Default Monsters MiniTruck build(Minus Air Bags)

Sup party people, figured I would post up a build thread for my truck. Its gonna be a long and slow thread since I do things alittle at a time, but pretty soon will be handing it over to a guy in Alabama to do the suspension, cage, RHD conversion, stock floor body drop and redoing the fenders when the BD is done for wheel clearance(think GarageMiniz)

Onto the pics from when I first got it till now
When I first purchased it


After lowering a bit


Better view with huge tires on stock steelies


Got these wheels off a customer for the el cheapo


installed on some 195/55/15 just to see how it would look


they rubbed hard, this is pre-fender roll




after fender roll(pipe method....lol)






Chillen in my driveway


Alignment, 3degrees negative camber


Belltech 3" lowering leaf springs




No more wheel gap in rear

Factory corner lights from New Zealand



Need to tape the lenses and paint the trim black to match the bumper and grille




doing a once over on my truck before hitting the road to Floriduh(oil change, checking suspension, check brakes, rotate/balance tires and top off rear diff and trans)


Route to Fl


5:45am, Filled up about to hit I95 south


95mph on I95


Finally after 8hrs, I'm in Whorelando, Fl


SC12 supercharger I forgot I had in the garage, will rebuild and abuse it some



7AGE motor loaded up first



Filled up and ready for the 10hr trip that evening



And finally today, installed my 15x10s' on scrap 195/60/15 tires I used to roll and pull my fenders some. Gotta do the rears tomorrow and also install my 195/50/15 tires at the shop as well(Gotta love working for a tire shop)










And thats about it, Got alot planned for this truck and is gonna be a full build for myself since I haven't built anything for myself since 2002, so I'm gonna have some fun with this one.

I think your new wheels were off a chevy astrovan or something. I see them on a van that I pass everyday on the way to class and always thought they would look dope on something slammed. Good work.

this is my wet dream drift/stance build. cant wait to see moar... btw i almost sure the 15x10s you have there are Western wheels. they are very popular with the 4x4 offroad crowd in the 70's&80's, they also are on the A-Team van. Badass....

Thanks man, this is what this build is gonna focus on. But I wanna be able to drive it on the street as well as be functional on the track. And you are correct about the wheels, I had people wanting to buy them before I even put them onto my truck. lol

Now the question is................do I stay 6lug or convert to 4lug? I have a set of wheels in mind only available in 4lug and had them on a Corolla in the late 90s, or stay 6lug and get some more of these wheels

I also installed my 195/50/15s onto them this morning

I vote leave the 6-lug. 6x135 wheels are everywhere. Looks great on those Westerns, I feel like it needs a dirty amount of flare or over-fender to be complete though.

I think with the amount of poke you've got going on, fender flares or overfenders would look great.

I've honestly thought about that when a friend of mine mentioned it after purchasing the wheels a few months back. But I just wanted to see if I can pull the stock fenders to clear and the fronts I know I can now. Lol, but we'll see about the rears when I can get to them Friday.

You are right, I have been on the hunt for 4x4 fenders and 2dr Pathfinder rear 1/4panels. But no luck yet, but I will do a pull first and go from there. If it doesn't look good, I'll cut the fenders open make some flairs for it

Ive heard them being called Hurricanes as well, so I honestly don't know. lol. I don't know the offset, but I could figure it out friday for ya if interested. And if you see any 2dr pathfinders and happen to have a cutoff wheel, let me know, I'll pay for the 1/4s and your time

I'm going with QA1 coilovers all around, 5link rear, 8.8 Ford Exploder rear axle with 4.10 gears, S13 RHD rack/pinion steering, cage etc etc etc..........
