Default "Cheapthrill-EB buggy verision" -not so cheap anymore pg 65

Starting out with a 1996 F250 2wd
D60 5.38's Loc-Rite
14 Bolt 5.38's Lincoln Locked
5.8L e4od hopefully np205 twinsticked eventually maybe 203/205 doubler
16/40-16 LTB's with BBF DIY Beadlocks






Ranger Truggy has been disassembled, frame was all jacked up and bent, the cab was never very good to start out with. So that truggy was like a first draft, learned alot, did alot, now I know what works better and how to do things better. Got sold for the cab and cage to be used on another project.

I would love a EB, but EB's aren't disposable like f-series and Rangers. With how hard I am on bodys etc...I could never bring myself to wheel an EB.

I spoke with him about some of his idea's. It should be a nice rig when complete Remember though, if you slam something together without taking the time to do it right, I will cut it back off while you aren't looking

I know where there is a good EB for this type of project. There are trees growing through it though, you can see them through the windows. The outside sheet metal isn't that terrible I don't think.

Its been sitting on a treeline in the weeds for ~15+ years though.

Good luck talking him out of it though, he swears he is going to fix it up and make a mudder out of it - and has for ~20 years
