Looks sweet!

I want to fix mine up and painy it and that was the color I had picked if I went away from the retro 80's theme I got now.

Are they just gonna serve as tail lights or do you need them to do stop / turn / tail? I run the same lights on mine doing all three functions by using a 7-4 wire trailer converter box that puts stop / turn on the same wire....just a idea if you were needing all the functions.

Don't really care if I have blinkers, but if I change my mind I will look into that, thanks!



Decided I'm gonna run it on the road this weekend, better put my box sides on to make it look more street legal. I made my old bed cage a bolt on deal so it will come on and off easy.



I also retubed my rear drive shaft, the old one was way bent and suck going over 30mph. The new one is true on the yokes by .020. Should be fine for me.

Well, I say my truck definitely isn't a dune toy, and I could use more power. But aside from that, I can't complain. I think I may have running issues figured out, need a A9P ECU, anyone have one? And my temp runs a little warm with steady driving.

But it did everything I wanted it to do, even almost won a race from boundry to boundry, took a couple hard hits and the only carnage I found was a broken exhaust hanger, oh and my air filter fell off.

Ok, figure ill update this....I've been working on my exo this week and just about have it done. Still need to make my vertical windshield bars, some sort of X in the rear hoop behind the cab, and a small bed cage. First thing I am doing is taking it off the truck, finish welding it, painting it, then putting it back on to finish.
