ride height

PRP Seats (prpseats.com) supplied two of their completion seats, 2 of their 3" 5 point harnesses, 4 coilover covers, and two custom window nets

Optima Batteries supplied the two yellow top batteries

and of course F.A.S.T. Industries with the divisions of FAST Fabrication, TEAM FAST Racing, and soon FASt Apparel and FAST Media & Web Development

ill post a lot more pics tonight... I have full build threads on DR and Race Dezert but decided to post on more sites for sponsors and to expand our company. Ill post some pics of the A-Arm ranger to


Also if any of you guys use the harbor freight jack or any kind of aluminum jack we make skids to mount them in the back of your truck. They go from 30-50 depending on what you want if you want dimpled, welded or press break tabs, and if you want to be able to bolt it on or just weld it on.

Went in like this

Add 400 ft of metal


Cut back off first

Started with a 2” dom main cab cage and 1 supports welded to the frame







Cut roof to fully weld tube


Went through back and made first part of frame to where housing would hit metal, with 2” and 1 3.4
(old housing in pic)



Started on engine cage and front suspension install





Bottom coil was to long had to get shorter length


Front will be getting custom uniball spindles and full floating 2.25 hubs by the end of build
Built the wishbone for the 3 link


Mounted fuel cell and got it into a roller, this is how it look when I took it from shop in CA (Jan 2010) to my shop in AZ (April 2010)





Roller, with new correct bottom coils
