Thanks for all the compliments....and yeah, we did put a ton of time into it in the past month. Just as his wife or my girlfriend:tonka:

Yeah it was all done with my Hobart. I wouldn't exactly call a Handler 210 'little' but that's what did the work....I love that welder.

Yep, that's him. The truck just went back to his house in that form on Monday though.

Very nice truck!

I would drop the 60+ mph dune thing though, otherwise I want to see it done. Or, is it a drag queen?????

Running the dunes at 60+ is for the long travel buggies.

Very nice work. How much fender trimming would be required to pull the rear block and drop the front 2-3"? The Before pic of the stock suspension and 41's looks meaner to me.

Nice looking rig. What kind of joints did you use for the front?
