All of your work has been really nice until the tail lights....come on now, five wires? Wire it like a trailer and add some reverse lights...sheesh. All those lights on the back will look like a UFO at night.

Really, if you've done all the work this far, you should be able to figure out the light wiring.

This picture is really deceiving..
They will still be inside the within the FRAME / profile of the cab / fenders
I'll make some guards out of tube / pipe......
I'll get a better pic later

So, In case I forgot to mention...
I Dam-near cut my finigertip off the day before I started the floor install...
My buddy was helping, left the angle grinder cut-off wheel out, so I picked it up to put it away...bumped the truck...my palm turned on the switch, I almost dropped it. Yeah - I almost grabbed it too... lucky it only got the tip of my finger TO THE BONE !!!!!







It hasn't slowed me down tooo much, only lost a week of truck work..

Been there :puke:





I just finished grinding something, and I'm not sure how it happened really but it hit the thing I was grinding again and jumped, suddenly my finger was in between the disk and the gaurd, on the side where it was turning in.

I took the gaurd off, its hurt me more than its helped.

So,

1 week and counting down... April 3 - GOMI gotta go !

Making more Progress...
Still have a small list of things that need to be done... but most can be done later so I can get this basket-case out of Brett's shop so he can get insulation and drywall up...

Front bumper needed to be done, so I bent / cut / notched...
RIDICULOUSLY BIG stinger - ... but that's ok....




Real approach angle (53 degrees on 33's) built in...


I wanted to leave the option for a winch plate and a bolt-on skid plate / belly slider.

Done (enough until I get some 1" tube for guards..)

that is my BOGGIN BEAST

I have run a skid plate from front to rear and this little goofy truck can slide across the top of most mud pits






as for the Taco that is my trail rig and DD when gas is cheeper then diesel. With flex like that I do not take it into the deep mud pits anymore that is a great way to rip a axle off when you do get stuck.

HUGE thanks to you - scubarunner !
I couldn't have built this for my Dad without your patience, help / and all the resources...

Now lets start hashing out that buggy !!!

Those Solid axles aren't gonna go under any of my junk !
