Your favorite S10 Prerunner?
« on: August 27, 2009, 05:31:12 PM »
I've never really seen a tight S10 prerunner/race truck.. didn't really know there were was a big following for those trucks. Someone post up their favorite S10 so I can check it out, kinda get a feel for what you guys are about.

The tube truck is a truck my boss and I built for SCORE racing.
I didn't get many good pics of the beam setup but I'll put up what I have.

Nice, looks like a good cost-efficient setup, how much did that front-end cost you?

What beams are those? Custom?

The front end didn't cost me pretty much anything. Beams are custom. Cost the price of plate, already had the spindles/brakes sitting at the shop so those were free. Had to buy the brake lines, the hiems, and the shocks. According to my boss, if we did that to a customers truck, price of labor and parts + mark-up on parts and tax would come to around 8k. Then i have all my cage work, my 8.8 rear end and national leaf springs, shackles, and 18" stroke fox resi's in the rear. Truck is out of commission right now. Cutting up the front end to fit 18" coil overs up front.

Siiiiick, looks like a super clean and fun truck. You'll have to create a new thread with some more pics up of the front-end up update so we can check it out.

Where do you work?

I work at High Desert Motorsports in Phelan, CA. My college classes are taking a lot of my time lately so it will likely be a while before I get to do more work on my own trucks. Hopefully it wont be too much longer. Already been down for a few months. Getting giddy to drive my truck again.
Edit: If you want to see some nice S-10/Sonoma pre-runners. Check out www.dezertdimes.com. Nice people, some with really nice trucks.
