    Default Just a Truck.

    Well this is the little truck that could. Got this when i started driving and had it since. Is my only vehicle that ive owned that was "Street Legal" lol. This is my "DAILY DRIVER" for my drive back in forth to school and work and anywhere else that life takes me. Payed for it all myself since i didnt have an support from the parents since they helped support my racing. This has been on an going process for 4 years now. It's had its up and down's but thats life. When i got the truck is barley ran and i got it cheap and basically had to replace everything to get it to running correctly. I don't have any pics of replacing the odds n ends when i got it sorryz. Now it runs like a champ. At first i was going to have this thing bagged and laidout once i had the money but i want a challenge and i am going to keep it static.

    Where she sits now. Its getting cold here in PA and that means build times starts now!
    This winter will be rough but looking to complete it as a track truck but with a taste of stance.

    I like the work done to it and everything, and this will be totally unfair, but the mini truck guys who bag these things look sooo much lower. sorta gives you a tainted view of them overall.

    Thanks, Yeah all of my mini truck buddies are on bag setups but im not into it that much. Yeah it would be great but its alot of work and on top of everything this is my daily driver and the roads here in PA are insanely bad.

    First SW mistake right there, the roads are terrible wherever you go. Just like everything else in life; where there is a will, there is a way and cars are no different. You can always change the way you drive to deal with roads.

    And on another note, I might be able to make it out to Sonic this Monday with you guys... I'll let you know for sure if I can.

    Went to the Junk Yard this morning to start collecting some things for the winter project. Got very lucky for once and picked up the new sonoma setup. This is just for mocking up since i have to change core supports and other odds n ends. Not sure what im going to do with grill color or headlights yet but either way this is for mockup. Ill buy all new things once finalized.

    I'd do body color on the grille. Black is tacky.


    If it's worth doing, it's worth doing right.

    Your blast pipes look stupid.
