    Default Truck stuff and things

    whats up guys! starting a new build thread because i sold my car a couple weeks ago

    this thing...


    i bought a house late last year and the car became very impractical. i was paying to much and couldnt do half the projects around the house that i wanted to. so i went back to my old redneck ways and picked this thing up



    1995 4.3l, 5 speed, 2wd s10

    its about as fast as a turtle. but it is rust free from texas and supposedly only has 110k on it. it needs an axle because 3.08 gears suck dick, and a lot of other small stuff like interior plastic and exhaust.

    this past weekend i got a ricey grant steering wheel. already installed, stock one was fall apart and this was $35. may dye the red later



    next i received my wheels so i had to test fit. they should be mounted this friday





    then i did some cutting and installed my rear blocks. just a heads up, sawzalls suck for cutting through coils



    so now the truck is lowered 2/3. front appears a bit higher so i may cut another half coil and go 3/3 this weekend. im just waiting to mount wheels so i can more easily measure the gap to top of fender.



    i do have plans to go lower in the future, thinking somewhere around 4/5 on 17 or 18's

    I've always wondered what you could do to an S10 (right?) Can't wait to see what the rims look like on this thing!
    Whatever path you take to get to your automotive nirvana is the right path, everyone’s path is different. If more people liked cars because they are cars—not because they are a way to get attention or to way to be better than someone else—then I think the automotive world would be a better place. -benmassey

    I was wondering where the A4 updates had gone...

    And happy to see another lowered truck build, and from someone who updates frequently! All of the builds seem to die out on them...

    truck builds have always been my favorite thing on the forum, i know how much it sucks when they die out. hopefully i can continue to post! i have big plans for the truck, just need my life to get back in order and then i can start executing them

    sorry to disappoint lol someday i might make it to the track. i have visions of either autocross or drift type truck. just need to keep buying parts to get there.

    i dropped off my wheels and tires this morning, they probably will look a bit funky being so small. i had planned on using the tires that were on the truck but found out last night that 1 single tire was different from the rest in height. more pics of truck and puppy to come

    spent most of the weekend recovering from my friday adventure which consisted of me nearly getting in a fight with a dude who i thought took my keys at a bar....they were in the car the whole time, i was just super drunk.

    on the way there, a bit drunk


    on the way back, blackout drunk


    some more pics of the truck as of right now

    a few pics from the past few days. last night i pulled the passenger side spring and cut off another 1/4 coil to try and fix the lean but somehow i just made it worse. think i may have put the spring in a little wrong. itll bounce itself into place eventually lol

    Went to a local cars and coffee this morning. Snapped this before leaving



    Then I came home and went to leave 5 minutes later but the fuel pump said I could suck a fat one. So I had to do this

    i dont have any updates, just here for input.

    what are peoples opinions on jap styling on the truck? more low, blast pipes, fender mirrors, maybe small diameter but 10" wide wheels with big stretched tires on them, and then flares? ive been tossing around the idea but im not totally set on it

    Minitruck Squad! If you have a rust free truck like you say, you will have yourself an good platform to build off of.

    This is my truck back when it was in its prime static. Its now bagged but I do miss the days...

    Maybe I'm just ghetto, but I kinda like the bumperless look- gives it kind of a rat-roddiness. IDK

    Did some things today. Blast pipe, hopefully fixed the lean (my sway bar bushing had shifters so there was no pressure on one side) also painted my centers. Not a huge fan, might paint whole wheel darker grey
