« on: October 08, 2009, 05:18:32 PM »
well i used to be on here when it started with evan and chase, and forgot all about that this site also kept going so i figure ill post some progress on my truck on here too! see whatch ya guys think...
 
i traded my 2004 crf 450 for a 92 f150 single cab short bed. 5.0 v8. caged front to back with mild 1 3/4. it has extended beams that are 4.5 wider perside that solo motorsports built, with saw coil overs.it was sitting on 35x12.50r15 bfg ats that definately needed to be upgraded to 37x12.50r17. came with hanneman fiberglass front and back, but the back ones were not mounted yet. it also came with bucket seats that were not mounted yet. thats all i can remember right now. the truck definately needed alot of work....

i went to the off road swap meet in march with the intentions of getting some shocks and ended up talking geoff from giant and picked up some wiy links....the kit sat for a long time colecting dust in my garage. then i took it to Pirate Lab and talked to mike about welding them up for me. he recomended to hard mount the links instead of using bushings. so i orderd uniballs and a anti wobble kit from mekinseys. i got them back about a week later. they turned out awsome...

i got a flyer in the mail about 4 wheel parts was having a spring cleaning sale. i had to go. i needed new 33s for my wifes ranger and new 17 inch rims for the f1. got a great deal on both items. the rims arnt what i wanted but they work for now untill i can afford to get what i really want... so the sat for a while then i talked to professional tire in hesperia about some used 37 and he hooked me up with 6. it made all the difference in the world..

Dang dude! Long time!


I always wondered what happened with the truck. Looks like it came together really well, super clean.

Hope to see you around more often now that you have the truck further along!

Sweet truck dude!  I hope mine looks something like that some day.  How long did it take you to build it up like that?  And how much money did you spend?
